The CWHL was founded by players and members of the community in 2007 and had six franchises, including one based in Shenzhen, China, which was independent.

Edwards’ 28 3s in 4 games a tournament record| ESPN

The Purdue Boilermakers failed to make it to the Final Four as they lost to the Virginia Cavaliers, but their junior guard Carsen Edwards put his name into the record books. Edwards hit 10 triples to break the record for three-pointers in an NCAA tournament, making 28 triples in four games. The previous record stood for 30 years and it was set by the Michigan Wolverines Glen Rice, who had 27. Still, Edwards’ 42 points didn’t help Purdue to make it to the Final Four.

“Just had a good rhythm, felt good for me, a lot of shots I took felt good for me,” Edwards said. “Just didn’t turn out the way that we wanted it to, but for the most part it felt good.”

Ovechkin contributed with a goal in the third period of the Capitals’ 6-3 road win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, while he added 51st just less than two minutes later.

“I’ve had a couple of chances in previous years to score 50, but I didn’t,” Ovechkin said. ”You always want to do something special, obviously, but sometimes it’s hard. I’m happy to get it done.”
