The No. 1 Minnesota women’s hockey team’s historic winning streak came to an end Sunday afternoon as the Gophers suffered a 3-2 loss to No. 4 North Dakota in front of 2,435 fans at Ridder Arena. With the loss, Minnesota’s winning streak ended at an NCAA-record 62 consecutive wins.
“For everybody who has been a part of it, it’s been a really special thing,” head coach Brad Frost said of the winning streak. “I think they helped grow the game of women’s hockey here in Minnesota and nation-wide, and that’s a huge testament to them. There was a lot of pressure, a lot of media attention and a lot of excitement every time we stepped on the ice, which was great, but it’s over, and we’re happy to have been a part of it.”
