Gopher women beat MSU 6-0, tie NCAA win-streak record


The Gopher women’s hockey team won its 32-straight game Saturday — tying the all-time record held by Wisconsin — by beating Minnesota State University 6-0.

Amanda Kessel also became the 24th player to record 200 career points as she finished the game with three assists.

Minnesota scored in every period, including three goals in the second. The Gophers out-shot MSU 47-26.

Senior goaltender Noora Raty made 26 saves and won her 98th career game and also her 36th career shutout win. She is on the cusp of setting the all-time NCAA records in those categories — just two wins and four shutouts shy of the records.

The Gophers will have the chance to set the new win-streak record next weekend as they face the Badgers in Madison.
