first_imgThe No. 1 ranked University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (23-2-1, 13-2-1 WCHA) continues a four-game homestand this weekend as the St. Cloud State Huskies (5-18-4, 1-16-1) come to LaBahn Arena. The Badgers head into the weekend having won 23 straight games against the Huskies, one of their best win streaks of all time against a single opponent. Even with this being the case, the Badgers will still have to show up and play hard this weekend as they know they will be getting every opponent’s best shot down the stretch as the current No. 1 team in the national rankings.Women’s Hockey: Badgers nab Border Battle sweep over Minnesota to solidify No. 1 rankingThe No. 1 University of Wisconsin-Madison women’s hockey team (23-2-1, 13-2-1 WCHA) has only spent five weeks of the season Read…Coming into this match up, Wisconsin is averaging 4.7 goals per game, a mark that leads the conference by almost a full goal per game. Meanwhile, St. Cloud State only averages 1.9 goals per game, good for last in the conference. As for individual statistics, Daryl Watts is currently leading the conference with 55 points, while the Huskies leading scorer is Klára Hymlárová with only 19 points.When it comes to goalkeeping, the Badgers also have a slight edge heading into the weekend series with the Huskies.

Campbell’s performance also included a 22 save shutout in Saturday’s contest. Campbell also owns the conference’s best win percentage and second best goals against average, serving as the backbone of a strong Wisconsin defensive core. For the Huskies, starting goalkeeper Emma Polusny has been solid in net, tallying the most total saves in the conference as well as accumulating an impressive 91.7% save rate. Though they have a heavy talent advantage over the Huskies, the Badgers will need to turn in a couple strong performances to sweep the weekend series and continue their conference play dominance as the No. 1 team in the country.Women’s Hockey: Offensive weapons key in No. 1 Badgers’ continuing successThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (18-1-1, 10-1-1 WCHA) is off to another predictably hot start. With little loss Read…There is little doubt that, at least on paper, Wisconsin should continue their dominant run against the Huskies.
