The Wisconsin Badgers will face Colorado College in the WCHA Tournament championship game on Saturday night. Wisconsin knocked off St.
Cloud State 4-1 in the WCHA’s Final Five semi-finals, while Colorado College blanked Minnesota 2-0 in the other semi-final.
Joseph LaBate, John Ramage, Nic Kerdiles and Tyler Barnes all scored goals for the Badgers (21-12-7) who will play for the Broadmoor Trophy tomorrow night in St. Paul. The Badgers haven’t won the league’s tournament title since 1998.
Joel Rumpel made 30 saves for Wisconsin, which has scored a total of 24 goals during their 5-game win streak.
The Badgers and St. Cloud State are both on the at-large NCAA Tournament bubble. They could still get into the NCAA Tournament even if they lose, but that’s a bit of a stretch. Mike Eaves team needs to win Saturday night to make sure they’re in with the automatic bid.
Wisconsin and Colorado College have 2-games head to head. CC won both contests Nov. 2nd and 3rd
