‘It really shows our team identity’: On the ice, Badgers continue to win in a variety of ways

MADISON, Wis. — Ever since the Wisconsin women’s hockey team dropped its season opener to Penn State, it has been lights out. The Badgers are riding a seven-game win streak, which includes four shutouts and an overtime victory on the road.

Over the weekend, Wisconsin completed its third sweep of the season in defeating St. Cloud State off Caroline Harvey’s overtime goal.

Looking at the different ways in which this team has won, only a month into the season, and the contributions they are getting from all levels has caught the attention of the upperclassman.

“It really shows our team identity,” junior forward Casey O’Brien said Tuesday afternoon. “We know that no game is going to be easy and I think we learned that from our first game with Penn State.”

Chayla Edwards, a senior defender, added that the team did not like the feeling after the season opener so, “let’s just do everything we can to not let that happen again.”

“It’s cool to see how we’ve gone from that first game to this past game,” she added.
