College Hockey:
Kerdiles extends point streak to 18 games in Wisconsin’s rout of Lake Superior State

MADISON, Wis. — Nic Kerdiles scored twice, and Joseph LaBate and Joe Faust each had three points in No. 13 Wisconsin’s 8-1 rout of No. 12 Lake Superior State on Saturday.

Kerdiles extended his point-scoring streak to 18 games, dating to last season, with a second-period goal and added the final score in the last minute.

The sophomore owns third place on the list of Wisconsin’s longest point-scoring streaks, behind current Badgers coach Mike Eaves (21 games, 1977-78 season) and teammate Mark Zengerle (20, 2011-12).

The eight goals scored was Wisconsin’s largest output since an 8-1 victory over Rochester Institute of Technology in the 2010 Frozen Four semifinals.

LaBate scored late in the first period and added two assists, while Faust had three assists.

Kevin Czuczman scored 16 seconds into the second period for the Lakers (4-1-1) to cut Wisconsin’s lead to 2-1.

But the Badgers (3-2-1) quickly responded, with Kerdiles restoring the two-goal advantage.

Wisconsin outshot Lake Superior State 44-22. It was the third straight game that the Lakers have allowed more than 40 shots on goal and raised their season average for shots against to 37.5.
