Canadian goaltender Scrivens hurt in Olympic quarterfinal against Finland

It will be the fifth time in six editions of the Winter Games that the two nations will face off against each other. It was captain Marie-Philip Poulin who tied it up to force overtime, and then later scored the victor to give Canada a fourth straight Olympic gold medal. After winning the gold in the Women's Hockey in 1998, it seems that the gold has eluded them or that the Canadians are just a better team.

The Americans have taken down Canada in four-straight World Championships, as well as seven of the last eight, but the rivalry won't truly shift in their direction until they can secure Olympic gold. The United Stated outlasted Finland while the Canadians dispatch the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

Faking a backhand Lamoureux-Davidson beat Canada goaltender Shannon Szabados with a forehand on a move she and her twin sister developed as children. Melodie Daoust put Canada ahead on the fourth round of shots but Amanda Kessel pulled the United States level, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.

"We're super excited to be in this position", she said after the USA's victory against Finland. After 20 frightful but scoreless minutes, the gold medal came down to a shootout.

"It's honestly a dream come true, " Knight said. "This is the world's biggest stage". In Sochi 2014 they had the lead, and in the final minutes of play, Canada pulled their goalie. Jennifer Wakefield scored twice and was joined on the scoresheet by Rebecca Johnston, Emily Clark and Poulin. The 20-year-old goalie stopped the last two Canadian shooters in the shootout in Brianne Jenner and then Meghan Agosta on her second attempt.

Canada has won the past four Olympic gold medals for women's ice hockey. "It's a new team, we're ready to go".

"It is always a great match", said Johnston on facing United States of America for gold. "Everyone will give it their all". Now the US is standing tall in the hockey world, the Women's team proving they are indeed the best in the world. Not much more you can say.

During the first period, Team USA's Hilary Knight scored a goal with 25 seconds left in the first quarter. "We communicate really well on the ice", Jocelyne said. "We wanted gold. We didn't get it. Guess it's motivation". We had a couple literally inches away from just putting some in, so we've got to find a way to just get those in the net. Belyakova sneaked past the defense to receive a pass as she crossed over the blue line, then went in on Raty alone to cut the deficit to one goal.

"The one thing that we wanted to make sure of when we came into this tournament is that when it ended we'd be proud of how we represented our country", said coach Tony Granato. "We're confident to stick with what we've been doing and what has gotten us success the last few years".
