The Details:

Who: The Boston Pride commence a weekend of back-to-back games by hosting the New York Riveters

Where: Warrior Ice Arena, Boston, MA

When: Saturday, March 3rd, at 6:30 pm

 

The Rundown:

Saturday may well serve as a preview of a potential Isobel Cup Final matchup, as the number one seed team hosts the number two seed team in what is expected to be a “riveting” matchup. The Pride come into Saturday fresh off a 5-4 victory last Friday over the Connecticut Whale, in which the Pride achieved an impressive comeback thanks to a goal and three assists put up by team co-captain Brianna Decker.

The Riveters themselves staged an historic comeback against the Whale two weeks ago, recovering from a 5-2 deficit in the third period to bring the game to overtime and come out on top 6-5, with Janine Weber scoring the game winning goal.

 

Featured Players:

Most recently named NWHL Player of the Week, Brianna Decker is known as both a prolific goal scorer and crafty playmaker and has been a key reason for the Pride’s undefeated streak this entire season. She has recorded 10 goals and 11 assist for 21 points in 14 games this season (2nd place in NWHL scoring behind rookie teammate Alex Carpenter). Pride netminder Lauren Slebodnick leads all NWHL goaltenders in GAA (1.26) and save percentage (.938) in five games played, while NWHL All-Star goaltender Brittany Ott sits second in those categories and leads the league in shutouts (3)

For the Riveters, it has been no surprise that the return of Amanda Kessel, who has notched 15 points (2g, 13a) in 6 games, has led to her team’s rejuvenated play and recent three-game winning streak. Her presence has had a ripple effect on her teammates as well, most notably forward Janine Weber, who currently sits at fourth in the league in points 19 (9g-10a). Riveters goalie Katie Fitzgerald has stood tall in net for her team and has gone 7-3-2 against teams not named the Boston Pride.
