The Wisconsin women’s hockey team continues league play this weekend with two road games. The Badgers head to Ohio State for the two-game series before returning home to host Bemidji State for the much anticipated Culver’s Camp Randall Hockey Classic on Saturday, Feb. 6.

Before the Badgers head outdoors, UW looks to pick up some much needed league points sitting in a tie for third place with the Bemidji State Beavers. The Buckeyes sit three points behind the Badgers in fifth place. Game two of the series on Jan. 30 is the USCHO Game of the Week.

Wisconsin gave up two late goals to drop a 5-4 heartbreaker against Ohio State Friday night at the OSU Ice Rink. The 10th-ranked Badgers were outshot 48-31, marking only the second time this season UW was outshot in a game.

After gaining the 2-1 lead late in the first period, Wisconsin wouldn’t surrender the lead again until the final seconds of regulation when freshman Hokey Langan stuffed in the game-winner from the far edge of the goal crease with only nine seconds left in regulation.

The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department, in partnership with the Food Allergy Association of Wisconsin, is hosting its second of two "Allergy Friendly" games at the Kohl Center this Sunday.

The women's hockey game vs. Bemidji State on Sunday, February, 7 at 2pm will be designated as an "Allergy Friendly" game. For this event, a number of special accommodations will be put in place to allow families with food allergies to enjoy a Badger game.

According to the Food Allergy Association of Wisconsin, there are hundreds of kids and adults in the greater-Madison area who have difficulties attending sporting events due to the presence of allergens such as peanuts and tree nuts, says Sheree' Godwin, president of the group.
In consultation with the Food Allergy Association of Wisconsin, all concession stands at the Kohl Center will remove food items that could induce an allergic reaction including: -shelled and un-shelled peanuts, candy with nuts, caramel corn with nuts and ice cream with nut products. Products processed in facilities in which nut peanuts are also produced will not be sold in stands. Patrons can also view an ingredient list below for the concession stands' most popular food items. In addition, sections 117, 118 and 119 will receive an elevated level of cleaning to ensure a safer environment for affected patrons to sit in.

The No. 10-ranked Wisconsin women’s hockey team (16-12-3, 13-11-1 WCHA) went down early and couldn’t salvage a comeback in its first loss to Minnesota State. Despite the 33 shot advantage by Wisconsin, the Mavericks (6-18-5, 4-16-5 WCHA) pulled out a 5-3 victory over the Badgers Friday afternoon at the Kohl Center.

It was Team Canada who pulled off the 2-0 victory to claim the gold medal, but Wisconsin fans can be proud regardless.
Seven Badgers earned an Olympic medal for the first time, with only two former Badgers repeating as Olympians. Carla MacLeod is now a two-time gold medalist while Molly Engstrom can add a silver medal with her bronze from 2006.
Its definetly great to see so many Badgers and former Badgers win medals, but I definetly dont share the author's opinion of it being OK that we lost gold to Canada.

Wisconsin’s season ended Saturday night when Ohio State swept the Badgers in a best-of-three series, with a 4-3 overtime victory at the Eagle’s Nest in Verona, Wis.

With just over a minute left in regulation, UW’s Kyla Sanders (Fort Myers, Fla.) knotted the score to give the Badgers new life and send the game to overtime. However, the comeback fell short when Ohio State’s Raelyn LaRocque capitalized on a one-on-one with senior goaltender Alannah McCready (Blaine, Minn.) just 3:39 into the extra frame.

“We definitely felt that we had the momentum, especially after getting that last shot in the period,” McCready said. “We had momentum in the third period and starting overtime. We had a couple power play opportunities but we just couldn’t capitalize.”
Last year, the Badgers ended the Buckeyes season with 4-0 and 7-1 wins in the WCHA play offs last year at the Eagle’s Nest.

Since the WCHA added eight teams and required a quarterfinal series, this is the only time Wisconsin has not advanced to the WCHA Final Face-off.

The Western Collegiate Hockey Association announced its 2009-10 post-season honors Thursday and three Badgers earned recognition.

Brooke Ammerman and Stefanie McKeough were named to the All-WCHA Third Team while Brianna Decker joined McKeough on the All-WCHA Rookie Team.

Ammerman finds herself on the third team All-WCHA squad for the second year in a row. The River Vale, N.J., native led Wisconsin in scoring with 38 points, 20 goals and 18 assists. Her eight game-winning goals and four power-play goals were a team best.

For the third straight year, Wisconsin placed two Badgers on the WCHA All-Rookie team. McKeough, who was placed on the third team All-WCHA and All-Rookie squad, had a team-leading plus-25 rating. In 36 games, McKeough notched one goal and 14 assists from the blue line this season.

Decker, a three-time WCHA Rookie of the Week, missed nine games due to injury and still ranked third on the team in scoring. Decker had 15 goals, the second-most on the team, and 12 assists for 27 points.

Although the 2010 U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team came up just short of gold at the 2010 IIHF World Women's Under-18 Championship, goaltender and incoming Wisconsin recruit, Alex Rigsby, was named the best goaltender by the IIHF Tournament Directorate.

Rigsby had 45 saves in the U.S. women’s 5-4 overtime loss to rival Canada in the gold medal game Saturday night in Woodridge, Ill. Her sensational performance in the silver medal-winning effort granted her the best goalie honor for the second consecutive year.

Fellow UW recruit, forward Brittany Ammerman, contributed an assist in the gold medal game.

Through the tournament, Ammerman collected five goals and three assists to rank eighth in scoring leaders throughout the championship. Rigbsy posted two shutouts finishing the tournament with a 2-0-1-0 record (W-OTW-OTL-L), a .932 save percentage and 1.64 goals-against average.
