Excitement is building among fans of the Professional Women’s Hockey League’s Boston team, as the team prepares for Game 5 of the first-ever league finals Wednesday.

Boston will face off against Minnesota tonight at 7 p.m. at the Tsongas arena in Lowell, looking to become the first team ever to hoist the Walter Cup.

Tickets are sold out for tonight’s game, and anyone who is looking to get one last minute will have to pay between $200 and $2,000 on the secondary market.

It marks a big moment for the team and for women’s sports in the greater Boston area, said Rev. Laura Everett, who runs the blog Boston Women’s Sports.

“I think we need a bigger stadium,” Everett told GBH Morning Edition co-host Paris Alston. “It’s a great sign of how much enthusiasm there is for women’s sports across the region.”

During Game 4 in Minnesota Sunday, Boston won 1-0 in double overtime.

“Boston has an incredibly packed team,” Everett said.

Some people she will be keeping an eye on include Captain Hilary Knight, who also plays for the U.S. women’s national team; Forward Susanna Tapani, who has drawn reporters from her native Finland to Boston for the game; Jamie Lee Rattray, whom Everett called an “incredible, essential player,” and Loren Gabel, who played for Clarkson University.

Everett is also looking forward to seeing soalie Aerin Frankel.

“Folks have taken to calling her the Green Monster. She’s got some of the highest save percentages in the league,” Everett said.

Tonight’s game comes after a thrilling women’s March Madness in which women’s games garnered record viewership, and Caitlin Clark’s WNBA debut, which averaged 2.1 million viewers.

Everett said this moment in professional women’s sports has been a long time coming, a consequence of Title IX.

“This is also, unfortunately, a consequence of artificial market suppression,” she said. “There are so many women who have been playing so long, but really haven’t received all of the investment and support. … Leagues, investors, the infrastructure just hasn’t been there.”

The popularity of these games shows that there is a market for professional women’s sports, she said.

“We’re really seeing that there is an audience, there are players, there are fans, and there are people willing to pay good money to watch an excellent product,” she said. “The demand is there for all of this. I think investors should be getting in right now.”
