Badgers, new top line welcome No. 2 Duluth in pivotal series

For most of the season, Wisconsin’s game plan has been to suffocate teams with layers of defense and roll out three or even four skilled offensive lines that collectively overwhelm the opposing team’s defenders, wearing them down. Thus, it came as a surprise to senior forward Sarah Nurse when head coach Mark Johnson told her before a game against Minnesota State two weekends ago that she would be joining junior forwards Annie Pankowski and Emily Clark for the game, a move that put the Badgers’ top three scorers on the same line.


No. 18 Badgers stay hot, sweep Michigan State

All season, the Badgers have prided themselves on their ability to adjust. Whether that comes in the form of changing lines mid-game or dressing different players on the fourth line and on defense, the Badgers have found a way to overcome adversity and often earn wins. In No. 18 Wisconsin’s (8-2-0-0 Big Ten, 15-8-1 overall) sweep of Michigan State (1-7-2-0, 5-16-3) in East Lansing this weekend, the Badgers once again had to adjust in order to earn a tough six points. In the first game of the weekend, Badgers senior defenseman Tim Davison drew a kneeing penalty, but was taken to the locker room and did not return.

Resilient Badgers overcome late Buckeye comeback, secure overtime victory in Madison Square Garden

NEW YORK—After beating Ohio State Thursday, the Badgers’ not only had an opportunity to play a game in Madison Square Garden, but also had a chance to sweep the No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes in the “World’s Most Famous Arena.” The game lived up to its hype: A furious late-game effort by the Buckeyes sent the contest to overtime, where Cameron Hughes scored the golden goal to send the Badgers’ home happy.

Badgers lean on experience to prepare for physical series with Minnesota State

In women’s hockey, where body-checking is officially illegal, physical play is still an important part of the game and has a tendency to manifest itself in more dangerous forms, like scrums after the whistle or questionable hits behind the play and away from the attention of the referees. Like in any sport, the interpretation of these acts will differ wildly between coaches, players and officials as to what constitutes a “dirty” or illegal play, and what is allowable.
