Men’s Hockey: Badgers look to snap losing streak against Penn State

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (10-17-1, 5-14-1-1 Big Ten) faces the Penn State Nittany Lions (18-9-3, 10-7-3) in their final Big Ten series at home this season.With six total games left, including this series, the Badgers look to spoil the Lion’s first-place hopes by knocking them off the top of the standings. Sitting at 10 points behind Michigan, if the Badgers have any thoughts of finishing in a place other than last, they must win all six of their remaining games.An axe to grindThe University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota have perhaps the most storied rivalry in college sports, as the Read…After losing two straight games to Minnesota, the Badgers looked to win against the Michigan Wolverines, who sit just one place in front of them in the Big Ten standings. After failing to come away with that win, the Badgers are officially in desperation mode for the rest of the season, looking to end their second streak of three or more consecutive losses on the season.Cole Caufield looks to continue his tear on the Big Ten — leading the conference with 22 points in 21 games. If he continues this run, Caufield could potentially finish as the first UW men’s hockey player to win the scoring title for the Big Ten since the 1977-1978 season, when Mark Johnson and Mike Eaves shared the crown.With 18 goals on the season, Caufield is having the ninth highest goal-scoring year for a player in UW history — 18 goals behind the leader, Mark Johnson, who scored 36 goals in the 1976-1977 season.Men’s Hockey: Badgers get swept by Michigan, extend losing streak to five gamesThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (10-17-1, 5-14-1-1 Big Ten) was in Ann Arbor this weekend where they were Read…After missing his fourth and fifth straight games, freshman center Alex Turcotte is still questionable to play in this weekend’s series, as he battles a lower-body injury.If the Badgers have any hope of making a playoff run, they would need to make a deep push into the Big Ten Tournament, which starts in a few weeks. To do this, they must gain some momentum now to hit their stride and pick up some much needed points.In what should be a series of action-packed games, expect the Badgers to try and ride the crowd’s energy at the Kohl Center to turn their season around.Both games will be played at the Kohl Center at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday night. Both will be broadcast live on WIBA radio and Saturday night’s game will be shown on Fox Sports Wisconsin.last_img read more

Sickles to Open Second Location in Red Bank

first_imgBy Judy O’Gorman AlvarezRED BANK – Sickles Market, the 100-plus year old farm market will open a second location on the West side of Red Bank in late 2017.The 8,000-square-foot planned building will be on the site of the former Anderson Moving and Storage building on Bridge Avenue that has been empty for decades.The new market will be an important part of the gentrification of Red Bank’s West side.Sickles is leasing the location from Metrovation and working with the architecture firm Richardson Smith Architects.“We feel we have a strong brand in the area,” said Bob Sickles, owner of Sickles Market, which started more than 100 years ago.The new Sickles Market will have similar inventory in both stores. A new addition to the fare – in both Red Bank and Little Silver locations – will be seafood.“It will all be devoted to food,” says Sickles. With little room for the gift and garden centers now found at the Little Silver market, aThe Sickles family once operated a grocery, wine, and liquor store in Red Bank around the 1960s-70s, said Bob Sickle. Photo courtesy Sickles Familypossible pop-up garden center may be added.The sprawling ground floor will house produce, bakery, seafood and specialty foods and limited seating, while upstairs floor will have office space. An important element will be 155 parking spaces. “Parking is key in Red Bank,” Sickles said.“The future for us is focused on perishables in the food area,” he said. “Cheese in particular is our strong suit; charcuterie is something we’re going to take even further” in the Red Bank location.What this will mean for Red Bank is a continued gentrification of Red Bank and the Westside in particular. “And I imagine at least 40 or 50 jobs will be added” he said.Sickles thinks a market like this will allow shoppers a convenient place for produce, gourmet foods and now seafood, with access to the bridges leading to Middletown and River Plaza, in addition to the Red Bank train station.Sickles said the move to the Red Bank location is almost fitting as his grandfather once had a store in Red Bank for a time in the early 1900s. Also, Sickles said, he knew the Anderson children while growing up.“We realize we’re in the midst of suburbia,” and Red Bank is a semi-urban area. “We’re going to need nice urban places for people to live and save green space area.”last_img read more
