Gophers win 34th in a row, stifle Badgers (Channel3000)
The No. 8 Wisconsin women's hockey team's offense was stifled again by No. 1
Minnesota in a 5-1 loss at LaBahn Arena Sunday afternoon. With the loss
Wisconsin (15-9-2, 11-9-2-2 WCHA) remains in second place in the conference,
but is now tied with Minnesota-Duluth after the Bulldogs sweep of Ohio State.
Minnesota (26-0-0, 20-0-0-0 WCHA) extended their undefeated streak to 34 games
and goaltender Noora Raty earned her 100th career victory, tying the NCAA
record. The Gophers got on the board first with a goal from Becky Kortum, who
stole a pass from the Badgers to record an unassisted goal. Wisconsin answered
five minutes later with a power-play goal from Madison Packer. Packer received
a pass to the right of the Minnesota net and had a clear lane to the goal. She
faked a shot at the near post and stretched the puck around Raty, putting it
in at the far post, to tie the game at 1-1. However, Minnesota regained the
lead with a power-play goal from Hannah Brandt with three and a half minutes
remaining in the first period. "I thought we had good energy," said head coach
Mark Johnson. "I thought ...

WNBA players love playing in Russia, as 18
current WNBAers are rostered on six different Russian teams (UMMC, Dynamo
Moscow, Spartak, Nadezhda, Dynamo Kursk and Chekavata).
Yekaterinburg is the class of the Russian League thus far this season,
sporting a 6-0 domestic league record [as of Dec, 5, 2012], thanks in large
part to a star-studded roster including WNBA MVP's Diana Taurasi (Phoenix
Mercury) and Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks). Three-time WNBA Champion
with the Detroit Shock Deanna Nolan and current Seattle Storm player Ewelina
Kobryn are also key contributors for UMMC, while Sue Bird is on the squad's
roster but has yet to get any game action as she's recuperating from post-WNBA
