PWHL Toronto lost both games – and the presumptive league MVP – in Minnesota this week in the PWHL semifinals after Minnesota won Game 4 1-0 in double overtime. The Game 5 decider is in Toronto on Friday night with Boston waiting in the wings.

Kristen Campbell and Maddie Rooney had dueling shutouts after regulation, making huge saves on both ends to keep the game scoreless. Campbell was amazing, but allowed one goal on 29 shots, while Rooney was less busy, stopping all 19 shots she faced.
