Tarek Baker’s goal with 3:32 remaining gave the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team a 1-1 tie with Clarkson on Friday at the Kohl Center.
Neither team scored in five minutes of overtime and since it was not a conference game, there was no shootout.
Nick Campoli gave Clarkson the lead midway through the third period.
No. 3: Jared Moe has had a few stellar saves among his 24 for the Badgers.
No. 2: Ethan Haider made 33 saves for Clarkson.
No. 1: Baker’s late goal helped UW avoid a sixth straight loss.
Three key pieces
Haider made a nice save on UW’s Brock Caufield from the lunge with five minutes left in the first period. Caufield had plenty of room around him to shoot, but the keeper refused the shot with his left pad.
Moe was in the middle of a sideways swing, but still managed to fend off Chris Klack’s shot on a Noah Beck shot that was blocked to the left of the net. This kept the game 0-0 with less than eight minutes to go in the second period.
Baker won a face-off, then completed a rebound from shots from Daniel Laatsch and then Ryder Donovan to tie the score.
The Badgers and Golden Knights close the non-conference series at 6 p.m. Saturday. The game will be on Bally Sports Wisconsin.
The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team will look to break a five-game losing streak without one of their top defensemen when they face Clarkson on Friday at the Kohl Center (7:04 p.m., Bally Sports Wisconsin Plus, BigTenPlus. com, 1:10 p.m.). ).
Corson Ceulemans fell ill at the weekend and is absent for the first game of the series. The Badgers only have six defensemen left – Jake Martin and Shay Donovan are also ill and Mike Vorlicky is injured.
Ceulemans ‘absence will force the chances of the Badgers’ best power play unit, which has struggled throughout the season but has improved recently.
UW has lost six straight games only once in the past seven seasons – the last six games of the 2017-18 campaign.

|26||Casey o’brien||So.||5-4||Milton, Massachusetts|
|28||Maddi Wheeler||So.||5-4||Erinsville, Ontario|
The Badgers have the potential to form the most powerful line in the country with left winger Daryl Watts, center Brette Pettet and right wing Sophie Shirley. Together, they scored 42 of the team’s 79 goals last season, including an NCAA record 19 by Watts. But it’s also worth considering that UW might be able to better fill their offensive depth by spreading them over the top two lines like the team did in the playoffs.
Casey O’Brien has the makings of a top-six center and the Badgers need it because it’s not a position with a lot of depth. Makenna Webster was Frozen Four’s MVP last season after scoring in semi-final and league games. O’Brien, Webster and Maddi Wheeler have only got about half of the games freshmen normally experience in their freshmen, so their growth curve will continue this season.
With Britta Curl and Lacey Eden competing for spots on the U.S. Olympic team, the Badgers will need bigger roles from some returning players who had been used sparingly in the past and quick contributions from college students. first year Marianne Picard and Sarah Wozniewicz.
Caitlin Schneider only scored twice last season after scoring nine goals as a junior. Badgers might need a helping hand from her and she should be given the opportunity to provide it to them.
49% | Percentage of UW game wins in 2020-21, ranking 17th out of 30 NCAA teams. The Badgers were first at 60.5% in 2019-20.
|3||Sophie helgeson||Fr.||5-6||Roseau, Minnesota|
|13||Grace Bowlby||5th-Sr.||5-8||Edina, Minnesota|
|14||Mayson Toft||So.||5-8||Lowry, Minnesota|
|21||Nicole La Mantia||Sr.||5-4||Wayne, Illinois|
|24||Katie kotlowski||A-So.||5-10||Warroad, Minnesota|
The Badgers will feel the loss of Natalie Buchbinder, who was selected for the Olympic residency process in the United States, but Kendra Nealey’s entry via a transfer from Cornell should help provide some cover. Nealey didn’t play last season because the Ivy League canceled the schedule during the pandemic. She may enjoy a less difficult start for UW, who are not expected to face a ranked team before playing at Minnesota Duluth on Oct. 15 and 17, to get back into shape.
Grace Bowlby led the NCAA defensemen with 18 assists last season and was the first UW all-star team in that position since Meaghan Mikkelson in 2007. Bowlby has played all 136 games in his first four seasons. with the team. Nicole LaMantia was equally reliable in her first three campaigns, dropping 98 for 98. Chayla Edwards gives the Badgers a stable presence in the defensive zone and a willingness to block shots.
UW is traditionally stingy on defense due to good puck control and movement in his zone. This season shouldn’t be much different in these regions.
Katie Kotlowski enjoyed a quietly effective red shirt freshman season in 2020-21 alongside Bowlby. Even with his defensive partner getting the most praise, Kotlowski’s contributions won’t go unnoticed for long.
3 | Goals scored last season by defenders for the Badgers. Two were from LaMantia, one from Buchbinder.
|1||Jeanne Gervais||R-Fr.||5-8||Valcourt, Quebec|
|29||Kennedy blair||5th-Sr.||5-7||Bismarck, North Dakota|
|30||Cami Kronish||R-Jr.||6-0||new York|
The Badgers have been reliant on goal transfers for the past half-decade, and this season is looking no different. Kennedy Blair is entering his sixth year of college at his third school. She started in North Dakota, but the school ended her women’s hockey program after her red shirt year in 2016-17. She then played three years at Mercyhurst before supporting the Badgers’ NCAA Championship last season.
The goalies initially recruited by UW have started only five of the team’s 136 games in the past four seasons, since Kristen Campbell arrived after the closure of North Dakota. The transfer move has kept the Badgers strong at a position that has produced two award winners Patty Kazmaier and four All-Americans for UW in the past 15 years.
Blair’s .935 save percentage last season was a career best, but good for just 13th in the nation. That’s a top 10 stat in most seasons, but the shortened 2020-21 campaign has had fewer scores on average.
The development of Jane Gervais will be an element to watch. She wore a red blouse last season after joining the powerful Stanstead College prep team in Quebec.
24.52 | Average shots on goal per game faced by Badgers goaltenders last season. It was the first time since the 2013-14 season that the number exceeded 20.
