Lacasse helps Canadian women's hockey team edge U.S. in Pyeongchang

In the 2014 Sochi Games, the Americans lost in heartbreaking fashion.

Gary D'Amato of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted the 2006 Games were the only time the Americans and Canadians didn't play for gold at a major tournament since the start of the IIHF Women's World Championship in 1990 and the start of women's hockey in the Olympics in 1998.

"We wait for that moment", captain Marie-Philip Poulin said after the win.

"We've been preparing for this tournament for four years", said Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, a three-time Olympian. "We'll bring the exact same emotion the next game". Veteran Meghan Agosta got things started just 35 seconds into the game, depositing the puck past Raty after taking a ideal two-on-one pass from Melodie Daoust.

If history is any indication, the game served as an appetizer before the main event, a gold medal final on February 22.

The US have now dropped five straight matches to the Canadians, getting outscored 11-4 in that span despite outshooting them 166-132.

A medal wasn't at stake, but nothing is ever meaningless when Team USA faces archrival Canada in women's hockey, especially on this grand stage. The Olympics only raises the stakes.

"We're going to worry about the things that we think are going to give us the best chance of winning and that's the kind of performance we had tonight".

South Korea agrees to pay North's Olympic expenses
Kim emphasized the importance of continuing dialogue between two Koreas, according to the North's official news agency. However, he also noted that the US would not be letting up sanctions until North Korea pursues denuclearization .

"It's a rivalry, what would anyone else expect but exactly that", said USA coach Rob Stauber.

With Canada's 4-1 win over Sweden in a pre-tournament contest Monday in Pyeongchang, the preliminaries are finally over for the men's Olympic hockey team.

"We gotta bury our chances", said United States forward Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, who set an Olympic record on Tuesday for the shortest span between goals by the same player - six seconds - against the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation.

"I do like where our team's at", said Schuler. "So excited to play".

Genevieve Lacasse's 44 saves in a 2-1 win over the United States on Thursday helped the Canadians go undefeated in their three Pool A games.

Charline Labonté recorded the shutout in her first Olympic game. -Canada a "great rivalry". It isn't that they don't want to play. "So the importance of us making sure that we're staying connected and playing defensive hockey first before heading down the other end". Once we hit the ice, it's going to be a fun game. The puck was placed perfectly by the Canadian, but Rooney was slow to react on the play that went up and over her shoulder. It took until the second period for someone to break through: Meghan Agosta's power-play goal staked Canada to a 1-0 lead until Sarah Nurse's snipe doubled it minutes later. Finland and OAR, teams that were expected to showcase their recent growth in PyeongChang, unfortunately, came up short.

Shannon Szabados is as familiar with that Canadian attack so the Edmonton native was hardly surprised at what that prolific offence did to Raty and the Finns in another decisive win for the four-time defending champions.

While his players are clearly frustrated, coach Robb Stauber felt his team will soon start scoring more. "We know that opponent very well".
