Nic Kerdiles scored the game winning goal four and a half minutes into the third period as the Wisconsin Baqgers men's hockey team completed a sweep of number one ranked Minnesota with a 2-1 win at the Kohl Center Friday night.

Grant Besse gave the Badgers a 1-0 lead with a goal late in the first period, but the Gophers tied it at 1 on Seth Ambroz's goal midway through the second period.

But Kerdiles scored at 4:33 of the third period and the Badgers held on for the 2-1 for the second straight night.

Joel Rumpel made 28 saves to get his second win on the weekend.

The Badgers are now 16-8-2 overall and 7-4-1 in the Big Ten.
