Wisconsin's men's hockey team defeated Denver 3-1 Saturday night, marking the Badgers' sixth consecutive weekend without a loss.
Wisconsin dominated the action in the first period, outshooting Denver 14-5 but could not crack the scoreboard. Tom Gilbert, though, broke the scoreless tie early in the second period, beating Denver goalie Adam Berkhoel gloveside.
Badger netminder Bernd Brückler yielded just one goal Saturday, a power play tally by Denver's Brett Skinner. Brückler finished with 22 saves.
