Wisconsin men's hockey falls 8-2 at Penn State on Friday

The Wisconsin men's hockey team could not stymie the nation's top-ranked offense in No. 19 Penn State, falling 8-2 to the Nittany Lions Friday night at Pegula Ice Arena. 

After going down 2-0 in the first period, Wisconsin battled back to tie the game up at the 11:46 mark of the second frame on goals by Mick Messner and Wyatt Kalynuk, but a barrage of goals near the end of the period gave the Nittany Lions a 5-2 advantage heading into the third period. 

Penn State added three goals in the final period to cap an 8-2 win over the Badgers. 

Freshman goaltender Daniel Lebedeff stopped 40 shots in 45 minutes between the pipes, and junior Johan Blomquist made eight saves in the relief effort.
