Boston's still-unnamed squad came close to winning it all in the first-ever championship game for the new Professional Women's Hockey League.

The decisive Game 5 of the final series took place at the local team's home rink at the Tsongas Center in Lowell.

  • PWHL Minnesota beat Boston 3-0 last night to take home the Walter Cup.
  • Boston goalie Aerin Frankel made 41 saves to give the team a fighting chance.

Tickets were going for nearly $200 the day before the game at the sold-out 6,500-seat arena.

  • New Englanders got to watch the game live on NESN last night.

Catch up quick: The series was almost over Tuesday, when Minnesota came close to winning in double overtime, but had their game-winning goal overturned.

What's next: They'll be back next season and are expected to get an actual name this August.
