Minnesota also swept this weekend, beating St. Cloud 7-0 and 3-1. The Badgers finished just 1 point behind Minnesota in the WCHA regular season standings.

The Badgers will host Ohio State next weekend for 1st-round WCHA playoffs. The games are scheduled for Friday 7 PM, Saturday 7 PM, and (if necessary) Sunday 7 PM at the Eagles' Nest in Verona. Seating at the Eagles' Nest is limited, so it's a good idea to get tickets as soon as possible.

EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to mention -- it looked like Erika Lawler was reinjured scoring the Badgers' 5th goal at 8:49 of the 3rd period. I'm a bit chagrined to say I didn't notice and didn't think to look, but WHKY Blogger indicates that Lawler did not return to the ice for the rest of the game.
