Boston Pride win their second Isobel Cup as champions of the National Women's Hockey League

Lexie Laing and Taylor Wenczkowski scored power-play goals, and the Boston Pride became the first two-time winners of the Isobel Cup with a 4-3 win over the defending champion Minnesota Whitecaps on Saturday night. It was an NWHL championship the Pride, who were regular-season champions, had hoped to win a year earlier, before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the championship game between these same two teams just two days before the faceoff. Minnesota, which went 3-1 in the bubble, won 2-1 in its lone matchup with Boston (3-4) on Jan. 23. Fourth-seeded Boston reached the championship game with a 6-2 win over top-seeded Toronto (4-1-1) in the semifinals with six different players scoring. Minnesota routed 2-2 Connecticut 7-0 behind a hat trick by Audra Richards and two goals from Thunstrom.
