Wednesday Practice Notes

  • After a day's rest (Tuesday's practice was optional), the Tigers resumed practice today and turned in a good 1-hour, 35-minute effort with lots of five-on-five offensive-zone drills.
  • Mike Testwuide (high ankle sprain) was on the ice before practice, skating for trainer Jason Bushie and begging to be allowed to join the rest of the team for practice. Testwuide's pleas paid off and he was able to skate in a noncontact jersey for 35 minutes.
  • Cody Lampl (hip bruise) was also back in practice in a noncontact jersey and was able to skate in most drills. Whenever he was not allowed to participate, he stayed involved by cheering on his teammates in typical Cody fashion. Lampl in a noncontact jersey is a little ironic, don't you think? A couple of times, Lampl's instincts got the best of him.
  • The Tigers started working on their penalty kill for this weekend's series against Wisconsin, whose power play is clicking at 30.2 percent (13-for-43). The Badgers' power play accounts for 39.4 percent of their scoring.
    • Another fun fact on this year's Wisconsin team: in just eight games, it has scored 33 goals -- that's 35.5 percent of last year's goal-scoring total. In the first eight games last season, the Badgers had only scored 17 goals.
