MADISON - Tyler Barnes scored on a rebound goal to give the Wisconsin Badger men's hockey team a 1-1 tie with Michigan Tech at the Kohl Center Friday night.
It was a scoreless game in the third period when the Huskies took advantage of a Badger turnover and Blake Pietila beat Landon Peterson for the first goal of the game at 8:42 of the third period.
