Hey Badger fans! Another successful weekend on the road for the team as we picked up six points before heading back to Madison. The weekend was a rocky start in the first few shifts of Friday's game as players tried to get a feel back for game pace and back in the swing of conference competition. The team picked it up by the second period and came away with a 3-1 victory.
Saturday night was a different story as we came out fast from the start and got an early lead, pushing the team to a 4-0 victory over the Huskies. Saturday's game was much better for the team as we improved vastly from Friday to Saturday and settled back into our comfort zone.
The team took the day off Sunday after returning home late Saturday night, but was right back to work Monday morning. The upcoming series against North Dakota is the most important series of the season thus far, and we know all that is on the line as far as rankings both in the WCHA and on the national stage.
The team has an extra day to go over systems with the games this weekend falling on Saturday and Sunday and this is something we look forward to taking full advantage of. The team is looking better and better each day as we continue on our journey, and we look forward to the games this weekend as a test of where we stand and how far we have come since we last met North Dakota up in Grand Forks.
Tune in later this week for more from the Badger squad!
Thanks for reading, On Wisconsin!
