Ottawa extends New York’s league-high losing streak to seven games with 3-0 victory in PWHL

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Captain Brianne Jenner had a goal and an assist to help Ottawa extended New York’s league-high losing streak to seven games with a 3-0 victory on Wednesday night in the Professional Women’s Hockey League.

Ottawa (6-0-6-6) moved ahead of Boston for fourth place and the final playoff spot — with six games to play.

Ottawa has won four times on the road to total 15 points in 10 games. New York (2-4-3-9) has just one win in seven home games.

Daryl Watts scored her fifth goal of the season to give Ottawa a 1-0 lead with 2:29 left in the first period. Jenner intercepted a pass deep in New York’s zone and made a quick pass to Kateřina Mrázová, who sent it in front to Watts.

Jenner made it 2-0 late in the third with her fourth goal of the season. Jenner’s centering pass was deflected back to her and she split three defenders with a shot that got past Abigail Levy.

Emily Clark added an empty netter, also her fourth of the season, with 1:02 left.

Emerance Maschmeyer had a 26-save shutout.

New York had two minutes of a 5-on-3 advantage in the third period but could not take advantage.
