PWHL: Ottawa defeats Boston in shootout | The Boston Globe

Wednesday night was a big night for both Boston and Ottawa. With Ottawa ahead of the standings with just 2 points, Boston needed a regulation win. This was the first matchup between Boston and Ottawa since the trade that sent Lexie Adzija to Boston and Shiann Darkangelo to Ottawa. Ottawa had a heartwarming tribute video from Adzija, and Boston was happy to reunite with their former teammate. Ottawa was also hosting its first-ever pride night, it was a big night for everyone.

Shortly after the opening puck drop, Boston captain Hilary Knight gets her team on the board with a pass from Hannah Brandt after the puck sneaks by Ottawa goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer.

It was a very even matchup and a lot of back-and-forth from both teams. Almost halfway through the first, this game is tied again after Ottawa captain Brianne Jenner slips it by Aerin Frankel off a pass from Natalie Snodgrass.

It was a quiet second period with no goals on the board, Boston led the second period in shots with 6 against Ottawa’s 4 shots. In the final period, Gabbie Hughes tied this game up off a feed from Emily Clark, and Boston was found in a tough position.

This game went to overtime, and Boston had control over the puck for the majority of the time, but it wasn’t enough for either team as this game went to a shootout. Ottawa came out on top of the shootout and took this game with a final score of 3-2 in SO. Here is a recap of the shootout:

Round one: Mrasova and Brandt converted their shots.

Round two: Roese and Brandt missed their shots.

Round three: Watts and Knight missed their shots.

Round four: Jenner and Rattray missed their shots.

Round five: Mrasova converted on her second shot, and Knight missed on her second shot.

This game put Ottawa ahead big time. A regulation win against Montreal on Saturday will put them in the playoffs. This game put Boston in a bad situation, they can still make the playoffs but it seems unlikely at this moment.
