Amanda Kessel scored two goals and assisted two others to lead Minnesota over Boston University, 6-3, in the Women's Frozen Four title game on Sunday in Minneapolis.

Rachel Ramsey had a goal and two assists for Minnesota, which capped a perfect season at 41-0.

It was Boston University's second appearance in the national championship in the last three seasons the Terriers lost the 2011 title game to Wisconsin. Minnesota, which defeated Boston College in the semifinals, also won the title in 2012, 2005, and 2004.

Mira Jalosuo gave Minnesota a 1-0 lead 11:38 into the first period and Hannah Brandt made it 2-0 with a short-handed goal at the 18:32 mark.

Sarah Lefort put BU on the board just 16 seconds later with a power play goal that made it 2-1.

In the second period, Amanda Kessel and Milica McMillen scored to increase Minnesota's lead to 4-1.

Marie-Philip Poulin and Jenelle Kohanchuk had third-period goals for Boston University (28-6-3).
