Badgers hockey notches another tie vs. Northern Michigan

The Wisconsin men’s hockey squad used a furious rally to post a 3-all tie against Northern Michigan on Saturday night.

Wisconsin overcame a three-goal, third-period deficit against NMU, scoring three goals in a span of 2 minutes, 49 seconds to forge the deadlock.

Goals by Ryan Wagner, Jedd Soleway and Luke Kunin proved key for Wisconsin (0-0-2), as the Badgers posted their second tie in as many nights against Northern Michigan (0-0-2).

The three-goal comeback was Wisconsin’s first since Nov. 1, 2013 against Lake Superior State at the Kohl Center. That night, the Badgers trailed 3-0 in the first period before recovering for a 3-all tie.

Freshman goaltender Matt Jurusik made 22 saves in his collegiate debut to post the tie. Wisconsin led, 44-25, in shots.
