Gopher Women’s Hockey Team Has Record Breaking Undefeated Season, Minnesota Shrugs

The University of Minnesota women’s hockey team skated to a 3-0 win over St. Cloud State to become the first program in NCAA history to finish the regular season undefeated. Senior goaltender Noora Raty held the Huskies scoreless to garner her NCAA record tying 39th career shutout.

The Golden Gophers (34-0-0, 28-0-0 WCHA) carried a 1-0 lead into the third period, but goals from senior Becky Kortum and freshman Milica McMillen helped the team claim their 34th win of the year and 42nd consecutive victory.

Minnesota now heads to postseason play, which begins next weekend at Ridder Arena. The Gophers will host either Bemidji State or St. Cloud State, pending the outcome of BSU’s game against Wisconsin. The first round is a best of three series with games slated at 6 p.m. on Friday and 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Record Watch:

42: Consecutive games won(broke Harvard’s record of 21 on Nov. 17).
42: Consecutive games won or tied (broke Wisconsin’s record of 32 on Jan. 25).
25: Consecutive road wins (broke Mercyhurst’s record of 15 on Dec. 7).
34: Wins in 2012-13 (most wins in a season: Wisconsin, 37 in 2010-11).
0: Losses in 2012-13 (fewest losses in a season: Wisconsin, 1 in 2006-07).

If you are looking for any information on this in today’s StarTribune, go to page C3 of the sports section, look at the huge article with pictures about the men’s team tying Duluth 2-2 last night, look to the left, and there is basically a small blurb about the women’s team rewriting the college hockey history books.

    The news is a couple weeks old, but the commentary… basically reminds me of Lynx coverage in 2011 when they won the WNBA...
