The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team tries for its first Big Ten Conference victory of the season and looks to hand No. 4 Notre Dame its first loss when the teams meet at the Kohl Center on Friday (7 p.m., FSW, Fox Sports Go, 1310 AM).

The 15th-ranked Badgers never lost their first three Big Ten games in the first six years of the league.

They'll be without forward Ty Pelton-Byce, who's out sick. Jack Gorniak moved onto the third line with Tarek Baker and Sean Dhooghe that Pelton-Byce had been working on this week in practice.
