The relative quiet around Camp Randall Stadium was broken around 5:45 p.m. Sunday when a squadron of scooters and a half-dozen cars pulled off Monroe Street and into the parking lot.

UW men's hockey players, fresh off a 36-hour break from practice, returned to the ice for their final push toward the NCAA Frozen Four.

The Badgers staged a spirited 65-minute practice at the Camp Randall Memorial Sports Center that had a little bit of everything. It started with a popular game in which everyone shoots and passes with their off hand. It was followed by skill drills -- passing, shooting and skating around obstacles -- as well as some intense work in close quarters.

The last two practices of the season in Madison will be held Monday and Tuesday before the Badgers fly to Detroit for their Frozen Four semifinal duel with Rochester Institute of Technology Thursday at Ford Field.

"These are our last three (practices),'' UW coach Mike Eaves said. "We know what to do. It's just about hopefully getting that edge, that fine-tuned edge when you taper and not leaving anything on the training table or the weight room.''
