Boston Hockey is engrained in the city’s culture. The Beanpot tournament is a major part of the college hockey experience in Boston. From pee wee to Prfessional Boston is one of the best Hockey towns in the country. And while the Boston Bruins have been on a league wide tear this year, There is another hockey team in Boston that has also been wrecking teams and that’s the Boston Pride of the Premier Hockey Federation (Formerly the NWHL.)
The Pride just started the second half of their season when they beat the Connecticut Whale 5-2 on Sunday. Boston is at the top of the league with 40 points with 14 wins and have a +36 point differential which is 16 points higher than 2nd place Toronto.
The Pride have a league leader in almost every stat. Forward Loren Gabel has the most goals and assists and is tied with teammate Elizabeth Giguere for most assists.
It is very clear that the Pride have the best team in the league as it stands. They are coming off of a 2nd straight Isobel Cup and became the first team to win back-to-back finals and the first team to three championships. With Boston looking like a threat to three-peat it is safe to say that Boston has cemented itself as the class of the PHF.
The Pride look to continue their Dominance against PHF’s newest team, the Montreal Force on the 18th who have had a tough season. They are 6-9-1 and 6th in the standings. The force have beaten the Pride earlier in the season but lost their second meeting making the season series 1-1.
Lauren Gabel looks to keep her impressive season going when the Boston Pride hosts the Montreal Force at the Warrior Ice Arena in Boston at 8pm or you can watch it on ESPN+.
