(@PWHL_Minnesota/X)Abigail Boreen scored her first goal of the season with 2:04 left in overtime to give Minnesota a 2-1 Professional Women’s Hockey League victory over host New York on Sunday in Bridgeport, Conn.
Kelly Pannek’s shot was deflected by New York goaltender Abigail Levy but Boreen — a reserve to begin the season who was activated on Wednesday — tapped in the winner.
Abby Cook scored her first goal of the season with 4:13 left in the first period to give Minnesota a 1-0 lead. Kendall Coyne Schofield’s centring pass to Pannek on the rush was off the mark but Schofield went behind the net and regained control of the puck. As the New York defence settled in, Schofield dropped it to Cook, who scored on a wrist shot from just inside the blue line.
Levy finished with a season-high 35 saves for New York (2-1-1-4).
Minnesota, which lost 4-3 in overtime at Boston on Saturday, had lost back-to-back games.
Minnesota (3-2-2-1) lost the first matchup between the teams on Jan. 14. Minnesota led 2-0 at the end of the first period but New York scored goals in the second and third before Emma Woods netted the winner in overtime.
