  • The No. 1-ranked Badgers reached the Frozen Four for the second time ever by defeating No. 6-ranked Harvard, 1-0, in four overtimes in an NCAA quarterfinal. It was played on March 10 at the Kohl Center and the game attracted the second most fans to ever watch a women's college hockey game - a crowd of 5,125. [3]

The game winning goal was scored by Junior Jinelle Zaugg. She received a pass from Sara Bauer that went over Harvard goalie Brittany Martin's shoulder to end the game after 127 minutes and :09 seconds of play. The Badgers' seven-period game ranks as the second longest game in NCAA history, the longest played in 1996 when New Hampshire defeated Providence 3-2 in five overtimes. [4]
