The NWHL will complete its 2021 season March 26-27 in Boston live on NBCSN.

The 2021 Isobel Cup Playoffs were suspended last month after a rise in COVID-19 cases and two teams pulling out before the schedule’s completion.

Beginning March 26 at Warrior Ice Arena in Brighton, Mass., the top-seeded Toronto Six will take on the No. 4 seed Boston Price at 5 p.m. ET. At 8 p.m. ET, the No. 2 seeded Minnesota Whitecaps will play the No. 3 seed Connecticut Whale. In addition to live coverage on NBCSN, live coverage will stream exclusively on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.

The winners of the two semifinals will play for the Isobel Cup on March 27 at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN and the NBC Sports app.

According to the league, the games will also be streamed “on Twitch in Canada and other international markets.”

As part of NBC Sports’ exclusive coverage, On Her Turf – NBC Sports’ Female Empowerment brand – will be integrated into Isobel Cup Semifinal and Final coverage on NBCSN as well as across content on NBC Sports’ social and digital channels leading up to and during the games.

No fans will be in attendance and daily COVID-19 testing will take place for all players and staff members. All four teams will stay in separate hotels.

“We didn’t raise the cup,” said NWHL commissioner Ty Tumminia last month announcing the season suspension. “I also will say it doesn’t mean we’re not going to raise the cup for season six.”

Now they’ll get that opportunity with the Whitecaps looking to win their second Isobel Cup in a row.
