Boston Pride (3-2-0 9pts) v. Minnesota Whitecaps (1-2-0 3pts)
In Minnesota for the final game of their regular season series, the Whitecaps would host the Boston Pride, and look to even their series at two games a piece. In the first period both teams would trade powerplay opportunities, but neither team could capitalize on their shortened chances. The Whitecaps would generate some really good scoring chances, but Victoria Hanson would stand tall to keep the game scoreless. Then late in the period the Pride would strike as Chrstina Putigna would net her third of the season to give the Pride the 1-0 lead. However, Abby Cook would get called for cross checking to put the Whitecaps on an abbreviated powerplay to start the second period.
In the second period both teams would ramp up the penalties being taken as both teams would play more 4 on 4 hockey than on the powerplay. However, before the midway point of the period Haley Mack would slide the puck past Hanson to tie the game at one for the Whitecaps. After the goal we would see more penalties on both teams.
The third period would be a very quiet one for both teams, and as a result we would need overtime. In the extra frame it would be Amanda Bouiler would score against her former team to give the Pride the 2-1 victory over the Whitecaps.
