In the third period, Rigsby denied a Harvard shot at an open net by lunging with her stick, which caught the puck in mid air.
Turnbull and Josephs scored late in the first and second periods, respectively, to stake the Badgers (28-7-2) to a 2-0 lead.
Dylanne Crugnale cut Harvard’s deficit to one with 3:23 remaining, but the Crimson (23-7-4) couldn’t get a tying goal.
