The Clarkson Cup, the CWHL (Canadian Womens Hockey League) championship, won by the U.S-based Boston Blades, with a 5-2 victory over the Montreal Stars.

...as happy as Blades players and staff were to win the Clarkson Cup, CWHL brass were just as pleased at the steps forward the league has taken. In addition to the crowd in attendance, Canadian sports TV giant TSN broadcast the game, and rink board advertising and corporate support grew again.

...CWHL players will be paid a living wage anytime soon, but step by step, they are building the infrastructure for future generations to better appreciate women's hockey... they're already succeeding: a large portion of the crowd was comprised of young female players and participation in the women's game has never been better.


"We're laying a good foundation for the years that are ahead," Andress said. "We're branding for the kids and the community, so all the money involved goes back into the sport.

"I think it's going to be great," Murphy said. "I don't really think the U.S. knows a lot about women's hockey and when we come back and show them we were on TSN, that we won this whole league, they're going to be intrigued by it."
