In the opening period, Dowell scored his team-leading seventh goal of the season at the 19:00 mark. The puck deflected off Dowell's skate, was reviewed and eventually upheld as a goal. Michael Davies and Andrew Joudrey notched helpers on the Badger goal.
In the second, Alaska Anchorage tied the game at one a piece, as Charlie Kronschabel scored on a Seawolves power play. Mat Robinson and Nils Backstrom notched assists on the Kronschabel goal.
UAA's Justin Bourne scored the game-winner just 33 seconds into the third frame during another Alaska Anchorage power play, giving the Seawolves their first conference win of the season. UAA improved to 3-3-2 overall and 1-3-1 in the WCHA.
The Badgers pulled goalie Brian Elliott from the net with just under a minute left adding an extra attacker, but were unable to capitalize with a goal.
Elliott ended the night with 24 saves, while Alaska Anchorage's Nathan Lawson recorded 22. Wisconsin was 1-for-5 on the power play, while the Seawolves were 2-for-4.
UW return's home next weekend as they play host to Denver. Last year Bucky lost both games home games against the Pioneers. Game time is set for 7 p.m. both Friday and Saturday nights.
