Team Canada fell to Team USA 7-3 at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan on Sunday afternoon. Canada remains winless vs. Team USA this season (0-7) but still have the upper hand on the all-time record (27-21-0)

Canada jumped out to an early lead after Dana Antal stole the puck from Julie Chu and scored shorthanded on a breakaway at the 5:27 mark. Team USA replied with five straight goals to take a 5-1 lead into the dressing room.

In the second period, Canada closed the gap with two goals in a 53 second span. Kelly Bechard’s fourth goal of the season and Cassie Campbell’s third made the score 5-3. Natalie Darwitz, after coming out of the penalty box, scored a breakaway goal to give the Americans a 6-3 lead heading into the third period.

Team USA added another goal in the third period to make the final score 7-3. Tammy Lee Shewchuk was named Canada’s player-of-the-game, while Shelley Looney took the honours for Team USA.

Sami Jo Small, who was pulled at the 16:45 mark of the first period, took the loss for Canada, stopping 13 of 17 shots. Kim St-Pierre, who replaced Small stopped 15 of 18 shots she faced.

Today’s game was Lori Dupuis’ 100th all-time game as a member of Canada’s National Women’s Team.

Both teams will now travel to Vancouver, BC for the “Final Faceoff” on Tuesday, when they will face each other for the last time before the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah.
