πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Canada 3-2 United States πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ (OT)
Rivalry Series, Game 3
Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, Victoria πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦
Monday, 03 February 2020

Brigette Lacquette tied it on the power play with 6:48 left and Victoria Bach won it 3:22 into overtime, giving Canada’s National Women’s Team a 3-2 extra-time victory over the United States in Game 3 of the Rivalry Series on Monday night.

After dropping the first two games in December, Canada kept its hopes of a series win alive with a come-from-behind triumph in the 152nd meeting between the long-time rivals.

Blayre Turnbull put in the work in the overtime winner, racing down the left wing and slipping a centring pass to Bach, who tucked a backhand through U.S. goaltender Nicole Hensley.

Bach has scored four career goals with Team Canada, all against the United States and all in a span of five games this season.

Brianne Jenner had the other goal for Canada and added an assist.

Ann-RenΓ©e Desbiens posted the win between the pipes, making 20 saves.

Down by a goal with time ticking away, the Canadians took advantage of penalty trouble by the U.S.; just as the first half of a two-man advantage expired, Lacquette gathered the rebound off a blocked shot and let go a shot that hit an American stick and eluded Hensley to tie the game.

After a scoreless first period that was not short on chances – Turnbull had a sure goal taken away by a sliding Megan Keller in the crease late in the opening frame – both teams converted on special teams in the second.

Jenner opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal five-and-a-half minutes in; all alone on a breakaway, the puck rolled off her stick but still found its way past Hensley.

Hilary Knight tied it less than seven minutes later on a U.S. power play, hammering a slap shot short side on Desbiens.

Savannah Harmon gave the Americans their first lead early in the third period when she jumped in off the blue-line and snapped a shot past Desbiens, but the Canadian comeback was on from there.

The series makes its final Canadian stop Wednesday night in Vancouver before it heads south for the finale Sunday in Anaheim, Calif.
