Michigan Tech lost both games over the weekend to Wisconsin by 5-2 counts, but both were closer than what the final score says.
Friday, MTU came into the third period tied 2-2, only to see Wisconsin dump two goals early in the third after a MTU five-minute major penalty. Bennet Royer and Brett Olson notched the goals for MTU.
Kevin Genoe played in net and faced 63 shots, stopping 58 of them.
Saturday, Bryce Reddick netted both goals in the Huskies' loss. The Huskies gave themselves a chance for the second night in a row and pulled Josh Robinson to get the extra attacker, looking for two goals. It didn't work, as Wisconsin was able to get an empty-net goal.
Robinson ended with 45 saves.
“We’ve got a chance, when it was tied," said Michigan Tech head coach Jamie Russell. "We win a period, we win the game."
MTU (5-26-1, 4-22-0 WCHA) will travel to North Dakota for the final regular season weekend March 5-6.
