Women's hockey: Montreal could play in front of another record crowd

The Montreal team from the Professional Women's Hockey League (LPHF) will have the opportunity to have another meeting in a National League arena as they travel to Scotiabank Arena to face Toronto on February 16th.

Head coach Kori Cheverie's team will put skates on the Maple Leafs' ice. If the fight – dubbed “Battle on Bay Street” – sells out, a new LPHF brand will be established. The current maximum attendance for a match is 13,316 spectators, the total recorded for the Montreal club's visit to Minnesota on January 6th. The local favorite won 3-0 at the Xcel Energy Center, home of the Wild.
