This weekend the undefeated Wisconsin Badgers take on the unranked Clarkson Golden Knights and unranked St. Lawrence Saints in their first away games of the season in New York on Friday and Saturday night.

These first away games follow a spectacular opening weekend in Madison where the Badgers swept No. 12 Boston College in the first two home games of the season.

Neither the Golden Knights nor the Saints have picked up a win this season both going 0-2 in the first weekend of the regular season. The Golden Knights take on their second Big Ten team of the season after losing two in a row to Penn State last weekend.

Last week they put up a good fight against the Nittany Lions but failed to keep the momentum going on Saturday. Over the weekend the Saints fell to the University of Maine by more than two goals each game. Both the Golden Knights and the Saints host the Badgers at home and will look to upset the No. 13 Badgers.

Jack Berry

It was announced on Tuesday that Berry was honored as the Big Ten Third Star of the Week. He was a pivotal piece at goalkeeper during the opening weekend for the Badgers including shutting out Boston College in one of the two games. If Berry can continue to stand strong in net it will be a tremendous help to the Badger team.

Allowing the Young Players to Make Big Plays

It is evident even in the very beginning of the season that there are multiple talented young players for the Badgers this year.

Giving them the chance to get out on the ice and give a new energy to the team worked for the Badgers in their games against Boston College over the weekend. Freshman Brock Caulfield brought excitement when he scored his first career goal on Saturday night. The young guys are here, hopefully for the long run and giving them the chance to grow and push each other as a team on the ice is going to build a camaraderie as the season progresses.

Keeping the Momentum Going on Both Offense and Defense

Even though it is still early in the season, there has been strong play from both the offense and defense.

The Badgers have set themselves up with a great beginning to the season if they can keep the fire and momentum that was evident in weekend one as the season progresses it is quite likely that the Badgers will be headed for a year packed with wins.
