The Buffalo Beauts have won their past two games with an exciting comeback win against the Minnesota Whitecaps and convincing victory over the Connecticut Whale. The Beauts are off this weekend and currently hold second place in the NWHL, but will that last? Victory Press and NWHL reporter Melissa Burgess spoke with WBFO’s Nick Lippa about that and the yet to be announced upcoming NWHL all-star game.

The NWHL’s second place team, the Buffalo Beauts, had mixed results this past weekend winning a game against Connecticut and losing one to the still undefeated Boston Pride. It was their first action in nearly a month. This upcoming weekend they face the league’s third place team, the Minnesota Whitecaps, for two games. WBFO’s Nick Lippa spoke with forward-defense Ashley Birdsall and goaltender Tiffany Tsu about how the season is going and discussed their incredible journeys to play professional hockey.

The Buffalo Beauts hit the road to face off against the Boston Pride for a pair of games this weekend. The Beauts started off the season last Saturday with a win in Connecticut. Victory Press and women’s hockey reporter Melissa Burgess thinks the Beauts are looking good so far with an almost entirely new roster, but may face a tough challenge against Boston. She spoke with WBFO’s Nick Lippa about that, the new arena, the new way the NWHL is broadcasting their games this year and much more.

The Buffalo Beauts open their season in Connecticut this weekend after an offseason that brought many changes. Over 200 women players are boycotting North American hockey this year leading to a mostly new roster and the Beauts are no longer calling Harborcenter their home. But players like Corinne Buie and Sara Bustad are optimistic the team and the brand of professional women’s hockey will continue to grow. They spoke with WBFO’s Nick Lippa.

NWHL

More than 200 women last week said they would boycott the upcoming NWHL season for multiple reasons including a lack of resources. Now, Pegula Sports and Entertainment says it will no longer operate the Buffalo Beauts moving forward. WBFO's Nick Lippa spoke to NWHL and Victory Press writer Melissa Burgess about what's next for the league.

NWHL

Hundreds of the world's best women hockey players have said they will not compete in North America this upcoming year until they "get the resources that professional hockey demands and deserves." This could threaten not only the upcoming Buffalo Beauts season, but the NWHL itself.
