Lamoureuxs lead rout of Russia; Finland stuns Canada

"We're just struggling right now".

Nicole Hensley made 18 saves for the United States in a 2-0 win against Canada in the preliminary round of the 2017 IIHF Women's World Championship at USA Hockey Arena 1 in Plymouth, Michigan on Friday. The change paid off as Marvin put the U.S. up, 2-0.

Kendall and Decker each finished with two goals and two assists. I have not been following Team Canada and its exploits closely enough for long enough to be able to say with any authority what all of their mistakes have been over the years and I was not in detail-oriented recap mode while watching. "We were all excited to get out here and get the first game rolling". In order for Canada to miss the bye regardless of the outcome of Tuesday's game, Finland has to beat Team USA.

Did we mention she's a defenseman? "I keep saying it", she said, "but it's true". We have withstood a lot. We can't make tape-to-tape passes.

"We knew we could win". The U.S. beat Canada previous year at the world championship, winning the eight-nation tournament for the third straight time over Canada and sixth time in seven opportunities. The Toronto Furies teammates also played together at Clarkson, where they helped the Golden Knights win the NCAA National Championship in 2014.

The U.S. team then congregated at center ice and hoisted sticks into the air. The players earned $6,000 in the six months leading up to the Olympics. "We did start to have those discussions in December".

Head coach Pasi Mustonen seconded that. We're just really struggling right now. "That is actually more important than those points we got today, is the mental part of the game". "Any time you play the USA, it's a big battle and you want to win".

"Us older players, we've known it's close, but we've just been close", Raty said.

Also on Saturday, Team Canada goes up against Team Finland at 7:30pm EST.

FILE - In this Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016, file photo, National Women's Hockey League All-Star players take time for a "selfie" before an all-star game at Harborcenter in Buffalo, N.Y. In just its first year, the upstart USA -based NWHL beat its longer-established, Canadian-based counterpart to the punch by paying its players this season.

"It was there", Johnston said of the chances the Canadians had in the third, including on a power play after Poulin was hauled down in front.

Canadian coach Laura Schuler was blunt afterward that she expected more from her team: "I don't think we had confidence with the puck tonight".

Canada has yet to hear its own national anthem after a game here, and this was not the bounce-back game they were looking for.

The men, most of whom make millions playing professionally, are part of the national program only for the two weeks it takes to play in the Olympics or World Championships, so they are compensated differently, making comparisons hard. "I think there's a potential here to take this team and have it be followed similar to other women's sports and where they're at right now". I'm certainly proud to be someone standing up for women's hockey and really trying to get it to move forward. And while the top-ranked Americans have won more world titles overall - including seven of the last nine - Canada has won all but one of the gold medals awarded since women's hockey was added to the Olympics in 1998. This is so much bigger than Girls in the Game. "This is all stuff that we know, we just gotta climb outta that hole, one step at a time". The net came off several more times in the first period, but the issue seemed to have been fixed between first and second periods.
