Up next

The Badgers travel to Boston next weekend, playing Boston College at 6 p.m. Friday and Merrimack at 6 p.m. Saturday.


The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team has two changes in its lineup for Saturday's second game against Ohio State (5 p.m., no TV, BTN Plus pay stream, 1070 AM).

Jarod Zirbel and Dan Labosky are in the lineup, replacing Matt Ustaski and Max Zimmer after UW lost 3-2 on Friday.

For Zimmer, it's only the second time the sophomore has missed a game. The other was also a second game of a home series against the Buckeyes, last season.

UW also has shifted around its centers, with Cameron Hughes moving to wing next to Seamus Malone and Jason Ford moving from wing to fourth-line center.

The Badgers are trying to end an eight-game home winless streak against Ohio State (0-6-2), their longest against any opponent.
