Badger Men: The Aftermath

Andy Baggot talks about the aftermath of the North Dakota-Wisconsin Men's Hockey series, including the fact that Bucky Badger apparently took one for the team when North Dakota's Joe Finley slashed him in the leg as Finley was heading to the locker room. The most interesting part of the piece is that this is the first game in which Turris has not scored a point in almost 50 contests spanning 10 months. It figures that it happened at the very first game I went to see Turris play....I guess I better stay away from the Kohl Center.

Todd Milewski recaps the melee near the end of Saturday's game and points out that after a "quiet" night of penalties on Friday, Saturday's total probably brought the weekend series back towards a normal number of penalty minutes for a Wisconsin-North Dakota series.

Here's a link to the video of the skirmish between UW & UND.
