Minnesota Women’s Hockey Wins 49 in a Row to Win Ti
The Pittsburgh Penguins have won 12 games in a row. The Miami Heat have won 26 in a row. The Baylor women’s basketball team has won 31 in a row. But they have a ways to go to catch the University of Minnesota women’s hockey team. The Gophers completed a 41-0 season Sunday by winning their second straight national championship with a 6-3 victory over Boston University.
It was the first undefeated college hockey season since the Cornell men went 29-0 in 1970. The Gophers have won 49 games in a row over all, an N.C.A.A. women’s hockey record. Their last loss was on Feb. 17, 2012, against North Dakota.
