The No. 1-rated Gophers women's hockey team won their 41st game in a row, beating St. Cloud State 2-0 on Friday at the National Hockey Center.
Minnesota (33-0, 27-0 WCHA) has only one game left, against the Huskies on Saturday afternoon, before the conference playoffs start. If they win again, they will become the first Division I women's team to go through the regular season without a loss.
St. Cloud State (9-21-3, 5-20-2) held the Gophers scoreless through the opening period despite being outshot 12-6.
But sophomore defenseman Rachel Ramsey got the Gophers' first goal at 2 minutes, 9 seconds of the second period. It was her eight goal of the season. Freshman forward Maryanne Menefee made it 2-0 on a power-play goal at 12:09. It was her 13th goal.
Amanda Leveille, giving Noora Raty a rare night off, had 24 saves for the Gophers.
