Hilary Knight, Brianna Decker and Alex Rigsby are on the list of 30 finalists for the Patty Kazmaier Award - the top player in women's collegiate hockey. It's Knight's 3rd nomination, Decker's 2nd and Rigsby's 1st. With the offensive firepower on the Badgers, I think Rigsby often gets overlooked, but she currently leads the nation with a .950 save percentage and is s2nd with 890 total saves. Her...

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I once wrote an opus of a post about Wisconsin women’s hockey and why it’s worth your time and the post disappeared into the depths of blogging cyberspace. It really was a couple-thousand word epic, so maybe its best that its gone, but I’ve had a hard time sitting back down and trying to recreate it. I feel like I won’t be able to give it what i...

On Saturday night, Hilary Knight became the second-ever Badger and the eighth-ever person in the NCAA to record 100 career goals and 100 career assists. And that would be a pretty good weekend and a pretty big accomplisment, but this is Hilary Knight we're talking about. You know it gets better. Already the top-scoring woman to ever play hockey as Wisconsin (well before the mid-point in her senior...

Team USA, which featured two current Badgers and three former Badgers, got some Olympic revenge on Team Canada by winning the Four Nations Cup in Sweden this weekend. Current Badger Hilary Knight and Brianna Decker as well as former Badgers Jessie Vetter, Molly Engstrom and Meghan Duggan all suited up for Team USA. The win was that much sweeter because USA had lost to Canada earlier in the tournament. The championship game came down to a shootout and Hilary Knight scored the game winner to give USA the gold medal. Jessie Vetter stopped Canada's last shootout to secure the win. There was a current and a former Badger on Team Canada as well, as Stephanie McKeough and Bobbi Jo Slusar skated. Team USA out-shot Canada 60-38 and Vetter saved 35 shots and was named MVP of the tournament. The Four Nations Cup is played every year around this time and always pits USA against Canada, Sweden and Finland. Originally it was the 3 Nations Cup  - since its inception in 1996, Canada has won 12 Gold Medals. But not this time.

Poor Christian Bale never has a chance. As Batman (or “the Batman” as he’s often called in a nod to the earliest comic strips), he is left to brood heavily under his kinky black leather mask. The screen belongs to Ledger’s Joker, even if the streets of Gotham are up for grabs.

Tonight @ Chas. Allis Museum, 7:30pm

Although the Charles Allis Art Museum is screening 1937’s Knight without Armour tonight at 7:30 p.m. as part of its tribute to British actor Robert Donat, the film’s real draw is a more famous screen legend, Marlene Dietrich, who takes the staring role. She plays a countess on the run after a death sentence during the Russian Revolution. Donat plays a British spy who falls in love with her.
