COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Two early Colorado College goals sunk the Badgers, 4-1, Saturday night on the road, as the No. 5 Tigers (7-2-0, 5-2-0 WCHA) completed a weekend sweep of Wisconsin (5-8-1, 4-7-1 WCHA).

CC took a 2-0 lead in the first three minutes of the game and Tiger goalie Josh Thorimbert held off an active Badger attack for the remainder of the contest. Sophomore Mark Zengerle (Rochester, N.Y.) did extend his point-scoring streak to 13 games, however, with a late goal in the third period.

Colorado College wasted no time jumping on the board early Saturday night. Just six seconds into the game, junior John Ramage (St. Louis) went to the box on a penalty, giving the WCHA’s top power play unit an early opportunity.

It took just over a minute into the penalty before the Tigers showed why they have the top power play in the league when Scott Winkler put one in the net on a one-timer. With 1:19 past, the Badgers found themselves down 1-0.

Just over a minute later, CC extended its lead as Nick Dineen put his own rebound on goal past freshman Landon Peterson (Oregon, Wis.).

 Fast Facts
Mark Zengerle extended his point-scoring streak to 13 games with a goal Saturday night
• With a late goal, the Badgers have scored at least once in every game this season
• CC entered the weekend as the top power play unit in the WCHA, but Wisconsin held the Tigers just 2-10 with the man advantage

The Badgers appeared to settle down in the next few minutes, but the Tigers kept on the attack and took a three-goal advantage with 10:13 remaining in the first period. Winning a battle along the boards, CC’s Dakota Eveland sent a blind backhand pass to David Civitarese who found the net.

As eventful as the first period had been, period number two played itself out with no goals from either side.

Just 1:55 into the third period, freshman Patrick Daly (Victoria, Minn.) was called for tripping. Forty seven seconds later, Dineen went to the box as well for a 4-on-4 situation. At 16:05, the Badgers went on the power play, but six second later, CC notched its second short-handed goal in as many nights.

The Tigers won a faceoff and used the backboards to bounce the puck into the slot before scoring to take a 4-0 advantage.

With 4:49 left in the game, Zengerle provided a spark of excellence for the Badgers, making a series of spectacular moves through the CC defense to put the puck in the goal, extending his point-scoring streak to 13 games.

Justin Schultz (West Kelowna, British Columbia) assisted the goal and has collected a point in 12 of the Badgers’ last 13 games.

Both teams fell quiet offensively for the final minutes as the Tigers completed the sweep of Wisconsin, 4-1.

CC outshot the Badgers 27-25 in the game, with Peterson collecting 23 saves in the loss.

For the second weekend in a row, Wisconsin faced the top power play unit in the WCHA. And for the second weekend in a row, the Badgers held that squad in check. The Tigers converted just one-of-five power play opportunities Saturday night and just 2-10 on the weekend, while Wisconsin went 0-4 Saturday.

The Badgers return home next weekend to take on Mercyhurst at the Kohl Center. Game time Friday night is 7 p.m. while the puck drops 8 p.m. Saturday night.
