Gopher Women’s Hockey: Pay Attention To This

Brandt Lifts Gophers Past Beavers, 4-3
Sophomore Hannah Brandt (Vadnais Heights, Minn.) scored the game-winning goal with 7:19 remaining in the third period to break a 3-3 tie and give the No. 1 Minnesota women’s hockey team a 4-3 win and a series sweep over Bemidji State at the Sanford Center Saturday evening.

Brandt led the Gophers with three points on two goals and one assist, and junior Rachael Bona (Coon Rapids, Minn.) had one goal and one assist as the Gophers earned their NCAA-record 57th consecutive win.

Do you even understand what is happening? Do you?! *shakes head* Look, read this …

The last men’s team to finish unbeaten, and the last college team to do so before the 2012–13 Minnesota women, was the 1983–84 Bemidji State Beavers, who were then competing in Division II, a level of competition that no longer conducts a championship. Among schools in the top level of men’s ice hockey, the last unbeaten season was by the Cornell Big Red in 1969–70, who went 29–0–0 in the University Division (the predecessor to today’s Division I).

The 1955–56 Clarkson Golden Knights were undefeated (23–0–0), and Coach Bill Harrison won the NCAA Coach of the Year award, but Clarkson skipped the NCAA tournament because Clarkson had seniors with (4) years of college play which was against NCAA rules at the time.

The most consecutive professional ice hockey wins by a team is 21 by the Cardiff Devils (UK) in the Elite Ice Hockey League (UK) from 31 October 2010 to 15 January 2011. The Devils outscored opponents by a combined score of 111-38 during their perfect run.

The longest NHL Winning Streak Overall: 35 games, by 1979–80 Philadelphia Flyers (25 wins, 10 ties)

Jesus, you guys, this is the longest winning streak in hockey on any level, and it is happening in Minnesota.

I mean, what can you say … girls rule, boys drool.
