Women's Hockey Review Linkorama

In case you missed it, the Women's team was also in action this weekend against the rodents.

On friday, the Women lost in a shoot-out after the game ended 1-1 after OT. The game goes down as a tie for the WCHA standings. I'd have more to say since I was there, but the Men's game, depleted my brain from friday afternoon.

On sunday, in front of 2,000+ at the KC, the Women came from behind in the 3rd to win the game 2-1. Hilary Knight (aka the Bomb) tied things up after some nice passing by her linemates, and then Tiny Captain Erika Lawler broke in for a SH and eventual GW goal later in the period. It was one of the nicest goals I've seen, and as always, Erika plays like a giant despite her 5' frame. The Badger Women didn't look too good early on, but they brought an awesome effort in the 3rd to net the victory, stay unbeaten, and stay on top of the WCHA standings at 9-0-1. As always, the minnesota women looked horrible just by wearing those ugly jerseys.

Next week the cheaters of Minnesota Duluth come to the Kohl Center Friday (2 PM) and Saturday (11 AM). If you are looking for European female hockey players who have played professionally or are on steriods, the Kohl Center will be the place to see them in the equally ugly bulldog uniforms.
