It sure wasn't the script Mark Johnson would want to write, but the 3rd ranked Badgers (2-0-1) woke up after finding themselves down 2-0 early in the 1st period. Wisconsin came roaring back with 7 unanswered goals to top Lindenwood (0-3-0) in the first of a two game series against the Lady Lions.
The Badgers were led by star Brianna Decker who had a hat trick to go along with 2 assists in the victory. She now has 5 goals and 3 assists for a team leading 8 points on the young season.

The Badgers also took advantage of a sharp power play, scoring on 4 of 7 opportunities in the game.

Wisconsin hasn't played Illinois in Madison in what seems like forever (2008) and because of that the visiting team has no one on the roster that was part of that team and it could be an advantage for the Badgers.
Overall, there are so many intriguing storylines heading into an important game that on paper may not seem important, that narrowing this game down to...
