Staturday with Mike, 11/26
- The Boston Pride haven’t allowed a goal in 178 minutes and 46 seconds of hockey. Bray Ketchum’s first period goal on October 22nd is the most recent goal that Boston has allowed.
- The Connecticut Whale haven’t scored a goal in 120 minutes and 9 seconds of hockey. Their last goal was an empty netter by Kelly Babstock on October 23rd in Buffalo.
- Haley Skarupa hasn’t scored a goal or registered in assist in two games, but her nine points are still leading the NWHL (she is now tied with Alex Carpenter).
- Kelley Steadman has played in just three of the Beauts’ seven games this season but she leads her team in points (with seven) and is tied with Corrine Buie for the team lead in goals (with four).
- Connecticut is the only NWHL team without a player over 5’9”. New York Riveters’ captain Ashley Johnston is the tallest professional female hockey player in North America. She stands at 6’0”./
- There is currently a four-way tie for the league-lead in power play assists between Marie-Philip Poulin, Jess Jones, Erin Ambrose and Natalie Spooner.
- The Toronto Furies have not lost in regulation in five straight games. They are the only team to beat Les Canadiennes this season. They did it twice last weekend.
- Boston Blades’ rookie goaltender Lauren Dahm has faced an average of 0.73 shots per minute so far this season.
- Les Canadiennes have the best power play in the CWHL by a wide margin. Their penalty kill isn’t bad either: Montreal and Toronto are tied for the best PK percentage in the league at 88.9 percent.
- Only five of the Boston Blades’ 25 skaters are left-handed. They are, by far, the most right-handed team in the CWHL./
