Nic Kerdiles gets a goal and pair of assists to lead Wisconsin past St. Cloud State 4-1

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Nic Kerdiles had a goal and two assists to help Wisconsin beat St. Cloud State 4-1 in the WCHA semifinals Friday, the fifth straight win for the Badgers.

Joseph LaBate, John Ramage and Tyler Barnes also scored for the Badgers (21-12-7), who will play for the championship and the Broadmoor Trophy on Saturday against Colorado College or Minnesota.

Seeded fourth in this year's tournament, the Badgers haven't won the conference title game since 1998.

Joel Rumpel made 30 saves for Wisconsin, which has scored 24 goals during this five-game winning streak.

Ben Hanowski tied it late in the first period on a power play for the Huskies (23-15-1), who shared the regular-season championship with Minnesota.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
