ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The ninth-ranked Wisconsin men's hockey squad battled No. 12 Michigan to a 2-2 tie Saturday night, then lost a shootout. Wisconsin (14-8-2 overall, 5-4-1-0 Big Ten) led Saturday's contest, 2-1, when Badgers star Mark Zengerle tallied a goal at the 16:14 mark of the second period. Zengerle's goal, as it turns out, was UW's first successful penalty shot since 1996. Alas, Michigan (13-6-3, 5-2-1-1 Big Ten) fought back. At the 7:02 mark of the third period, the Wolverines got a goal from Luke Moffatt, sending the game into an extra session. Eventually, Michigan won the night's shootout. Michigan goalie Zach Nagelvoort would get the final word, stopping Zengerle at the net to keep the Badgers off the board in the shootout and hand UW a loss in its first-ever Big Ten shootout. Wisconsin lost despite 39 saves from netminder Joel Rumpel. Michigan gets an extra point in the Big Ten standings by winning the shootout; UW earned one point for Saturday's outcome.
