Six for the Six! Toronto takes top seed in the NWHL Bubble Tournament with a HUGE win over Connecticut

This round robin game between the Connecticut Whale, coached by former Toronto Maple Leaf enforcer Colton Orr, and the Toronto Six was an interesting competition to say the least. To set the stage: the Whale had a few days off after a rejig in the schedule occurred due to the Metropolitan Riveters having to drop out of the tournament due to COVID-19-related health concerns. Conversely, the Six had to play just the night before in their first round robin game against the previously undefeated Minnesota Whitecaps; I say previously as the Six were able to squeeze out a great win to take that unbeaten title away from the Whitecaps.
The round robin will determine the seeding for the playoffs which will be on Thursday February 4th and the final for the Isobel Cup on Friday February 5th, so tonight’s game was an important one for Toronto to win.
