MADISON -

Junior forward Taylor Holstrom scored the game-winning goal with 34 seconds left in overtime as the Penn State men's hockey team erased a 2-0 deficit in a 3-2 overtime victory against No. 16 Wisconsin in its season finale at the Kohl Center Monday night.

The Nittany Lions, who defeated a ranked opponent for the first time and improved to 3-2-0 against future Big Ten opponents, finished their inaugural NCAA Division I campaign at 13-14-0.

Penn State, which also defeated Michigan State Jan. 26, improved to 10-2-0 when scoring a power-play goal.

Wisconsin led 2-0 in the third period after goals from Mark Zengerle and Joseph LaBate.

The Nittany Lions then began to claw back beginning with Holstrom's marker. The forward tallied his first of the game at 6:48 of the period and, with 7:44 left in regulation. Casey Bailey tied the game with a power-play marker.

The stage was then set for Holstrom's heroics in the overtime frame. Bailey gloved a clearing attempt at the blue line and worked the puck toward the cage. After  Max Gardiner's attempt was stopped, Holstrom fired the game-winner to the back of the cage.

Freshman netminder  Matthew Skoff matched a career-high with 42 saves while Landon Peterson stopped 33 shots for the Badgers.

Wisconsin outshot the Nittany Lions, 44-36, and went 0-for-4 on the power play. The Nittany Lions finished 1-for-4 with the man advantage.
