PWHL Minnesota lifts Walter Cup as league's first champion with Game 5 win over Boston

LOWELL, MASS. – The six teams of the Professional Women's Hockey League still don't have nicknames. Wednesday, in the final game of its inaugural season, PWHL Minnesota earned one.

You can call them champions now, after a 3-0 victory over Boston delivered the first Walter Cup to the State of Hockey. Two days after a wrenching double-overtime loss in Game 4, Minnesota went on the road and finished the job in Game 5 at Tsongas Center. Liz Schepers scored in the second period, and Michela Cava and Kendall Coyne Schofield added goals in the third to give Minnesotans - at long last - a purple-clad champ.

"Our team battled every game," Cava said. "We all grinded it out and stuck together. I'm proud of everyone. It's been an amazing journey."
