Wisconsin Badgers give up 4 power-play goals in 'unacceptable' loss to Penn State in series opener

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — No. 12 Penn State scored four times on the power play and never looked back after taking the lead 47 seconds into the game en route to a 6-1 victory over the No. 7 University of Wisconsin men's hockey team on Thursday in the Big Ten Conference opener at Pegula Ice Arena.

Three stars

No. 3: Sam Sternschein scored in the first minute to set the tone and later added an assist.

No. 2: Aarne Talvitie scored a goal to go with his two assists.

No. 1: Peyton Jones frustrated the Badgers by making 38 saves.

The Badgers and the Nittany Lions close the series at 5 p.m. Friday.

Pregame

For the third straight game, the No. 7 University of Wisconsin men's hockey team will play without one of its top freshman forwards Thursday when it plays at No. 12 Penn State (6 p.m., BTN, FoxSports.com, 1310 AM).

Dylan Holloway is out of the lineup with an undisclosed injury. He missed two days of practice this week before returning Wednesday and for Thursday morning's skate. But he didn't appear on the line chart.

Freshman center Alex Turcotte returned to the lineup after missing last weekend's home split with Clarkson. He's back between Linus Weissbach and Cole Caufield.

For the Nittany Lions, noted Badgers nemesis Liam Folkes is out with an injury.
