ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- After giving up an early goal, the Badgers scored five unanswered to secure a 5-1 win and head coach Mark Johnson's 200th WCHA victory on Saturday afternoon at the National Hockey Center.

Wisconsin (17-9-2, 13-9-2-2 WCHA) received scoring from five different players in the game, including three during the power-play. St. Cloud State (8-20-2, 4-19-1-0 WCHA) scored within the first four minutes of the game, but it would be the Huskies only goal of the weekend.

UW goaltender Alex Rigsby made 21 saves in the game, giving her a total of 44 on the weekend.

After conceding the early goal off a scramble in front of the net, the Badgers responded at the 12:30 mark just 10 seconds into the game's first power play. Karley Sylvester redirected a shot from Brianna Decker to tie the game at 1-1.

Rachel Jones scored her first collegiate goal at the 1:21 mark of the second period off a rebound from a shot by Lauren Unser. Jones' goal would also be the eventual game-winner.

Halfway through the second period, the Badgers scored their second power-play goal on just their third opportunity. Jordan Brickner received a pass from Erika Sowchuk and made a move into the high slot. Brickner fired a shot that trickled past SCSU goalie Katie Fitzgerald for her second goal of the season.

Decker later capped off the second period offensive blitz with a goal at the 17:24 mark. With a quick give-and-go with Madison Packer in the corner, Decker received the pass back in the slot and roofed a shot past Fitzgerald's glove to give the Badgers a 4-1 lead heading into the third period.

Packer then scored her own goal on the Badgers' final power-play opportunity at the 17:56 mark. She collected the puck behind the net and caught Fitzgerald off guard with a wrap-around goal just 13 seconds into the power play.

Wisconsin went 3-for-6 on the power play in the game, while successfully killing off two penalties.

The Badgers return home to host Minnesota Duluth, Feb. 16-17, for the final home series of the regular season. Saturday's, Feb. 16, game will start at 7 p.m., while Sunday's will begin at 4 p.m.
