The Wisconsin men’s hockey team captured its second straight victory, holding off rival Minnesota 4-3 at Mariucci Arena on Friday night.
Grant Besse scored a pair of goals for the Badgers (8-17-8, 3-12-4-2 Big Ten), including an empty-netter in the final minutes of the third period.
The Golden Gophers (18-16-0, 13-6-0-0) appeared to have tied the game with five seconds left in regulation, but the goal was disallowed because Minnesota was offside on the play.
Wisconsin’s Luke Kunin scored his team-leading 17th goal with 19 seconds left in the first period, extending his points streak to five games.
The two teams wrap up the series and the regular season in Minneapolis tonight.
