Pregame

The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team will try to win the opening game of a road series for the first time in more than a year when it plays at No. 6 Ohio State on Friday (6 p.m., no TV, BTN Plus pay stream, 1310 AM).

The Badgers have lost their last eight Friday road games since beating Michigan State 6-3 on Nov. 10, 2017. UW held a 2-1 lead after two periods here at Value City Arena in the opener of last season's series against Ohio State but the Buckeyes scored five times in the third period to win 6-2.

Freshman goalie Daniel Lebedeff is making his fourth straight start for the Badgers.
