Men’s Hockey: Redhawks blank Badgers


Offense was in short supply for the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team as they fell 2-0 to Miami (OH) Friday night.

The two teams skated to a 0-0 draw after the opening stanza.

Midway through the game, Anthony Louis dealt the decisive blow with his fourth score of the season.

That was the only blemish on Landon Peterson’s otherwise perfect night. The junior netminder blocked 34 of the 35 shots he faced. 

The Redhawks tacked on an empty net goal in the waning moments of the contest.

Wisconsin’s offense produced 30 shots, but none of them slipped past Miami’s Ryan McKay.

The shutout brings Nic Kerdiles’ 18-game point streak to a halt. He was three games shy of tying Mike Eaves’ school record of 21.

The Badgers look to salvage a split tonight at 6 p.m.
