The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team has two changes in the lineup for Saturday night’s game against No. 8 Denver at the Kohl Center (7 p.m., FSW+, 1310 AM).
Jack Berry replaces Daniel Lebedeff in goal after the latter started the last six games. Berry’s last start was in a 1-1 tie at Michigan on Nov. 23, although he appeared in relief against Penn State on Dec. 1.
Winger Max Zimmer is out of the lineup for the first time this season; he has on the fourth line for Friday’s 6-3 loss to the Pioneers. In his place, the Badgers are dressing seven defensemen, giving senior Jake Bunz his first appearance on the line chart since March 11, 2017.
Denver goalie Devin Cooley, who left Friday’s game with a lower-body injury, won’t dress Saturday. The Pioneers had to bring third-string netminder Michael Corson up from Chicago, where he was visiting family, to back up Filip Larsson. Corson’s equipment came to Madison with a student manager on a flight earlier in the day.
