Minnesota Whitecaps at Metropolitan Riveters at Prudential Center at 2 p.m. eastern - Twitter Game of the Week

For the second season in a row, the Riveters’ home opener is in the Big Rink, aka the Prudential Center. This is the second NWHL game in an NHL rink and the first of two this season.

The game is a rematch of opening weekend. The Riveters have had a rough start going 0-3-0. Teams seem to have goaltender Katie Fitzgerald’s number given how many goals they’ve scored. The defending Isobel Cup champions have been playing with a new coach and an incomplete lineup, but this rough start might hurt them in the short NWHL season.

After a scary moment last weekend, Erica Ayala reported that Madison Packer was back on the ice during practice Thursday night.

The poor Whale got a tough draw for the first two weeks in the Buffalo Beauts. This week might not prove any relief as the Pride looked like a new team compared to last season. The Whale are still on the hunt for their first goal as well. Who will it be?

Toronto Furies at Worcester Blades in Worcester at 3 p.m. eastern - CWHL Watch

The Furies got their first win of the season on Wednesday night when they had a midweek faceoff against KRS Vanke Rays. The Blades have split their goaltenders time thus far, with their new goalies playing the first half of each of last weekend’s games and veteran Lauren Dahm getting the back half. Jessica Convery, who started Sunday, was voted the CWHL Goalie of the Week.

Markham Thunder at Les Canadiennes de Montreal in Montreal at 6 p.m. eastern

The Thunder struck early against the Blades, winning their first two games. Montreal will be their first real test of the season, especially considering Les Canadiennes’ use of an unconventional use of four forwards and one defender.
