No. 3: Badgers goalie Daniel Lebedeff didn’t have a ton of work, but he played aggressively in making 24 saves to improve to 2-0.
No. 2: With a goal and two assists Saturday, Seamus Malone has seven points in his last three games.
No. 1: Max Zimmer recorded his first multiple-goal game for UW and his first multiple-goal series with the Badgers’ first and last scores.
The Badgers play at North Dakota at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Saturday.
The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team tries to prevent Michigan Tech from accomplishing something it hasn’t done in more than 10 years when the teams finish a series Saturday at the Kohl Center (7 p.m., no TV, BTN Plus pay stream, 1310 AM).
The Huskies haven’t swept a non-conference road series since Jan. 4-5, 2008, at Mercyhurst. The Badgers were outworked by Tech and allowed five power-play goals in a 6-2 loss on Friday.
Goaltender Daniel Lebedeff is scheduled to make his first start at the Kohl Center. He made 20 saves in a 7-1 victory at St. Lawrence last Saturday.
