Before we round out with a quick look ahead at our weekend coverage, let’s hop over and see what the PWHPA has been up to.

Plus, of course, an awesome shoutout to the historic all-women’s on-air broadcast crew for last night’s Raptors-Nuggets game:

Now, as we have mentioned a few times, the Isobel Cup playoffs startΒ tomorrow. We will have your live tweets during the Toronto Six game(s), post-game recaps, and access to the team’s post-game media calls as well. Following the weekend, we will have a retrospective on the Toronto Six season for you. Check back here, TLN Twitter, or Mer’s Twitter for all the action!

 

Happy Women’s Hockeying!
