The senior national team completed the 2019 Channel One Cup campaign on a high note, defeating Finland 2-0 at the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg.
Led by a 31-save performance from Alex Cavallini (née Rigsby) and multi-point efforts from Alex Carpenter, Amanda Kessel and Kelly Pannek, the U.S. Women’s National Team defeated Canada, 4-1, tonight in game one of the 2019-20 Rivalry Series at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
The Russians seemed to be cruising to victory when 2-0 up in the first period, but after the Czechs scored three successive goals, the host nation required an equalizer in the third frame to force overtime. SKA Saint Petersburg forward Vladimir E. Tkachyov scored the winning penalty after the teams took the match to a tense shootout.
