Big Ten Hockey Tournament Championship 2014: Ohio State vs. Wisconsin lines

Both teams are going with the same lineups as Friday. Tonight's game starts at 7 p.m. CT with the winner getting an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament and the snazzy looking Big Ten trophy. (Sorry regular season trophy.)

Minnesota has the one on the left. Who gets the one on the right?

I'm here at Xcel Energy Center where there's a mystery cloak next to me and we're an hour from Ohio State and Wisconsin playing for the inaugural Big Ten hockey tournament championship. Tonight's game will be televised on BTN.

Before the game - check out features on both Wisconsin and Ohio State.
