Freshman MeKenzie Steffan scored two minutes into the game and senior Sarah Nurse added a goal midway through the opening period.
The Badgers then outshot Robert Morris 25-2 in the second period and got goals from Baylee Wellhausen, Maddie Rolfes, Annie Pankowski and Emily Clark.
Clark added a second goal in the third period to cap off the scoring for the Badgers.
Senior Ann-Renee Desbiens earned her 16th shutout of the year and her 10th career postseason shutout for the Badgers (32-2-4).
