MADISON, Wis. -

No. 19 Wisconsin (12-9-7, 9-6-7 WCHA) used goals from non-traditional sources to grab a 3-2 victory over Bemidji State (5-17-6, 4-13-5 WCHA) and an important two points in the WCHA standings Saturday at the Kohl Center.

Junior forward Keegan Meuer, with his second goal of the season, and junior forward Brendan Woods, with his third goal of the year, got the Badgers a 2-0 lead by 12:06 of the first period. Rookie defenseman Kevin Schulze scored the second goal of his career goal to give Wisconsin a three-goal cushion.

After a goaltending change, BSU cut the lead to 3-1 with an Aaron McLeod power-play goal at 17:21. Brance Orban made it 3-2 with a goal at 3:14 of the third period to finish the scoring.

Wisconsin goalie Landon Peterson made 18 saves to improve to 6-3-3 on the season.

Wisconsin is currently tied with Minnesota State and Denver for fifth place with 25 points, one point out of third place in the WCHA standings. Denver is currently trailing against Colorado College.

Wisconsin returns to the ice on Friday against third-place Minnesota (26 points) for a 7 p.m. game at the Kohl Center. The same teams meet again Sunday at 3:30 p.m. in the OfficeMax Hockey City Classic at Soldier Field in Chicago.
