US women's hockey team breezes past Finland, will play for gold

Сборная Швейцарии уничтожила хозяев Олимпиады &ndash 8:0

The United States secured its place in its third straight gold medal game with a victory over Finland in the semifinals on Monday.

Canada outshot Russian Federation 47-14 but struggled to pull away, scoring just once in each of the first two periods before Wakefield bounced one in off goalie Valeria Tarakanova's right arm just two minutes into the third and then Emily Clark made it 4-0 just 31 seconds later.

Four years ago when the games wrapped up in Sochi, fans were most likely expecting to see their favorite National Hockey League players in Pyeongchang.

Knight, Lamoureux-Davidson and Gigi Martin also scored for the USA women, who dominated Finland from the start. Just before the two-man advantage expired, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson lit the lamp to stretch USA's lead to three, and 34 seconds after that, Hilary Knight found twine to truly bury Finland. However, the USA will likely be rolling with 20-year-old, and Olympic first-timer, Maddie Rooney in net against veteran Canadian netminder Shannon Szabados.

We had a preview of this matchup on February 14th when Canada got away with a 2-1 win after being outshot 45-23 by Team USA in a preliminary-round game at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Canada-U.S. matchups are always heated, but the Olympics seem to elevate the rivalry from mere appointment-television to the kind of game people tell future generations about.

Norway, Finland and Germany all advanced past the round-robin stage and will have a chance to play for a medal with a victory in the quarterfinals. Lamoureux-Davidson said this year's team is far more laid back, taking time with their families and watching other Olympic events between games.

In women's hockey, the United State will be trying to win its first gold medal since 1998. The Americans will have to be at their best to best Canada, and here are a handful of things Team USA needs to do to win on Wednesday.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) - Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were golden in their final Olympic performance. Poulin made it 2-0 in the second - still closer than anyone expected.

Knight is one of six Americans who will get a third opportunity to win the gold. They jumped just ahead of American teammates Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donahue, who finished fourth.

"We're enjoying this experience a lot more than Sochi", she said.

"Sometimes the puck isn't going to bounce your way, and obviously you need to get back up and keep chomping at it if you're still hungry for it".

Canada is the four-time Olympic champion and has won the past five games against the U.S. The Canadians figure a hard-fought game is likely. "This team is full passion and energy and excitement".

Raty, who works with young players in Minnesota, said, "There's a lot more coming". The Canadians responded with a personal-best 122.40 points and a record 206.07 total, pushing them just past their French rivals' overall score of 205.28. "I can't forget the first game - the moment they stepped onto the ice".
