MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin women's hockey team won its first-round W-C-H-A playoff series over Minnesota State, with a 2-to-nothing victory yesterday in the third-and-deciding game in Madison.
Blayre Turnbull and Courtney Burke scored, and Alex Rigsby had 21 saves. It was the Badgers' fifth straight game against Minnesota State, and second-ranked Wisconsin won all but one of them.
The Badgers now advance to the W-C-H-A Final Face-off in Bemidji Minnesota. They'll play North Dakota late Friday afternoon.
