The Wisconsin men's hockey program picked up a sweep of Alaska Anchorage on the road Saturday afternoon after defeating the Seawolves 4-1 for the second consecutive game.
Wisconsin's special teams came out to play, scoring two power-play goals. Sophomore defenseman Jeff Likens and junior defenseman Tom Gilbert each netted power-play goals, while junior center Nick Licari and junior winger Ryan MacMurchy had even-strength goals.
UAA's Charlie Kronschnabel added the Seawolves' lone goal early in the third period with a power-play goal of his own.
In the net, Wisconsin sophomore goalie Brian Elliott had 28 saves to move UW up to 9-3 overall and 7-3 in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. UAA's John DeCaro had 17 saves and allowed four goals before getting pulled for Nathan Lawson, who stopped 10 shots.
