Wings\' prospect sparks Wisconsin win
MADISON, Wis.Brendan Smith, a Red Wings' prospect, scored two power-play goals in the third period to rally Wisconsin to a 3-2 win over Michigan tonight in front of 55,031 fans at the Camp Randall Hockey Classic.

The game was played outdoors at Camp Randall Stadium, home of the Badgers’ football team. The temperature at game time was in the lower 20s and wind chills were near 10 degrees.

The crowd was the second-largest ever for a collegiate game and the largest to see a Wisconsin Badgers game, eclipsing the 40,890 that watched the Badgers beat Ohio State 4-2 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay on Feb. 6, 2006. Michigan’s last appearance in a game like this was a 3-3 tie with Michigan State in The Cold War on Oct. 6, 2001. A record crowd of 74,544 filled Spartan Stadium in East Lansing for that game.

“I thought it was a great event that Wisconsin put on,” Michigan coach Red Berenson said. “These outdoor games are always classics and a great experience for all the players, coaches and fans.”

Smith, wo hwas the No. 27 overall draft pick of the Red Wings in 2007, scored the game-winner at 18:38 of the third period. He also netted the equalizer four minutes earlier. Both came with the Badgers having a man-advantage.

“Wisconsin is good on the power play, so we knew we needed to do a good job to kill their power play, but we didn’t,” Berenson said. “They executed as good as it gets on the power play. We were prepared, but just couldn’t do it.”

Jordy Murray opened the scoring for Wisconsin (16-7-4) early in the first period, but Scooter Vaughan tied it for the Wolverines (15-13-1) late in the period.
Michigan went up 2-1 on Kevin Lynch’s goal at 11:03 of the third period.

Wisconsin goalie Scott Gudmundson had 22 saves and Michigan’s Bryan Hogan had 24 stops.
