Wisconsin got two very quick third period goals to finish the sweep by a score of 3-0. The weekend results were expected, but Penn State looked like a much different team tonight than they did last night. Chantal Burke had 40 saves on the night and also looked much improved over last night, and I love that she got her career started against a program like Wisconsin. She won't see anything like that for the rest of the season.
Last night's game wasn't easy to watch, but seeing Penn State make the adjustments overnight for tonight's game was a good sign. They pressed a lot more, battled for pucks a lot more, and just did a better job of things tonight. I'm really happy for this series this early in the season - it's going to do them a lot of good to have played two games at this pace.
