With that tweet from University of Wisconsin Men’s Hockey Communications Director Paul Capobianco, Badger fans everywhere learned the great news that Wisconsin Hockey is back on public television this weekend, with both games against the Lake Superior State Lakers airing live on The Wisconsin Channel and streaming online here.

Join play-by-play announcer Robb Vogel and color commentator – and former Badger hockey player – Mike Cerniglia at 7 p.m. both Friday and Saturday night for all of the action on the ice as the Badgers set their sights on the inaugural Big Ten Hockey Conference Championship that will be settled in St. Paul in March.

So far this season, in non-conference play, the Badgers carry a 2-2 record into the weekend with a ranking of 13 in the nation according to the most recent USCHO poll. They swept Northern Michigan in the season’s opening home stand, but lost both games in a weekend swing on the road against Boston College and Boston University. Lake Superior State brings an undefeated 4-0 record into the Kohl Center, with sweeps of Robert Morris and Union in early season play.

  1. Do you have (or WEB Site Address for) the complete Badger Hockey schedule for 2013/14?

    Please provide if available.

    Thanks,

  2. You don’t tell us HOW we can find the “Wisconsin Channel” on TV. I’ve never heard of “The Wisconsin Channel” and suspect no one else has either. I certainly isn’t listed in the Madison newspaper.

      Hi Richard,

      The Wisconsin Channel can be kind of confusing because it changes depending on how you receive the signal. If you are connected by an antenna and only picking up over the air channels, you can figure out which channel is in your area here – http://wpt.org/Watch/transmitters. However, if you have cable or satellite, your carrier determines what channel you need to tune into. Some carriers also do not carry the Wisconsin Channel at all, you should check with your cable or satellite company to verify. I hope this helps, but if you still have questions please call us at 800-422-9707.
