Following their sweep over No. 8 Ohio State last weekend and the team's first USCHO ranking in over two years, the Wisconsin men's hockey team continued their momentum in East Lansing on Friday.
The 18th-ranked Badgers (14-8-1, 7-2-0-0 Big Ten) defeated Michigan State (5-16-2, 1-7-1-0) by a score of 6-3 after scoring five goals in the first two periods at Munn Ice Arena.
"I think they should feel good about themselves," head coach Tony Granato said. "We did a lot of things, they scored five goals and we made plays when we had to. I felt the first two periods we played really solid defensively."
The five-goal output came in just 30:02 of game-time, which was the fastest UW has reached five goals since Oct. 29, 2011, when the Badgers reached the mark in 23:03 against Omaha.
