It finally game to an end.

The University of Minnesota Gopher women's hockey NCAA-record win streak stopped at 62 consecutive games Sunday night. The Gophers fell at the hands of North Dakota, 3-2, in front of 2,435 at Ridder Arena.

North Dakota handed the No. 1 Gophers their last loss in a 2-1 overtime win on Feb. 17, 2012.

Minnesota -- now 13-1-0 -- handily beat North Dakota 6-1 Saturday night before struggling Sunday. North Dakota jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first period before the Gophers tacked on two in the second, but it wouldn't be enough.

After the game, head coach Brad Frost tweeted the following:

"Thank you to all of the coaches, media, fans, alums and supporters of women's hockey for the humbling congrats on the streak. It was an incredible run. To go 639 days without a loss and 62 games was truly remarkable and special. I am so proud of our current players, staff and the three teams of former players who were all part of this streak. We will never forget being involved with it. 

"The game has grown and we are very proud of that. We will learn from tonight and continue with out ultimate goals for the season. Thanks again everyone -- Brad."
