Team Canada dropped a 3-1 decision to Team USA at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday afternoon. The loss drops Canada’s 2001-2002 record to 11-6.

In the first period, Krissy Wendell put Team USA up 1-0 with her first goal of the game at the 3:44 mark, taking advantage of a Canadian miscue by goaltender Kim St-Pierre. Wendell grabbed a loose puck and put it into an empty Canadian net. The period ended with Canada down by a goal.

The Canadians rebounded in the second after Jayna Hefford took a feed from Vicky Sunohara and scored her fourth goal of the season on a breakaway at 3:11. Hefford went from her forehand to her backhand and then put the puck in with one hand, to even things up at 1-1. Team USA regained the lead on Wendell’s second goal of the game at 9:53. Canada went to the dressing room trailing 2-1.

Team USA used an early third period power play to take a 3-1 lead thanks to Natalie Darwitz’s goal at the 1:36 mark. Darwitz’s goal finished the scoring for the game, as Canada fell to Team USA 3-1.

Vicky Sunohara played today in her 100th all-time game with Canada’s National Women’s team.

St-Pierre took the loss for Canada, stopping 32 of 35 shots. She was also named Canada’s player-of-the-game. Krissy Wendell took the honours for the Americans.

Both teams will travel to Detroit, Michigan for a 1:00pm (Eastern Time) game Sunday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena.
