Erickson: Knight challenges Badgers to fill the bowl again

first_imgWhen Hilary Knight requests something from you, you listen.When a silver medal winner, a 100-goal scorer challenges you to attend her game, you rise up to that challenge whole-heartedly.“I know there’s a lot of stuff going on on campus everyday,” Knight said. “This is a chance to have a lot of fun. I challenge everybody to come out and see how many students we can get.”Earlier this week amid my daily dose of Facebooking, I came across a photo of Brooke Ammerman punching a Minnesota player in the face from two weekends ago. The caption was simply “we fight too.”Upon further investigation, I unearthed an event – started by none other than Knight herself – attempting to get as many fans as possible back to the Kohl Center for Sunday’s senior night game.Two weeks ago, I urged you to give women’s hockey a chance and help Fill the Bowl. Now the team is asking you to do it again.Even head coach Mark Johnson is trying to bring fans back for their final home series of the regular season.Not only was an e-mail written by Johnson sent out thanking fans for attending the previous home series against Minnesota, but he also politely reminded fans about this weekend’s game.When hockey legend Mark Johnson passive-aggressively urges you to watch his team play, you thank him and do as he says.There may be this awesome basketball game against the No. 1 team in the nation this weekend – I certainly won’t be missing it – but what Badgers across campus seem to be missing out on is they have had the opportunity to watch a No. 1 team at home all season, a team that calls Madison home.But time is running out. With only one regular season home series left, why not fill the bowl again and rise to Knight’s and Johnson’s requests?Last time they were home, the Badgers filled the Kohl Center with 10,668 fans. Even if they get half as close to that, they’ll be stoked.“That would be honestly awesome, probably the best feeling we’ve had this year,” junior defenseman Brittany Haverstock said. “The crowd that we had a couple weekends ago was unbelievable, and the support here at Wisconsin is unlike any other. To have that again would be incredible.”With hopes to bring a big crowd back to the Kohl, the Badgers didn’t ease up during their weekend on the road.With last Friday’s 7-1 win over Bemidji State, Wisconsin decisively won the WCHA title, something it hasn’t done sine 2007.“As a lot of people say, it’s one of the hardest ones to get,” senior forward Megan Duggan said. “I haven’t won it since my freshman year, which means I don’t think anyone on this team has gotten it.”Individually, the squad continued to dominate as well.Knight scored her 100th career goal, becoming the first Badger to pass that mark. She still also has an entire year left at UW. Knight also leads the nation in goals scored with 36, six more than second place Meghan Agosta of Mercyhurst.Duggan extended her point streak to a program-record 25 games, which came to an end after last Sunday’s game.Sophomore forward Brianna Decker’s 20 game point streak also came to an end, tying UW’s second longest streak.Freshman goaltender Alex Rigsby has also stepped up for the Badgers, playing 22 games for an 18-1-2 record and a .916 save percentage.The team as a whole has had an impressive season so far. Winning the WCHA title – three weeks before the end of the regular season – not losing a game since Thanksgiving and fielding one of the best special teams units in the country, the Badgers have earned their No. 1 ranking.But if you would have guessed the squad would be this successful based on last season, think again.Wisconsin finished 18-15-3, 15-12-1 WCHA. The squad didn’t even make it to the WCHA Final Faceoff, much less the NCAA tournament.Crazy how two silver-medalists, a coach and a new class of freshman can turn things around.While Knight and Duggan are continuing to put up impressive numbers, they aren’t the reason the Badgers are back to their nationally dominating ways.Sure, their leadership on and off the ice helps the chemistry on the team, but it seems every player has stepped up her game.Six players have goals in double digits, and 11 have more than 11 points. Wisconsin has completely stepped up its game offensively and has outshot its opponents, 1209 to 651, this season.The defense has also become the equivalent of a wall, allowing only 1.8 shots per game compared to the 5.2 the Badgers produce.Wisconsin has transformed into unstoppable force that seems headed straight for another National Championship run.Johnson and Knight just don’t want you to miss out on the fun.
