Unranked Northeastern stun top-ranked Badgers in Washington road trip

ARLINGTON, VA — Wisconsin’s trip to the nation’s capitol was supposed to serve as a chance for a pair of additional non-conference games, as well as continue Head Coach Mark Johnson’s tradition of playing neutral site games in areas without a women’s collegiate program. But instead the number-one ranked Badgers (16-1-0) were dealt their first loss of the season Friday in a monumental upset, as they fell to upstart Northeastern (8-7-1) 3-2 in suburban Washington D.C. The Huskies capitalized on a slow start from UW and a sterling, 39-save performance from freshman goalie Aerin Frankel to become the first unranked team to beat Wisconsin since Bemidji State in January of 2015. “We didn’t capitalize on our opportunities and their goaltender played really well,” Johnson said. It didn’t take Northeastern long to jump out to a surprising lead.

Denver Pioneers clear favorite to repeat as national champions

There are 60 teams in college hockey and they will all be chasing Denver this season. The Pioneers suffered only three regular season losses en route to claiming the regular season NCHC title and cruised through the NCAA Tournament, defeating Minnesota-Duluth in the final to earn the school’s eighth national championship. DU returns over three-quarters of the goals from last season, and while the Pioneers will be without last year’s Hobey Baker award winner, Will Butcher, the amount of talent left on the team is scary.

Given this crowded media landscape, it is easy to see how The Daily Cardinal can get lost in the shuffle.
