Matt Miller's goal with 9.5 seconds left in overtime gave No. 3 Ohio State a 2-1 victory over the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team on Friday at the Kohl Center. The Badgers couldn't hold onto a 1-0 lead in the third period and fell to 2-10-2 on Fridays this season. UW generated just one shot on goal in going 0-for-3 on the power play and allowed a power-play goal for the seventh straight game.

Three stars

No. 3: K'Andre Miller blocked a game-high six shots for the Badgers.

No. 2: Quinn Preston had a number of chances to score for Ohio State and posted assists on both goals.

No. 1: Matt Miller made a heads-up play to get open on the Buckeyes' winning goal, recognizing the time left and sneaking into the slot from the point.
