Hey Badger Fans!
It's been a good week of hard work the the team, both on and off the ice. Classes resumed Tuesday, so the days of only having practice are over. The team has a wide variety of majors and class schedules, and it has been a frigid week of getting to and from class all across campus. The team has managed the transition back to classes well, as our schedules have changed a great deal from first semester.
The team is practicing later in the evening, with most of us having early/mid-afternoon classes. The team practiced all week, while also heading to the weight room twice to improve off the ice. The team was also busy Wednesday night as a few ladies made their way over to the UW Children's Hospital to visit with some local Badger kids. Despite having class, the team has been focused on the upcoming games. We anticipate two high paced, high intensity battles this weekend as it is always a dogfight when we play Duluth.
The team is looking forward to playing at home in front of our own crowd, and have spent time looking over film to improve from last week and put ourselves in a good position to be successful this weekend. The team did a good job last weekend of putting together six periods of hockey, and that is the same intensity and consistency that we are looking to build on this weekend. We hope all the fans can bundle up and make their way out to the games this weekend, as we play at 2 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m, on Sunday, and create some energy in the building as we look to go to work and get two big wins at home this weekend.
Until next time, thanks for reading and On Wisconsin!
