MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin men's hockey team returns to Big Ten play with a pair of home games against Michigan tonight and tomorrow night.  The 14th-ranked Badgers will try to go above .500 in conference play.  

They're 2-and-2 for now -- and they're 11-6-and-1 overall.  The Badgers split a pair of home games last weekend against former W-C-H-A opponent Alaska-Anchorage.  Still, Wisconsin is 10-1-and-1 at the Kohl Center, where they're in the middle of a school-record 12-game home-stand.

 Badgers' center Mark Zengerle and forward Tyler Barnes have each scored in their last six contests.

Michigan comes in at 2-and-0 in the Big Ten, and 10-4-and-2 overall.  The Wolverines are ranked eighth, but they're winless in their last four games.  Tonight will be their first game since December 28th, when they were shut out by Michigan State 3-nothing in an outdoor affair at Comerica Park in Detroit.

On the women's side, a pair of Top-Five teams will square off when the second-ranked Badgers host Number-four North Dakota tomorrow and Sunday afternoons.

 The Badgers have the nation's longest unbeaten streak at 16 games.  They've won 14 straight at home -- and a win tomorrow would give Wisconsin a new school record in that department.  

The Badgers are 16-2-and-2 overall.  North Dakota is 12-4-and-2.
