Wisconsin men’s hockey had a rough go of it against Michigan after opening the season with two wins over Notre Dame. Be it the lack of shots on net late in game two or some adjustment to playing regular season games in LaBahn Arena instead of the Kohl Center, the Badgers entered a two-game early week series against Penn State looking for someone to step up.
Turns out sophomore Cole Caufield answered the call.
The winger had four goals against the Nittany Lions as part of his second collegiate hat trick in Wisconsin’s 7-3 win. The Big Ten Freshman of the Year last year wasn’t the only Badger with a big night in game two, as goalie Robbie Beydoun stopped 35 of 38 shots on goal to help the Badgers improve to 4-2.
Next up is a series against Arizona State. ESPN La Crosse 105.5 will have coverage Saturday starting at 6:30pm and Sunday starting at 3:30.
