Well, a stick salute is certainly due to Wisconsin center Kaitlyn Harding of Anchorage, who came up huge for the No. 2-ranked Badger women Friday night.
Harding, a sophomore center, racked two goals and an assist, and went +3 with three shots on goal, in a 6-0 victory at Bemidji State.
Harding and company today won 3-1 to bag the series sweep.
In 24 games -- the Badgers are 19-3-2 overall, 15-3-2 in the WCHA -- Harding owns 4-3--7 totals and a +7 rating.
