Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - The fourth-ranked Wisconsin Badgers put their seven-game win streak on the line when they entertain the Purdue Boilermakers at the Kohl Center on Wednesday evening. Both teams come in after winning their first two Big Ten Conference bouts, with Purdue beating Minnesota (72-68) and Michigan (64-51), and Wisconsin taking down Penn State (89-72) and Northwestern (81-58). The Boilermakers are 10-5 overall, but they have played the majority of their games at home -- this being only their second true road game of the season. The teams modest two-game win streak comes on the heels of a three-game slide, which included an 89-84 setback to visiting Gardner-Webb. The Badgers have only lost once in 15 opportunities, and the team has been ranked in the top-five all season long. Bo Ryan owns 158 career Big Ten wins, and needs just one more to set the UW record. The Badgers are 7-1 at home this season, the lone defeat coming against Duke on Dec. 3. Purdue owns a 104-69 lead in the all-time series with Wisconsin, but the Badgers have won three of the last four meetings, including a season sweep in 2013-14. Purdue played extremely well on defense in its recent win over Michigan, holding the Wolverines to 31.9 percent field goal efficiency, while doubling up the Maize and Blue on the boards, 44-22. Vince Edwards scored 16 points, A.J. Hammons had a double-double consisting of 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Jon Octeus finished with 13 points and eight boards for the Boilermakers, who made good on 45.7 percent of their total shots, despite missing 10 of their 13 3-point tries. Michigan shot just 4-of-22 from the floor in the second half, scoring a mere 18 points. Purdue is putting up 75 ppg behind typical shooting outputs of .462 overall and .340 from beyond the arc, while the teams defensive effort yields just 64.5 ppg, with foes shooting nearly as well from distance (.386) as they are the field overall (.407). Balance has been the key to the Boilermakers success on offense, as four players average between 10.3 and 11.0 ppg, with Kendall Stephens leading the way. As has been the case all season long, Wisconsin performed well at both ends of the court in its recent win over Northwestern, knocking down 52.6 percent of its field goal attempts, which included a 12-of-25 showing from 3-point range, while the Wildcats were successful on only 4-of-14 perimeter launches and 39.3 percent overall. Frank Kaminsky continued his assault on opposing teams, logging a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Sam Dekker also tallied 16 points, Duje Dukan 14 off the bench, and Nigel Hayes 10 points for a Wisconsin squad that committed only seven turnovers. Kaminsky is averaging 16.6 points and 8.5 rebounds per game to lead the team in both categories, doing so while shooting 52.8 percent from the field. Dekker nets 12.7 ppg and Hayes 12.4 ppg to go with 7.0 rpg to round out the double-digit scorers for a squad that generates 75.1 ppg while permitting just 54.1 ppg. Wisconsin ranks second in the Big Ten in rebounding margin (+7.6) and has an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.59, turning the ball over just 8.5 times per tilt.

This evenings game also marks the first meeting between these clubs since their infamous encounter in Vancouver on Jan. 18. The Canucks recorded a 3-2 shootout win that night, but the game is best remembered for the antics of Vancouver head coach John Tortorella, who tried to break into the opposing teams locker room to start an altercation with Flames coach Bob Hartley during the first intermission. Tortorella was angered by Hartleys decision to start the game with his fourth line. The heated contest saw 150 penalty minutes assessed to both sides by the time the game was only 4 1/2 minutes old, owing to a second minor scrum a short time later. The meltdown cost Tortorella dearly, as he was forced to serve a 15-day suspension without pay. Despite the unpleasantness surrounding the last meeting, Vancouver should be happy to face the Flames on Saturday. Vancouver has taken five straight and seven of the last eight games in this series overall and Calgary also has lost five in a row in B.C. The Canucks have fallen on hard times over the last few months, losing 11 of 12 and 20 of their last 25 games. The clubs current 0-3-1 slide is the clubs third losing streak of four or more games since the start of the 2014 calendar year. In spite of the protracted funk, Vancouver still finds itself just four points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Vancouver suffered a rough loss in its last appearance, getting slammed 6-1 in Dallas on Thursday. Tyler Seguin fueled the rout for the Stars, recording a hat trick and two assists. Zac Dalpe supplied Vancouvers lone score and Eddie Lack conceded five goals on 17 shots. Lack is the clubs No. 1 option in net since the club dealt Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday and the rookie could get another start on Saturday. "I think were all kind of disappointed with the way it has been here lately, and I know we are not out of a playoff spot," Lack said.dddddddddddd "We just have to battle through it. Weve got to refocus and come back on Saturday." Jacob Markstrom, who was one of the players acquired in the trade that sent Luongo to the Panthers, made his Vancouver debut at the start of the third and gave up one goal on five shots. Shawn Matthias, another player gained in the Luongo trade, failed to register a point in his first game with the Canucks, but he did fire seven shots on net. Canucks forward Zack Kassian was given a boarding major and a game misconduct for his hit on Dallas defenseman Brenden Dillon in the loss. On Friday, Kassian was handed a three-game suspension and hell serve the first part of that ban on Saturday. The Canucks will try to get something positive going while playing their next two games on home ice. Vancouver is 15-10-6 as the host this season and will cap a brief two-game stay at Rogers Arena when it welcomes the New York Islanders on Monday. The Flames, who are 13 points out of a playoff spot, were able to win a second straight game on Friday night, rallying to beat the visiting New York Islanders by a 4-3 score. Joe Colborne scored twice in a three-goal third-period burst to help Calgary down the Islanders at the Saddledome. Sean Monahan also tallied during the rally, while Markus Granlund added a first-period short-handed goal for the Flames, winners in three of four and nine of their last 13 games. Joni Ortio came up with 23 saves for the win. "As a team we were turning it over too much in the first two periods," said Calgary forward Mark Giordano. "But then we rallied in the third and it felt good to get this win." Forwards Jiri Hudler and Matt Stajan and defenseman Dennis Wideman all missed Fridays game and are questionable for Saturday. Calgary has lost of its last three road games and is just 11-16-4 as the visiting team this season.
