BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Who says Buffalo has a professional sports curse? 

Sunday, the Buffalo Beauts of the National Women's Hockey League (NWHL) won the Isobel Cup, the NWHL version of the Stanley Cup, with a 3-2 win over the Boston Pride. 

The Beauts came out firing and took a 3-0 lead heading into the third period. But Boston stormed back in the final frame scoring two to make it 3-2.

But a big reason Buffalo held on was goaltender Brianne McLaughlin who made 60 saves in the including 22 in the third period.
