PWHL Montreal forward Laura Stacey potted the game-winning goal to lift Montreal to a 2-1 overtime victory against Boston at Tsongas Center on Sunday afternoon.

Boston, which defeated Montreal 3-2 in overtime earlier this season, had its two-game win streak snapped and owns a 4-2-1 record. First-place Montreal maintains its positioning atop the standings at 6-1-2.

Montreal netminder Elaine Chulie, who won each of her first two starts this season, stayed unbeaten between the pipes and all but stole one for Montreal. Boston played with plenty of energy in the third period after it had a pair of power plays in the second period. But Boston had trouble slipping one past Chulie, who stopped 23 of the 24 shots she faced in regulation including a number Grade-A chances for the hosts.

Boston never led in the contest as Montreal took 1-0 lead on Erin Ambrose’s backhanded tally with four minutes left in the first period. Ambrose added the game-winning assist, too, concluding the 3-on-3 overtime period.

— Chulie wasn’t the only netminder to step up in the contest as Boston goaltender Aerin Frankel, appearing in her fifth game of the season, stopped 26 of the 27 shots she faced in regulation. With five minutes left, Frankel came away with a clutch save as Stacey sped up the ice in transition.

— Ambrose finished with a pair of points, sliding a perfect pass as Stacey stood at the back post.

— Boston forward Jamie Lee Rattray played with plenty of energy and led the team in the exciting full-length game. Rattray sounded one off the post just after Sophie Shirley tied the game 1-1 with just under 16 minutes remaining. Rattray would have given the hosts a one-goal advantage should she had converted.
