As BTN's Rick Pizzo says, "Hockey! Hockey! Hockey!" For Minnesota, during the 2011-12 athletic year, it was all about the school's success on the ice. The women's team won the national title, its first since 2005, with a victory over rival Wisconsin in the championship game, while the men advanced to the Frozen Four, also its first since 2005, losing to eventual national champ Boston College in the semifinals. The two teams combined to go 62-19-3, with the women carding an impressive 34-5-2 ledger.
