It took five games, but Caroline Ouellette finally made history - again.
The Montreal forward scored her 131st goal against the Boston Blades at the Larsen Skating Rink in the Mike Eruzione Center on Sunday afternoon.
The goal was scored at even strength at 14:30 of the first period. It was assisted by Emmanuelle Blais. The goal gave Montreal a 3-0 lead.
She had been tied with Jayna Hefford at 130 goals since January 28, 2017 in a game against the Brampton Thunder. She had gone seven regular season goals and three playoff games without scoring. She has eight assists in that span.
Ouellette’s teammate Noémie Marin is at 129 career goals (she also scored in the first period) and the two players could conceivably go back and forth until the end of the season.
Ouellette was the first CWHL player to reach 300 career points, reaching the milestone last season.
After Les Canadiennes finish the game in Boston, they head on their Olympic break. They then have their trip to China before finishing the regular season at home on March 10 and 11 against the Calgary Inferno.
