Gophers Tie NCAA Home Unbeaten Streak

Along with the Gophers' NCAA-record 59-game winning streak, the Minnesota women's hockey team also has now tied the NCAA women's hockey record for the longest home unbeaten streak.

Minnesota's 4-1 win over Minnesota State last Friday marked the team's 30th-straight victory at home in Ridder Arena. The Gophers are now tied with Harvard's unbeaten mark of 30 games set Feb. 2, 2002 to Jan. 11, 2004.
