Minnesota travels to face Bemidji State

by Betsy Helfand

The Gophers women’s hockey team will travel to Bemidji State this weekend and look to cap the first half of the season with a perfect record.

Minnesota (18-0-0) and Bemidji State (3-11-2) have started the season in opposite directions.

The Gophers rank first in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association in scoring offense (5.78 goals per game) and defense (0.61). The Beavers rank last in scoring offense (1.75) and defense (3.69).

The Gophers have a 26-game winning streak, an NCAA Division I record. With a win Friday, they would also set an NCAA record for consecutive road wins with 16.
