Wisconsin's Andrew Joudrey scored with just over four minutes remaining to help the Badgers earn a 2-2 tie with No. 4 St. Cloud State on Saturday night.

Justin Fletcher put the Huskies ahead earlier in the third period with a power-play goal, but Joudrey answered with his third goal on the man advantage in the two-game series.

Wisconsin extended its unbeaten streak against St. Cloud to 10 games (7-0-3).

Brian Elliott made 28 saves and Ben Street also scored for the Badgers (14-15-3, 11-11-2), who have a season-high four-game unbeaten streak.

Bobby Goepfert stopped 33 shots and Andreas Nodl added a goal for the Huskies (18-6-6, 12-6-6), who haven't won at the Kohl Center in six years.

Fletcher broke a 1-1 tie when he zinged home a slap shot 3 minutes, 38 seconds into the third period.

Joudrey tied the game with 4:06 remaining.

St. Cloud State appeared headed into the third period with a 1-0 lead, but Street scored with 3.5 seconds left in the second.

The Badgers controlled the puck in the Huskies zone for most of the final half-minute of the period, and Street collected the rebound of Davis Drewiske's shot - which stopped when it hit teammate Jack Skille in front - and put it past Goepfert.

Nodl put the Huskies ahead just over six minutes into the second period when he beat Elliott with a wrist shot from just inside the left faceoff circle after receiving a nice pass from linemate Andrew Gordon.

Wisconsin got through the first period unscathed despite three St. Cloud power play attempts.

Badgers forward Jake Dowell was assessed a five-minute major for boarding when he hit the Huskies' Ryan Peckskamp, but St. Cloud took away two of those minutes of power play time when Gordon was called for holding the stick.

Wisconsin won Friday's series opener 3-1.
