MADISON, Wis. - The No. 2-ranked Wisconsin Badgers scored twice early in the second period to pick up the Western Collegiate Hockey Association sweep with a 2-1 win over the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves at the Kohl Center on Saturday night.

Following a scoreless first period, the Badgers (10-8-5, 7-5-5 WCHA) got on the board with an early tally at 1:22 of the second frame. Picking up the first goal of the evening was Tyler Barnes, before Jefferson Dahl, who assisted on Barnes play, picked up the game-winning goal on the rebound at 4:31.

The Seawolves (3-15-5, 1-14-4 WCHA) were able to cut the lead in half with one minute remaining in the second with junior Jordan Kwas' seventh of the season and third point of the weekend. Kwas, who also furnished two assists on Friday evening, tipped in a shot from junior Quinn Sproule. Registering the second assist on the power-play strike was junior Matt Bailey.

Junior Chris Kamal made 17 saves in net, while Landon Peterson made 21 with the win. Kamal was pulled in the final minute of the game for the extra attacker, but the Seawolves were unable to crack the UW defense.

UAA outshot the Badgers, 22-19, while going 1-for-3 on the man advantage. UW was scoreless on one power-play attempt.

The Seawolves will return home to host the Colorado College Tigers for a league series at the Sullivan Arena, Feb. 1-2. The games are scheduled to commence at 7:07 p.m. AST.
