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.

It's hockey time in Wisconsin!

The Wisconsin Badgers Facebook page posted the image above to their Timeline this morning, so it must be time for hockey! (Gosh knows it feels cold enough outside to start freezing the ponds.)

This year, The Wisconsin Channel from Wisconsin Public Television is again your home for Wisconsin Hockey. The broadcast season kicks off this Friday with the home opening contest against Colorado College from the Kohl Center in Madison. The game will be broadcast statewide on The Wisconsin Channel tape-delayed at 10 p.m. You can find the channel over-the-air in WPT xx.2 spot of your digital receiver, or check your local cable lineup to see which channel spot is The Wisconsin Channel.
