As the 2016 regular season winds down and the NCAA Tournament looms near, the Wisconsin Badgers are playing about as well as they could have hoped.After earning a pair of resounding wins at home this past weekend, Wisconsin (16-2 Big Ten, 24-3 overall) heads into its regular season finale on a tear.
Before the season started, it seemed clear that Wisconsin’s linebacker corps would be the strength, not just of the defense, but of the entire team.
Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, and for the Wisconsin women’s hockey team (10-1-1 WCHA, 12-1-1 overall) this weekend, what they were missing this weekend was their superstar goaltender.Playing their first game without senior goalie Ann-Renée Desbiens, who was sidelined with an upper body injury, the Badgers fell to No. 3 Minnesota-Duluth (7-3-2, 8-3-3) by a score of 4-1 on Friday for their first regulation loss of the season.Starting in Desbiens’ place, freshman Nikki Cece made 26 saves, but her performance was not enough on a night where the offense struggled to convert on numerous early chances.

The Badgers have a long history of scheduling brutal matchups in the early-goings of their seasons, and 2016 is no exception as they have a potentially hellacious slew of opponents waiting in the wings out west at the Maui Invitational.No. 9 Wisconsin’s (2-1) first matchup should be a relative cakewalk Monday against the Tennessee Volunteers (1-1), which is in just its second season under head coach Rick Barnes.
Much like polls for presidential elections, the hockey rankings don’t mean much, especially for the Badgers this early in the season.

Wisconsin, who has shown the ability to play dominant hockey, especially offensively, has struggled to assert their dominance early.
The No. 3 Wisconsin Badgers (13-2 Big Ten, 23-3 overall) made a statement with their dominating performance against No. 18 Michigan (10-7, 21-8), after almost losing to them earlier in the season.The first set didn’t start how the Badgers would have liked, with them giving up three early points, but they quickly bounced back and had a four-point run of their own.
