Ohio State sweeps Wisconsin
The Buckeyes first goal came in the 2nd period at the 8:54 mark from Tyler Lundey. He was assisted by David Gust and Anthony Greco. The second goal came from Matthew Weis at the 10:54 mark of the 3rd period. Weis was assisted by Darik Angeli and Clark Cristofoli. Shots on goal were 42 for Ohio State and only 17 Wisconsin.
Ohio State will play Penn State next Thursday in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. It will be the #4 vs #5 matchup. Ohio State will be the #5 seed. Wisconsin will look ahead to a date with Michigan in the #3 vs #6 game. Wisconsin will be the #6 seed after a season that most Badger fans would love to forget after they won the Big Ten Tournament last year against Ohio State. Ohio State will once again be upset minded as they enter the tournament.
Last year, the Buckeyes entered the tournament in a similar position. They were the #4 seed and they started the climb against Michigan State. They beat the Spartans and then upset the host Minnesota to reach the title game. They held a lead in the 3rd period of the championship game against Wisconsin but the Badgers came back to win the title in OT 5-4. It was much more then the Buckeyes were expected to do but the team was up for the challenge.
