Toronto Beats Boston For 2014 Clarkson Cup
The Clarkson Cup - the Stanley Cup of professional women's hockey - was won by the Toronto Furies on the weekend.
In an exciting 1-0 overtime win the Toronto Furies won the Canadian Women’s Hockey League championship game over the Boston Blades.
Britni Smith scored just 33 seconds into the extra period to defeat the defending champions from Boston. For Toronto it is their first Clarkson Cup championship.
The game was played before a standing-room only crowd at Markham, Ontario's Centennial Arena.
Toronto was a surprise finalist after defeating the number-one ranked, three-time Clarkson Cup champion Montreal Stars on Friday in the round-robin's lone shootout. The Blades were undefeated in the round robin with an impressive 3-0 record, allowing just four goals against in the entire tournament.
