Alex Limoges took over the Big Ten scoring lead with a first-period goal, and Peyton Jones made 27 saves in No. 9 Penn State's 3-2 victory over the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team on Saturday at the Kohl Center. Dylan Holloway scored his second goal in as many games to cut UW's deficit to one, but the Nittany Lions held on.

Three stars

No. 3: Jones didn't have as much work to do as his UW counterpart, Daniel Lebedeff, but made some nice saves.

No. 2: Holloway had a goal and an assist and was plus-2.

No. 1: Limoges scored the important first goal for Penn State.

Pregame

The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team takes its fourth crack at its first Big Ten Conference sweep of the season when it plays No. 9 Penn State on Saturday at the Kohl Center (7 p.m., FSW, Fox Sports Go, 1310 AM).

The Badgers previously won the first game of series against Notre Dame and Michigan and at the Fighting Irish but lost the second game all three times.

UW got 35 saves from Daniel Lebedeff and a Dylan Holloway tiebreaking goal with 64 seconds left in a 4-3 victory against the Nittany Lions on Friday.

The Badgers are keeping the same lineup for the rematch. Penn State captain Brandon Biro is out with a lower-body injury.
