Results: Women's hockey - Team USA vs. Finland

The only two teams ever to win Olympic gold medals in women's ice hockey opened their 2018 tournaments with wins on Sunday, with Canada grinding down the Russians 5-0 and the USA edging past Finland 3-1.

"To be behind in the first period is not a position we're used to being in a ton. Let's go out there and get this game". Finland out-shot Team USA 10-8 in the final period, but Rooney kept the Finns off the scoreboard. A pair of goals within three minutes put the front for good. Hilary Knight passed to Kendall Coyne, who put a one-timer top shelf from the edge of the right circle. Just like that, the swarming Americans had swung the game. "We're going to be tough to beat if we get pucks to the net and hunt down pucks and rebounds".

"I don't think we were pressing or anything like that", Lamoureux-Morando said.

Stateside, one of the most anticipated events of these Games is the gold-medal final between the USA and Canada. They're heavily favored to at least reach the gold medal game, having won three straight World Championships since falling short in Sochi four years ago.

Well, the US (and Canada, for that matter) would be wise not to look too far ahead.

Noora Raty. That's what happened. But the US made Raty work.

"The one thing I thought we could do was get more pucks to the net", Stauber said.

Finland's goaltender Noora Raty, widely regarded as one of the best individual players in the tournament, made 39 saves and did as much as possible to keep her team within striking distance. And yes, the Finns are the IIHF's No. 3-ranked team in the world.

While the Olympic stage always brings pressure, neither side's path to the gold-medal game would have been crushed by a loss.

The U.S. came into the game with a scoring problem.

The win brings the US into a tie with Canada (three points each) atop the Group A standings, with Finland and the Olympics Athletes from Russian Federation at the bottom with one loss each.

Ice Hockey - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women Preliminary Round Match - Finland v U.S. - Gangneung Hockey Centre, Gangneung, South Korea - February 11, 2018 - Madeline Rooney and Sidney Morin of the action with Emma Nuutinen of Finland. With the Finnish and US flags hanging from the ceiling over one end of the rink, occasional chants of "U-S-A" from the 4,015 fans in attendance and the Olympic rings lining the boards, some jitters are understandable. Two-time Olympian Rebecca Johnston from Cornell University scored two goals for Canada, as did Melodie Daoust from McGill University. Finland outshot the USA 10-8 in the third frame, but 20-year-old Maddie Rooney, who emerged as the starter from a trio of goalies on the roster, was impenetrable when she had to be. Their third goal would come as a result of an empty net (Dani Cameranesi) with 13 seconds left in the third period.

Not the most earthshaking news of the day.
