The Details:

Who: The Boston Pride vs. The New York Riveters

Where: Barnabas Health Hockey House in Newark, NJ

When: Saturday, January 21st, 2017 at 6:00 PM

 

The Rundown:

The Boston Pride (9-0-0) travel to Newark to face the New York Riveters (4-5-1) for a matchup between the number one and two teams in the NWHL.

Saturday will be the fourth meeting between the teams. The undefeated Pride have obviously won all three of the previous matchups (6-3, 5-1, 3-2), but the Riveters pushed Boston to the brink in their last meeting in Newark, forcing a shootout.

 

Featured Players:

New York Riveters forward and All-Star captain Amanda Kessel will likely make her return to the lineup on Saturday. Kessel has not played an NWHL game since the team's season opener against the Boston Pride in Buffalo, a game in which she was able to notch two assists. The thought of how good the Riveters could be with a player like Kessel in the lineup has fans very excited, as the team has surged in her absence, recording shutouts in their last two games.

Speaking of shutouts, Boston's shutout total matches that of the Riveters at three. One of the biggest parts of the Pride's ability to keep pucks out of their net is goaltender Brittany Ott, who leads NWHL goaltenders with three shutouts. The reigning NWHL Goaltender of the Year winner looks to repeat, as she leads the league in GAA (0.98) and SV% (.960).
