Sunday's Dump & Chase: Four More Weeks

New, comments

Slightly less than a month from now, the regular season will be over. The Central division has yet to be decided in any way, although Nashville has somewhat staked out its position in the first wild card spot. Elsewhere in hockey, the Boston Pride have won the very first season of the NWHL, taking home the Isobel Cup. Congrats to them!
