    Both teams learned that you can play solid for 59 minutes but in that 1 minute where you don't play great can lead to a loss. The first two goals you scored Friday were off horrific Wisconsin turnovers, bad decisions made in a split second. Wisconsin's second and third goals were scored in transition where obviously there was some bad decisions positionally in allowing those transitions to work out against you.

    I do think overall that Tosu is the better team.

I hate losing as much as the next person, but all the goals this program has set for itself are still there.
    Hopefully the girls learn from this and move forward. My high school basketball coach once said after a loss that stopped a 15-game winning streak, "Forget your mistakes, but remember what they taught you."
    Good comment.

    One lesson would be that when you start feeling invincible, you're not. Playing with passion and desperation is a better formula. Of course that's easy to type, and much tougher to do. Especially when a strong opponent is doing everything they can to knock you off your game.

    If any of us OSU fans expected a sweep at Wisconsin, we were probably being a tad unrealistic anyway. Wisconsin has a great team and they were not going to get swept at home on Senior Weekend.
    Yup. From an OSU Fan perspective, you'd have taken this road split sight unseen. At the same time, failing to protect a two goal lead in a big game hurts a lot. Of course both teams had long stretches of game time that they'd like to have another try at.

    We've all seen momentum swings before. But wow. Both teams experienced some of the highest highs and the lowest lows, all in a single game. Two nights in row. This weekend was an emotional roller coaster.

    If anyone would have told me we were going to go 29-3 (26-2 WCHA) before the season started, I would have taken it in a heartbeat.
    Absolutely. We're in an enviable position going into the post-season, and we've earned that enviable position. Onward.

    The Buckeyes took a 2-0 lead after one period on goals from Kenzie Hauswirth, but could not make it stand as the Badgers came roaring back to earn a 4-2 victory in the regular season finale. Casey O'Brien scored the first of her two goals in the second period to bring Wisconsin to within 2-1 heading into the final intermission. O'Brien would score her second goal in the third period to tie things up at 2-2. Laila Edwards would score the game-winner later in the third period and would also add an empty-netter at the end to make the final score 4-2. Ohio State outshot the Badgers 35-24. Wisconsin goaltender Ava McNaughton stopped 33 of the 35 shots she faced to get the win. Buckeye netminder Amanda Thiele stopped 20 of the 23 shots she faced in the loss. The loss ended Ohio State's 16-game winning streak. Next up for both teams will be the first round of the WCHA Playoffs. Wisconsin will host St. Thomas and Ohio State will host Bemidji State.

    There was a similar moment a couple of weeks ago in the NHL. It is a violation of one of the unwritten rules of hockey to shoot a slap shot into an empty net. Anything other than a gentle tap in is under the unwritten rule considered to be a show of disrespect and, at least in the NHL, requires an act exactly like what Van Wieren did.

    Unwritten rules are stupid. Personally I agree with robertearle that Van Wieren should receive some penalty in addition to the in game 2 minutes that she received this afternoon. A suspension seems appropriate.

    In Van Weiren's defense I believe it should be noted that she went aggressively after Murphy clearly intending to run her except that the Assistant Referee was totally on top of the moment and arrived on the scene only a moment after the UMD player and quickly escorted her away before things really had much of a chance to get really ugly.

    Duluth plays a dirtier game.

    Both are physical; both are supremely talented. So certainly there's a comparison there. But IMHO, Abby plays more on the edge than Britta does.

    Totally agree with "play smarter." Again IMHO, Britta usually does. Hence my conclusion that the penalty we're discussing was out-of-character.

    But hey, I could be wrong. It's not like I'm watching the Badgers game in and game out.

    I am way late on this, but Ohio State took game one last night by a final score of 3-1. After a scoreless first period, Wisconsin's Maddi Wheeler scored on a well-executed 3-on-1 to give the Badgers a 1-0 lead. Ohio State answered with two goals of their own from Kiara Zanon and Makenna Webster to take a 2-1 lead into the final intermission. Ohio State's Jenna Buglioni added an empty-net goal late in the third period to make the final score 3-1. The Buckeyes ended up outshooting the Badgers 34-29. Buckeye netminder Raygan Kirk stopped 28 of the 29 shots she faced to get the win. Badger backstop Jane Gervais saved 31 of the 33 shots she faced. The two teams are backat it tonight at 9:00 pm EST.

That being said and if true it was simply in her nature to let that aggressiveness that seems so ingrained in her style that it took over in the heat of the moment and committed what can only be called a bone headed penalty. What's the old saying?
    "Play smarter, not harder"
    I've said myself long before last that UW doesn't have an Abby Murphy, but if we did, it would be Britta Curl. But not "slightly less", VERY much less.

    Curl is also a three-time NCAA champ with a reasonable shot at becoming the first four time champ; 8th in school history in goals scored, 11th in total points. So a frustration penalty here and there, we'll live with.
