After the first seven skaters failed to score in the shootout, Anchorage’s Zoe Hickel proved to have the magic touch.

She also proved to have a wicked wrister, too

Hickel’s shootout goal proved to be the difference as the Boston Pride beat the New York Riveters 3-2 in Newark, New Jersey.

The win extended Boston’s eight-game winning streak to open the National Women’s Hockey League.

Boston is the league’s reigning Isobel Cup champion.
