Canadian hockey women battle past US

Gints Meija Wojtek Wolski

Kendall Coyne breathed life into the United States cause 23 seconds into the third period on a breakaway goal, skating past four defenders and beating Lacasse. "We had a lot of shots on net and a lot of opportunities, some loose pucks on the net in scrums, a few inches off in a lot of them, so we've just got to find a way to get those goals". "How we can generate more and eliminate chances against us".

Canada and the United States are the only countries to ever win gold at the Olympics. They will play the winners of the quarter-finals which will be played on February 16 between Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

Switzerland played a better third period and outshot Canada 29-28 overall.

All of which adds another layer of intrigue to this rivalry.

Canada, which has won the teams' last five Olympic matchups, found fault in its performance, although it gave up only Kendall Coyne's goal 23 seconds into the third period.

Canada played Sweden later in the day. I think we're going to work our butts off.

After a scoreless first period, Canada struck twice in the second and Lacasse stoned Lamoureux-Davidson late in the period. Canada has also beaten OAR and Finland these Olympics. Lacasse deflected Lamoureux-Davidson's penalty-shot attempt wide.

"We have to keep getting better", Desjardins said.

"It kind of just grew from: 'OK, I can feel my hands and feet?"

Agosta elbowed a US defender in the face less than a minute later, but the Canadians killed off the penalty.

Top cheese refers to a shot to the top of the hockey net, and Gino is a term for a goal. Rooney got a piece of Agosta's shot, but not enough to prevent the goal.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of women's hockey at the Olympics.

Rachel Homan and her Ottawa rink dropped to 0-3 in the women's curling tournament with a 9-8 extra-end loss to Denmark on Friday.

The five-goal outburst was welcome but was complemented by some solid play in their own end, particularly an ability by the Canadian defencemen to move the puck up ice easily.

"So I'm hoping we get back to the team that's ready to go and play hard again".

Bourque played on the first line centred by Roy and with Gilbert Brule on the other wing and said while he didn't want to put too much stock into one game, there was plenty to build on.

That means Team USA and Canada can entirely skip the next round of games, the quarterfinals.

One player who needs a breakout: Star Hilary Knight, who has been uncharacteristically quiet so far through three preliminary games.

Ann-Renee Desbiens posted an 18-save shutout against Russian Federation in her Olympic debut Sunday.

"Everybody knows Canada is a very good team", Swiss forward Vincent Praplan said following Canada's 5-1 win on Thursday.

The Olympic Games have followed the same pattern since women's hockey made its debut at the 1998 Games in Nagano.

Slovakia is next, in a game that starts at 10:10 p.m. ET on Thursday.

"Throughout the year, we actually have made sure with our game times and our practice times that we varied them", Schuler said.
