DULUTH, Minn. -- After 65 minutes of hard fought hockey, the No. 2 Wisconsin women's hockey team earned a 2-2 tie against Minnesota Duluth Friday night at AMSOIL Arena.

Despite outshooting UMD 37-24, the Badgers (11-2-2, 7-2-2-1 WCHA) trailed the Bulldogs (7-5-3, 5-5-3-2) 2-1 heading into the third period before senior Madison Packer notched the game-tying goal that helped give UW a tie.

 Fast Facts
• Packer tied the game at 2-2 early in the 3rd period
• UW outshot UMD 37-24
• Rigsby has logged over 7,000 minutes in net for Badgers during her career

"We could have been a little bit more consistent with our effort in the first half of the game," UW head coach Mark Johnson said. "We got challenged being down a goal in the third period and we came out and were able to able to tie the game up in the first minute of the third. We got some momentum, and had a couple good opportunities on the power play, but we weren't able to capitalize."

UMD took an early 1-0 lead after Demi Crossman tipped in a bouncing puck at the 12:11 mark in the first period. Less than two minutes later, sophomore Courtney Burke answered for the Badgers pouncing on a rebound after Packer fired it at UMD goaltender Kayla Black to knot the score at one apiece.

The Bulldogs took a 2-1 lead in the second after Jamie Kenyon beat Badgers' goaltender Alex Rigsby on a one-timer.

Wisconsin tied the game at 2-2 early in the third period as Packer lit the lamp for the fifth time this year off assists from freshman Sarah Nurse and junior Katarina Zgraja. The goal marked Packer's 90th career point, as the senior needs 10 points to become the 18th player in school history to tally 100 career points.

After the scoreless overtime period, the Badgers fell 1-0 in the shootout as Meghan Huertas fired it past Rigsby to give UMD an extra point in the league standings.

"We also had a few good chances in the overtime, but it goes down as a tie," Johnson said. "Hopefully tomorrow we can come out with more of a consistent effort over the 60 minutes."

Rigsby made 22 saves, and with her 65 minutes played the Badgers' captain passed Jackie MacMillan for the most minutes played in school history. Rigsby became the first Badgers player in program history to log more than 7,000 minutes between the pipes as the senior has played 7,014 minutes and 40 seconds for the Cardinal and White. She is still tied with Jessie Vetter for the most wins in program history with 91 triumphs.

Wisconsin and Minnesota Duluth wrap up their series tomorrow at 6 p.m.
