Penn State Hockey Drops Big Ten Tournament Opener

Nittany Nation

Penn State men’s hockey almost pulled off the comeback against Wisconsin at home to open Big Ten Tournament play.

Wisconsin scored the game-winning goal with about 1:30 left in the third period. Penn State had a power play wtih 30 seconds left – pulled its goalie – and went 6-on-4 to try and net a tying goal.

Penn State could not and the Nittany Lions fell 4-3 Friday night.

The team will play Wisconsin again Saturday at 6 p.m. in a must-win game. The first team to win two matches will advance in the tournament.
