After last night's bombarding 7-1 victory, tonight's 4-2 win seemed like a grinder. Yet, aside from a late-game barrage, it felt like the Badgers had control of the entire match. Midway through the final period, the announcers on my broadcast commented that Minnesota State had not changed their game plan. I think they were saying that the Mavericks hadn't panicked, but it also made me wonder why, ...

After an absolutely awful few weeks of the season, the Badger men ended on a spectacular high note, beating McNaughton cup winners North Dakota Saturday. Derek Stepan scored two short-handed goals in one penalty kill (and had more than one chance to make a natural hat-trick short-handed) and the Kohl Center was louder than I'd heard it in a long time - probably not since 2006's championship run.Wi...

Congrats to the ladies for winning their fourth title in five years. More than once this season I have said how much it sucks for the Badgers that in a season where they were undefeated more than halfway through the season and have just a few losses (I'm at work and can't access the internet to find the exact number - thank goodness Blogger's a Google company so I'm allowed access) that not only i...

Jamie McBain is a senior defender for the Badgers. That doesn't stop him from being the team's top-scorer, with 28 points. Nor did it keep him from winning WCHA Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season.McBain scored the opening goal of the Badgers' weekend when he notched a short-handed score just before the end of the first period Friday night to totally take the wind out of t...

Voting should end now and Mike Eaves should win coach of the year this season. After an abysmal 0-6-1 start to the season, the Badgers were looking rough, run-over and ragged. They started with 5 of 7 on the road, with the only home games being against Minnesota - never an easy task. They faced the #1 and #4 teams in the country the first weekend and it didn't let down from there. Now, the team...
