Jade Downie-Landry’s 3-point night pushes PWHL New York past Boston

Jade Downie-Landry scored two power-play goals and added an assist, and New York beat Boston 3-2 on Monday night to snap a seven-game losing streak.

It was the first regulation win on home ice for New York (3-4-3-9), which last beat Montreal in a shootout on Feb. 21 — also at UBS Arena. New York has just six points in eight home games, including five points in four games at UBS Arena.

Boston (4-4-2-9) won its first four road games of the season but has lost the last five.

All three goals by New York came on power plays. Downie-Landry deflected in a shot early in the second period to open the scoring. A little more than three minutes later, Downie-Landry set up Elizabeth Giguere, who slipped the puck behind Aerin Frankel for a 2-0 lead.
