MADISON, Wis. – The 13th-ranked Wisconsin men’s hockey team (10-6-1, 2-2-0-0 Big Ten) fell behind just 37 seconds into the game and never quite had it on Friday night at the Kohl Center, falling 3-2 to Alaska Anchorage (9-8-2, 5-7-2 WCHA).

Wisconsin tied the game early in the second period on a Tyler Barnes power-play goal, but fell behind 3-1 by the end of the second period.

A power-play goal by Mark Zengerle at 14:32 of the third period made it a 3-2 game, but that was as close as the Badgers would get.

• Tyler Barnes and Mark Zengerle both posted a goal and an assist, while Michael Mersch posted two assists to make up all UW’s scoring.
• Wisconsin tied a season-best with a 2-for-4 power-play performance.
• UW lost for the first time at home this season and now sits 9-1-1 at the Kohl Center.
• The loss snapped UW’s six-game winning streak, its seven-game winning streak against UAA and its 15-game home winning streak against the Seawolves.
