Earlier this morning, Joe Grav brought us a preview of this weekend's NCAA Division 1 Women's Hockey Quarterfinals. Despite 3 local teams competing, all are going away to do it. However, there is an option for those of us that want to see some women's hockey this weekend.

The Boston Blades of the CWHL (Canadian Women's Hockey League, the highest level of pro play for women that don't sign in Europe for whatever reason) have their last home games of the season this weekend. Here are the details:

  • March 15, 2014 vs. Toronto Furies @ Merrimack College, 7:35pm
  • March 16, 2014 vs. Toronto Furies @ Merrimack College, 1:35pm

It's as good a chance as any to root for some of the members of the Olympic team. Here's the full season roster, but to give you a better idea of who you might be seeing this weekend, here's the individual player stat section of the boxscore for the Blades' 5-1 win over Montreal: (links go to player's page on the Blades' site)

Definitely some names to see live in there. And Toronto, of course, has some goons (32 PIMs between 2 players in a single game!). Should be fun.
