Wisconsin beat UAH 5-0 on Friday. There’s not much to say about this, but that the 14th-ranked Badgers dominated in just about everything, including shots on goal (55-9) and faceoffs (33-11).
The Chargers didn’t get a shot on goal until the second period, and narrowly avoided tying the record for fewest shots on goal in the game.
And despite all that, Wisconsin only led 2-0 after two periods, thanks in part to great goaltending. Joel Rumpel got credit for the victory and the shutout, but the Charger goaltenders were the ones who really saw action.
Matt Larose got the start, stopping 23 of 25 shots in the first period. He left the game after the first with a cut, and Carmine Guerriero came in and made 27 saves.
The maligned UAH penalty kill also had a good night, stopping all five Wisconsin power plays.
Both teams face off again tomorrow night at 8 p.m. The game can be seen on Fox College Sports Central.
