Just the facts

When: Today, 7:00 PM

Where: Mattamy Athletic Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

How to follow: NESN, NESN 360, PWHL YouTube (Out of Market)

Know your enemy

  • Sarah Nurse, Blair Turnbull, Kali Flanagan: Toronto went heavy on Team Canada stars which makes sense with their coaching staff. All of them are capable of a big breakout so Boston will do well to keep them contained.
  • Kristen Campbell, Carly Jackson, Erica Howe: Toronto has some good names in the goalie stable but they have been unable to keep opponents at bay, allowing 14 goals in 4 games. They are due for a big game so we will see if the Boston offense can solve them.

Game notes

  • Boston is the only team so far without a regulation win and currently stand in last place with only 2 points.
  • This is Toronto’s third home game, losing the previous two on a 9-1 aggregate.
  • Toronto won their second game, a rematch at New York (Bridgeport, CT), but have not registered a point since.
  • The league has not published lines yet but we will update this article when they do.
  • We expect to see Emma Soderberg make her debut tonight.
