Game day: No. 4 CC 0, No. 13 Wisconsin 1 (end of 1st period)

MADISON, Wis. -- Simple. Relentless. Dictate.
With those three words guiding its efforts, Wisconsin crashed into No. 4 Colorado College's offensive zone after the opening face-off and came away with a goal just 13 seconds into the first period Saturday.
Fourth-line center Sean Dolan swatted the puck out of midair and over goaltender Richard Bachman's outstretched left leg to give the No. 13 Badgers a 1-0 advantage off of their first shot.
Wisconsin didn't quit, playing a much more physical game than in Friday's 2-0 CC win.
Back-to-back penalties by the Tigers gave Wisconsin a chance to improve on its lamentable power play. CC killed both penalties to extend the Badgers' streak to 2 for 46 (4.3 percent) on the power play since Nov. 16 at CC.
The Tigers recovered from the early goal to outshoot Wisconsin 9-8.
CC has never swept Wisconsin at Kohl Center and last earned a sweep in Madison Dec. 8-9, 1995. That season, the Tigers advanced to the national championship game.
