Because of injuries to the Thunderbirds' top two goalies, Badgers netminders played in both creases in UW's 7-5 victory in Vancouver.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Cole Caufield scored three times and added an assist as the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team finished its foreign trip with a 7-5 victory over British Columbia, which used Badgers goalies in its net because of injuries to its team.
No. 3: UW's Sean Dhooghe had a goal and an assist.
No. 2: Badgers defenseman K'Andre Miller assisted on four of UW's first five goals.
No. 1: Caufield added three goals to the one he scored on Friday, leaving a positive impression on Montreal Canadiens fans in attendance.
The Badgers open the regular season at Boston College on Oct. 11.
After Sunday's exhibition game against British Columbia (3 p.m., no TV, no radio, my Facebook live stream, UW's Facebook live stream) closes the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team's foreign trip, the Badgers have 40 days until they face another opponent.
So UW will be looking to leave a good account of itself before it returns to preseason practice leading up to the Oct. 11 regular-season opener at Boston College. Coach Tony Granato was hoping to see more of a free-flowing game in Friday's 3-0 Badgers victory, but the teams ended up in a more physical contest.
In a twist you'll only see in an exhibition game, Badgers goalies will be playing for both sides. UBC's Rylan Toth, who played well in Friday's game, is injured and isn't expected to play. UW's Daniel Lebedeff is likely to start the game in UBC's net, with Jack Berry starting for the Badgers. Johan Blomquist should replace Berry at some point.
