Red Star in Race with Inferno and Canadiennes

(Dec. 18, 2017)

With all three standings leaders picking up doubleheader wins, the Calgary Inferno, Les Canadiennes, and Kunlun Red Star pulled away from the rest of the pack to continue a three-way tie atop the CWHL.

The Kunlun Red Star impressed as they welcomed their first American opponent to Shenzhen, China in a doubleheader with the visiting Boston Blades. The Red Star picked up their eighth and ninth consecutive wins, outshooting the Blades 48-11 in an impressive Saturday night win, before also claiming victory in a much tougher Sunday night tilt. Kunlun scoring sensation Kelli Stack took over the CWHL scoring lead, adding three points (2 G, 1 A) from the weekend to her now league-leading 22 points (17 G, 5 A). Fellow forward Shiann Darkangelo also impressed with a Sunday night hat trick for the Red Star. Blades forward Chelsey Goldberg displayed a scoring touch, notching two second period goals in quick succession in Boston’s Saturday night loss, while goaltender Lauren Dahm once again posted a number of spectacular saves, totalling 63 saves in the two-game series.
