Saara Tuominen and Jaime Rasmussen of Minnesota Duluth were the only players to score two points in the championship game.

Two records were set in the championship game: at four hours and twenty-four minutes, the game set an NCAA Frozen Four record for longest game, and Cornell goaltender Amanda Mazzotta set a record for most saves in an NCAA Championship game with 61 saves. The former record holder was Bulldog goaltender Patricia Sautter, who set the previous record in 2003 with 41 saves.[3]
