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.
It was expected to be one of the most exciting games of the college hockey season, and that it was. In a breathtaking back-and-fourth contest, Minnesota and Boston College skated to a 3-3 tie Friday night.
