EAST LANSING, Mich. — The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team outshot Michigan State 54-31 but allowed goals in the first minute of the second and third periods in a 2-2 tie on Saturday at Munn Ice Arena. Max Zimmer scored in a shootout to give the Badgers the extra point in the Big Ten Conference standings after Jack Berry stopped Taro Hirose with the first shot.
No. 3: Linus Weissbach had a goal to give the Badgers a second-period lead.
No. 2: Will Johnson scored and had five shots on goal for the Badgers.
No. 1: Drew DeRidder made 52 saves for the Spartans.
The Badgers host Ohio State at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
If the pattern continues for the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team on Saturday, it'll have a split of a four-game road swing.
The Badgers finish a series at Michigan State (4:30 p.m., BTN, 1310 AM), looking to answer for a lethargic performance in a 4-1 loss on Friday.
UW is 2-9-2 on Fridays this season but 7-3-1 on Saturdays, leading freshman center Dominick Mersch to lament after Friday's loss: "We can't wait for a game to get into a series. The series starts on Friday. It doesn't start after a tough game on Friday."
The Badgers, who are 1-5-1 in 2019 and 1-2 on the current stretch of road games, are starting Jack Berry in goal.
