I may do the Sunday game with the kids. It's probably not a good idea to come up with a chant with the words "scalp & sue" in it, eh?

Spelling looks good! ;)

Very nice effort by the Badgers today. After a shaky start getting down 0-2, including giving up a goal in the opening minute, they put together a very strong second half. I'd say their play from roughly the 10 minute mark in the 2nd to the 10 minute mark in the 3rd was among the best they've played this year. Decker continues to show she's the best player on the ice anytime she steps on it. Her goal (the Badger's second, coming just seconds after their 1st) was brilliant, wrap around the back of the next, came up, bumped into her own teammate, flipped it up and popped the water bottle off the goal. The Badgers got way too defensive in the 2nd half of the 3rd period, and M. Lamoureux had some pretty amazing plays of her own trying to get the game tied back up, but Wisconsin held on for the 3-2 win.

When you hold the Lams to a combined 1 point, you're likely going to beat them. It's that simple.

The last period and a half was the most entertaining hockey I've watched at LaBahn so far this year. It looked a little bleak after getting down 2, but after the 2nd period timeout, the Badgers played a lot better. The tying goal by Decker was a beautiful wraparound.

Great atmosphere in the arena over the last period. I think everyone understood how big of a win it was.

I don't remember seeing Doner at any point. Drake seemed to take her spot and played a fair amount along with Unser. Not sure if they ever played a 4th line.

Did feel bad for the older gentleman in the crowd who took a puck to the face very early in the game and ended up needing medical attention.

Hopefully, they can follow up with another solid performance going into the holiday break. We need all the points we can get.

Made the decision to stay home and watch football and missed what looked like an old-time hockey game at LaBahn today. Great sweep of a good conference opponent to temporarily move into third place. Definitely the signature wins of the season.

With 21 penalties between them plus two ejections, sounds like it was a physical game. Must have been a fun game to be at. Serves me right for choosing football over the hockey game.

Huge wow factor, no doubt!

Would be especially embarrasing to be the second D, who got suckered right after Decker pulled the very same toe-drag move on her partner!

I've seen Wendell pull off the toe drag on three straight defenders on one rush, the final one from her knees. Decker's is smooth, but not as lightning quick as KW's.

She was an amazing player, still the best I've ever seen individually. And I didn't witness the "three in a row" of which you speak.

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed that she retired from the World Stage at a relatively young age, but I fully understand there's a life after hockey that became more important to her (wife, mother and coach!).

Ok, no Wendell love-fest on this thread. Decker seems to averaging one to two highlight goals per weekend lately.

A well-deserved honor for Rigsby. Badgers will be leaning heavily on her and Decker during the second semester. Packer and Kelter have definitely stepped up offensively, but would be nice to get more production from the underclassmen.

Watch this snipe by former Badger Hilary Knight in CWHL action with the Boston Blades.

That looks a lot like a goal I saw Sarah Erickson score last year.

It'll be interesting to see if McKeough and Ammerman can play again this season or if medical redshirts are inevitable.
