Four Nations Cup Preliminary Round
Mile One Centre, St. John’s ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
Tuesday, 09 November 2010

Hilary Knight of the United States scored the only goal in the shootout, edging out the Canadians 3-2 at the Mile One Centre on the opening day of the 4 Nations Cup.

The Americans both closed and open the scoring at Tuesday night’s game, as just 11 seconds into the first period, American Jenny Potter (nรฉe Schmidgall) scored after a dump-in that bounced the puck off the boards in front of a wide open net. Jocelyne Lamoureux assisted the goal. There were three penalties in the first period, with the United States sent to the box once and Canada serving two. Canada pestered and peppered U.S. goaltender Jessie Vetter in the final seconds of the period, but they came up empty-handed by the intermission.

The second period started with Canada’s golden goal scorer, Marie-Philip Poulin, tipping one past Vetter at 2:07 on the power play, with help from Caroline Ouellette and Tessa Bonhomme.

Meghan Duggan gave the United States the lead once more at 10:18, taking a feed from Caitlin Cahow. At 12:36 in the period, with nine seconds left on the power play, Jocelyne Larocqueย  and Haley Irwin assisted Meaghan Mikkelson to make it even at two goals apiece. Team U.S.A. received four penalties, while officials handed Canada two offences. Before the second was up, American netminder Jessie Vetter mad some huge saves, denying a couple of Canadian breakaways.

The third period was action-packed but scoreless, sending the Olympic gold medal rematch into sudden victory four-on-four overtime. The Canadians spent most of OT in the offensive zone, but once again they couldn’t put the puck past Vetter.

Canada’s Poulin hit the post with in the shootout, while Megan Agosta and Jennifer Wakefield were both denied by Vetter. Hilary Knight scored on Shannon Szabados for the win.

There was no surprise for Team U.S.A.’s player of the game, with Vetter receiving the honour after stopping 34 shots in regulation. Mikkelson was named player of the game for Canada.

Canada’s National Women’s Team travels to Clarenville on Wednesday to take on Sweden.
