Boston’s Alina Muller attempted to spark a much-needed rally in the second period by slicing New York’s lead in half, however, that follow-up came far too late. Muller’s second-period goal was one of just three shots logged by Boston in the fame, signaling an offense that remained stagnant heading into the third period until Sophie Shirley refused to waive the surrender flag.

That turned what looked to be a near-sealed deal by New York into a nail-biting comeback bid from Boston.

Boston went after New York goalie Corinne Schroeder in a picture-perfect power play opportunity with less than three minutes remaining in regulation. But that proved to be the final chance, which Boston failed to capitalize on. The net was left empty by Boston with 1:08 left to play, and nothing came of it, sending the team right back to the loss column.

— New York’s Jade Downie-Landry netted the game-decider in the third period.

Boston will have almost a month off as they next host PWHL Toronto on April 18 at Tsongas Center at 7 p.m. ET. You can watch all the action live on NESN+.
