This week in Wisconsin hockey

Wisconsin (11-8-1, 4-2-0-0 Big Ten) can move into a tie for first place in the Big Ten standings this week when it takes on No. 8 Ohio State (12-4-6, 3-2-1-1 Big Ten) on Thursday in Columbus, Ohio at 6 p.m. CT, and Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York as part of "Super Saturday."

On "Super Saturday," the Badgers skate at 6 p.m. CT, after the Wisconsin men's basketball team takes on Rutgers at 11 a.m. CT.

Thursday's game can be seen online at BTN Plus, while Saturday's game airs on BTN. Both games can be heard on 1310 WIBA in Madison and on iHeartRadio as well as the Badgers Radio Network.

Wisconsin enters the week after posting a home split against Minnesota, while Ohio State won and tied at No. 1 Penn State.

Although the teams have met just 24 times, the Badgers and Buckeyes have played 14 times since the 2013-14 season.

Wisconsin has a 4-6-3 record over that time frame.

The Badgers are 0-3-3 in the last six meetings between the schools, with the last victory coming on Feb. 14, 2015, a 3-2 win in Columbus. 

UW and OSU have met twice in post-season play, with Wisconsin winning both games. The Badgers won 1-0 in overtime in the opening round of the 2004 NCAA tournament.

Wisconsin then defeated the Buckeyes in the inaugural Big Ten tournament finals in 2014, winning 5-4 in overtime.

The two teams have played six neutral site games, with Wisconsin owning a 5-1-0 record, including a 4-2 Badgers triumph at Lambeau Field in 2006.
