   Adam Wilcox made 28 saves for Minnesota.

   Nic Kerdiles' goal at 14:32 of the first period gave the Badgers (12-10-7, 9-7-7) a 1-0 lead early. But Minnesota answered with a single goal in each period.

   Wisconsin's Tyler Barnes had a goal with 1:02 to play.

   Wisconsin goalie Joel Rumpel had 40 saves.
