Congrats to the Buffalo Beauts on winning the Isobel Cup and being the second team to do so in NWHL's history!
The Beauts defeated the Boston Pride 3-2 in today's game with Corinne Buie's game winning goal. Goalie Brianne McLaughlin was the Cup MVP after setting the Cup record for 55:33 minutes of shutout hockey.

Congratulations to Team Kessel on winning the entire competition!
Here's how they did it:
Rebecca Russo of the New York Riveters is fast!
If Blake Bolden competed in the NHL's Hardest Shot Competition vs. Nate McKinnon, she could've given him a run for his money... Just saying...
And Kelley Steadman wins it for her own team because she's just that awesome of a captain.
How to break a tie? Let the fans vote and give it to Gigi Marvin!
And then Team Kessel won the shootout and took over the competition completely.

Great news following the upcoming game: It is SOLD OUT! May not sound nice that you can't get a ticket, but hear me out. The League needs to see that fans really care about the game and that fact that this sold out in a city that does not have a team shows great support.
