Photoessay: Boston Pride hoist the Isobel Cup

Before Game Two of the Isobel Cup Finals, NWHL Commissioner Dani Rylan unveiled the Isobel Cup, the newest trophy in women’s hockey. Fewer than three hours later, she awarded the Cup to the Boston Pride, who swept the Finals in two games thanks to an heroic effort from Brianna Decker and the rest of the Pride players, all of whom showed up in great force.

Relive the win and the night in photographic form.
