Unless they meet in the National Women's Hockey League playoffs, the Buffalo Beauts will not have to worry about facing the Boston Pride again this season.
Boston overcame a 2-0 deficit in the first period and with the help of four power-play goals defeated the Beauts, 7-2, on Sunday afternoon at Northtown Center in Amherst.
It was the seventh straight victory for the Pride over Buffalo this season. Boston (17-0-0) owns a 16-point lead over second-place Minnesota (8-4-2) in the NWHL standings. After their sixth straight loss, the Beauts fell to fourth place in the five-team league with a 6-9-1 record.
Erin Gehen gave Buffalo a 1-0 lead just 30 seconds into Sunday's game and a power-play goal by Marie-Jo Pelletier from Taylor Accursi made it 2-0 at 11:00. Boston scored the game's next seven goals for a sweep of the two-game weekend series here against the Beauts.
Tori Sullivan scored two power-play goals and Lauren Kelly, Carlee Toews, Emily Fluke, Briana Mastel and Mallory Souliotis scored for Boston, which outshot Buffalo, 52-23.
The Beauts will go on the road for two games against the Minnesota Whitecaps on Saturday and Sunday at Tria Rink in St. Paul, Minn.
