Lamoureuxs spark U.S. win over Finland

Lamoureuxs spark U.S. win over Finland

"To win, we don't need a miracle", said Granato, who was 15 when Herb Brooks' team upset the Soviets and went on to win the gold medal. Goaltender Raty stopped her first backhander but Lamoureux-Morando put the rebound past her.

Canada has 23 former National Hockey League players and the USA 16, down to Norway and South Korea with two and Slovenia one.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, 28, of Grand Forks, N.D. set up the first US goal midway through the first period, then she scored an Olympic record two goals in six seconds during the second period when Team USA out-shot Russian Federation 24-7.

The women's game was first introduced at the Olympics in 1998 in Nagano, Japan.

Kendell Coyne added a power-play goal 2 minutes, 31 seconds later and Dani Cameranesi iced it with an empty-netter in the third. I do believe that it revealed from the very first phase. However, the USA created Raty Operate.

USA Hockey selected five players from the KHL, four from college and a host of guys who play professionally in Europe and the American Hockey League. Goaltender Noora Räty did very well keeping them in the game, stopping all but two of the shots she saw. A number of teams probably like their chances.

Live televised coverage of the Team USA and Team Canada first-round Group A finale on Wednesday, Feb. 14 is set for 8 p.m. on NBCSN.




Finland had eyes on medaling in this year's competiton but had to face both North American powerhouses in its first two games of the 2018 Winter Games. "Finland's really gotten better over the last couple years, and they gave us one heck of a game".

Even the US roster has a lot of global knowledge, however, for several, the introduction match has been that the recognition of the lifelong fantasy.

Subsequent to the back objectives, the Americans nonetheless needed to skate by way of a stressed final 30minutes into the ultimate buzzer. There are some future stars to watch as well, headlined by University of Denver forward Troy Terry, who was Team USA's hero at the 2017 World Junior Championship. Finland out-shot that the US 10-8 at the next stage, however 20-year-old Maddie Rooney, that appeared since the rookie out of the trio of all goalies on the roster, was impenetrable if she'd to become.

Although U.S. men's Olympic hockey coach Tony Granato was inspired to learn about and play global hockey after he watched the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" U.S. team prevail at the Lake Placid Games, he said his motivational tactics haven't included showing his own players the popular movie that was made about that gold-medal team.

"We've got a lot of talent", he said.

"We hope to build off this game when we play Russian Federation".
