Bemidji State scored first, but things got ugly after that. The Wisconsin women's hockey team ripped off seven goals in a row, whipping up the home crowd in the Kohl Center with a 7-1 victory. The Beavers were sitting pretty after the first period, but that's when it all came apart. A goal from Hilary Knight started a four-game period for Wisconsin. Carolyn Prevost had a hat trick in the game, while U.S. Olympic players Knight and Meghan Duggan each had a goal and an assist. The two teams take today off, then wrap up the two-game series tomorrow after at 2:07 p.m.

Jordy Murray had a goal and an assist in the loss. Joe Pereira's second goal of the game was decider. It came with a little less than three minutes to go in the season-opener. An apparent goal by UW with a minute left was disallowed in a controversial decision.
