LOWELL, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston’s success in the Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) is inspiring the next generation of women’s hockey players.

Boston’s PWHL team will play Minnesota with the Walter Cup on the line on Wednesday night at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, Mass. The series is tied at two games a piece, making for an exciting Game 5 to wrap up the PWHL’s inaugural season.

Tickets for the game are sold out and third-party resellers are charging hundreds for seats.

On Long Pond Road in Plymouth, Mass., it is not uncommon to find young girls playing street hockey. Lauren said the PWHL has struck a chord with the girl's youth hockey movement.

“Spreading the love for the game and sharing that passion has been amazing,” said Lauren.

Denise, who is a mother and former hockey coach, said the future is bright for women’s hockey.

“These girls are staying in it,” said Denise. “They’re excited about it, they’re bringing their sisters, they're bringing their friends and I think it’s just organically growing.”
