Wisconsin beats Colorado College 3-2 in WCHA championship game for NCAA tournament bid

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Nic Kerdiles had a goal and an assist to help Wisconsin hang on to beat Colorado College 3-2 on Saturday night in the WCHA championship game, giving the Badgers an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

Tyler Barnes scored with 17 seconds left in the first period to put Wisconsin (22-12-7) on top, and the Badgers stayed ahead the whole night to end the season for the Tigers (18-19-5). Both teams needed to win to move on because their records aren't strong enough for an at-large spot in the 16-team field.

Sean Little also had a goal for Wisconsin after having one waved off earlier in the game.

Charlie Taft scored for the second time in two games, and Rylan Schwartz had a goal and an assist for Colorado College.
