Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) ---- University of Minnesota Duluth women's hockey freshman defenseman Lara Stalder and junior defenseman Tea Villila will play one more series with the Bulldogs this weekend before leaving for the Sochi Games.

UMD is riding a four-game win streak and will host Ohio State University this weekend. For both Stalder and Villila, they know it's important to leave Duluth on the heels of a couple wins.

"Yeah, that's for sure. It's also for your confidence if you leave with two wins." said Stalder. "That would be great. I hope we can do that next weekend."

"Of course it feels better if you get wins. It feels good, and you can trust the team. I'm feeling trustful for them," said Villila.
