Posted: Updated:
 MANKATO, Minn. -- Facing a 1-0 deficit midway through the second period, the No. 3 Wisconsin women's hockey team scored five times in the final 30 minutes to skate away with a 5-1 win at Minnesota State on Saturday at All Seasons  Arena.

Five different Badgers lit the lamp in the affair, as Jenny Ryan and Annie Pankowski tallied second-period goals, while Blayre Turnbull, Baylee Wellhausen and Karley Sylvester all scored in the final frame.

Wisconsin (21-4-3, 16-4-2) outshot Minnesota State (2-23-1, 0-19-1 WCHA) 55-12, marking the fifth time this season UW has recorded 50 or more shots in a game.

Ann-Renee Desbiens stopped 11 of the 12 shots she faced to improve to 18-4-3 on the season.

With the win, the Badgers clinched home ice for the first round of the WCHA Playoffs Feb. 27-March 1.

Wisconsin welcomes No. 6 Minnesota Duluth to LaBahn Arena next weekend, as faceoff is set for 7 p.m. on Friday. Prior to Saturday's 7:30 p.m. faceoff, the Badgers will recognize their senior class.
