Border Battle: Gophers drop Badgers for national championship spot

The No. 1 seed Gopher women's hockey team emerged triumphant in a Frozen Four border battle against the Wisconsin Badgers at Ridder Arena in on Friday night. The Gophers beat the Badgers 3-1 and face the winner of Friday's second semifinal game between No. 2 seed Boston College (34-2-2) and No. 3 seed Harvard (26-5-3) in the national championship game on Sunday.

"We're obviously ecstatic with the result here tonight," Minnesota head coach Brad Frost said. "We're blessed, fortunate and grateful for the opportunity to play again on Sunday. Wisconsin was awesome all night, just like we knew they would be. If not for Amanda Leveille, I'm not sure we would've won that game because she was unbelievable."
