ST. PAUL, Minn. — Women’s professional playoff hockey comes to the Xcel Energy Center on Monday.

The game will serve as the first PWHL playoff game at the Xcel Energy Center. PWHL Minnesota needs a win to keep their season alive as the team is down 0-2 in the best of five series with Toronto.

Minnesota was also shut out in its first two games against Toronto.

The team’s general manager Natalie Darwitz said all they need is that first goal and some help from the State of Hockey.

“The fan base has been huge and has played a major role in our success at home,” she said. “And we hope that we have a great turnout and that the fans understand and support us that we need their help. Everything at this point would help our players play even better. So yeah, you know, the state of hockey never disappoints, so we’re hoping for a great turnout.

Minnesota defeated Toronto once in the regular season.

Tickets are still available for Monday’s match from €25. Fans will receive a rally towel during the match.

The pick-up time is at 7:00 PM. The doors to the Xcel Energy Center open at 6 p.m
