The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (10-15-5, 6-9-5 Big Ten) had a respectable trip to South Bend, Indiana this weekend — defeating the No. 15 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (16-11-3, 9-9-2) by a score of 2–1 Friday before losing by a score of 5–2 Saturday.Wisconsin forward Linus Weissbach put the Badgers on the board less than six minutes into Friday’s game with a power-play goal.

Our special teams did great.”In Saturday’s affair, Wisconsin came out of the gate strong once again, with Matthew Freytag scoring just two minutes into the game.

We had lots of chances on five-on-five. We knew they would come out and play better, and they did. We had our opportunities to stay in the game.”Wisconsin now sits in seventh place in the Big Ten with 25 points.
