COLUMBUS, Ohio — The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team lost for the fifth time in six road games this season, with No. 6 Ohio State running out to a three-goal lead en route to a 3-1 victory on Saturday at Value City Arena.
No. 3: Despite allowing three goals, Jack Berry made 35 saves for the Badgers.
No. 2: Mason Jobst recorded his 21st point in 15 career games against the Badgers with a second-period goal.
No. 1: Ohio State’s Dakota Joshua had two assists and got under UW’s skin all weekend.
The Badgers play at Michigan next Friday and Saturday. Both games are scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team has already lost three in a row against Ohio State for the first time in program history. The Badgers look to avoid furthering the skid when they close a Big Ten Conference series against the sixth-ranked Buckeyes at Value City Arena on Saturday (4 p.m., no TV, BTN Plus pay stream, 1070 AM).
After a 4-0 loss on Friday, UW will try to get a split without two players. Goalie Daniel Lebedeff is out after what appeared to be a head injury following a collision with Buckeyes forward Dakota Joshua in the second period of the opener.
Forward Jason Dhooghe also is out after being injured on Friday, leaving the Badgers with 12 healthy forwards, all of whom are in the lineup.
