MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- The Badgers finished out December unbeaten as they win a hard fought match over Alabama Huntsville at the Kohl Center Saturday night.
The Badgers won 3-2, but struggled in the second period after a number of costly penalties gave crucial power plays to Alabama. The Badgers also had trouble on their own power plays, and were scoreless in five chances.
Goalie Joel Rumpel gets the win for the Badgers, and was 18 of 20 for the night. Mosinee native Chase Drake got an insurance goal late in the third period to keep the Badgers over the top.
The Badgers will return to action Friday night at home against Anchorage Alaska.
