The men's hockey team (1-1-0 overall) could not get past Maine, losing 6-2 Saturday night.

 

Maine kicked off the scoring, as sophomore forward Greg Moore tallied a goal just under four minutes into the game. Senior defender Prestin Ryan followed with one second left in the period off an assist from sophomore forward Michel Leveille.

 

The second period brought an offensive barrage; UW scored both its goals and Maine added three to its score. UW sophomore defender Tom Gilbert put the Badgers within one on a power play less than three minutes into the second period.

 

Maine extended its lead, though, earning two more goals by the end of the second period. Senior forward Todd Jackson and freshman defender Tom Zabrowicz both scored goals before UW freshman forward Ken Rowe got one past senior goaltender Frank Doyle.

 

Maine maintained its three-goal lead into the third quarter before adding its sixth and final goal of the night. Junior forward Dustin Penner scored on a power play less than a minute into the third period.

 

Wisconsin junior goaltender Bernd Bruckler had 26 saves while Doyle had 25.
