Buffalo Beauts (0-1-1 1pts) v. Toronto Six (1-1-1 3pts)
In what was supposed to be a matchup between the Buffalo Beauts and the Metropolitan Riveters, but due to COVID-19 Protocols, the Riveters would not be able to play tonight’s game and the NWHL announced that Thursday’s scheduled game between the Beauts and the Toronto Six would take place tonight instead.
In the first period Brooke Boquist would get a breakway in the first five minutes of the game, and she would score from behind the goal line past Carly Jackson to give the Six the early 1-0 lead, but it would not last long as Autumn MacDougall would score her first career NWHL goal to tie the game for the Beauts. Then after trading powerplay opportunities with eachother, it would be the Beauts with seconds left in the period taking the 2-1 lead as MacDougall would net her second of the game.
Come the second period it would be a rather quiet period until the midway point as some fireworks would erupt and both teams would swap powerplay opportunities, but those powerplays would not play a factor as the Six would net two even strenght goals. First from Taylor Woods after her penalty would be killed off as she would tie the game at two. Then Megan Quinn would net her first career NWHL goal to give the Six the 3-2 lead shortly after their powerplay had already ended. In the second period the Six would outshoot the Beauts 21 to 9, and 40 to 19 for the game.
Then in the third period the Six would shut things down and make it difficult for the Beauts to generate any real offense, and with 13 seconds left in the game while shorthanded Emily Fluke would net the empty netter to give the Six the 4-2 victory.
