Wisconsin vs. Minnesota 1/30/15 UW 5, Minn 7

The Badgers scored first and took a 3-1 lead in the second. But Minnesota responded with four straight goals to take a 5-3 lead. I counted Corsi close as the first two periods since neither team accrued more than two-goal lead. The Gophers finished with a Corsi close of 54.10 percent in 5-on-5 play, while Wisconsin’s was 45.90 percent.

Wisconsin vs. Minnesota 1/31/15 UW 4, Minn 4

This game was close for the first two periods and for a stretch in the third, when the score was tied 3-3. The Gophers held a 2-1 lead in the third, but Wisconsin tied it. The Gophers then took a 3-2 lead before the Badgers tied it again, and Badger freshman Cameron Hughes’ first collegiate tally put Wisconsin up 4-3. Seth Ambroz tied the game late. Minnesota had the slightly higher 5-on-5 Corsi close of the game at 57.81 percent, while Wisconsin’s was 42.19 percent. Wisconsin’s overall, second-period Corsi was less than 30 percent, but that was because the Badgers committed a kneeing penalty for a five-minute major.

Michigan vs. Michigan State 1/30/15 UM 1, MSU 2

This game was close until early in the third period, when the Spartans took a 2-1 lead. In their past games, the Wolverines were dominating 5-on-5 Corsi. But in the first period against Michigan State, Michigan State recorded a 5-on-5 Corsi of 66.67 percent. The Spartans held the Corsi close edge in 5-on-5 play, finishing with a Corsi of 55.26 percent.

Penn State vs. Vermont 1/31/15 W, 4-2

The Catamounts took a 2-0 lead in the second period. The Nittany Lions got one back before the frame ended, and netted six tallies in the third period to take the 4-2 win. Penn State finished with a Corsi close of 56.38 percent in 5-on-5 play.
