The 18th-ranked University of Wisconsin men's hockey team ended a winless streak at five games behind a short-handed goal by Trent Frederic and third-period scores by Ryan Wagner and JD Greenway in a 5-2 victory over Michigan State on Saturday at the Kohl Center.

Three stars

No. 3: Michigan State's Mitchell Lewandowski scored his second and third goals of the series.

No. 2: Frederic put the Badgers ahead with 3:06 left in the second period with a short-handed goal. He tied for the team high with four shots on goal and was plus-2.

No. 1: UW's Seamus Malone had an empty-net goal and the assist on Frederic's goal. He added a key block on a Spartans power play in the first period.

Up next

The Badgers play No. 1 Notre Dame next weekend, with Friday's game in South Bend, Indiana, and Sunday's at the United Center in Chicago.

Pregame

The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team is making at least two changes to its lineup as it tries to find a group that will end a five-game winless streak Saturday against Michigan State (7 p.m., Fox Sports Wisconsin, 1310 AM).

Matt Ustaski and Jason Ford are out of the lineup for the 18th-ranked Badgers after a 2-0 loss to the Spartans on Friday made them 0-4-1 in their last five games. Cullen Hurley and Matthew Freytag are listed on the fourth line.
