On a day filled with much hype and excitement, the Wisconsin men's hockey team pulled through in New York City.
Despite losing a two-goal lead with under two minutes to play in regulation, the Badgers (13-8-1, 6-2-0-0 Big Ten) defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes (12-6-6, 3-4-1-1) 3-2, in overtime, at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
"To walk in to it and actually participate in a game, a meaningful game, it was a special moment for them and I'm just happy to be here with them and be part of it too," head coach Tony Granato said.
The win finished off a great day for the Badgers at MSG. Earlier in the day, the Wisconsin basketball team made a furious comeback late in regulation, then went on to a 61-54 overtime win over Rutgers.
