Maschmeyer and Jenner star as Ottawa beats Minnesota 4-0

Minnesota’s best chance to get back into the game came early in the third when they had a 24-second lead with two players but were unable to capitalize on it or the ensuing power play.

Jenner made it rain and scored her third at 15:39 of the third period, hitting a shot over Hensley.

A solid second period allowed Ottawa to extend its lead to 3-0.

Jenner scored her second of the match at 4:07. Minnesota’s Maggie Flaherty fell behind the net, allowing Emily Clark to jump on the puck and feed Jenner in front.

Midway through the period, Ottawa broke in with a 2-on-1, with Tereza Vanisova making a great pass under Flaherty’s stick to Bell, who scored in the open end.

Despite being shut down for much of the period, Ottawa came out of the first inning with a 1-0 lead.

Maschmeyer made some big saves to save her teammates as they struggled to keep up with Minnesota. Ottawa didn’t register its first shot until 10:07 a.m.

The home side got a break when Hensley went to play the puck behind the net and it took a weird bounce off the boards between her feet to bounce forward, leaving a wide open net for Jenner to score her sixth of the season at 17 :14 hours. .
