The biggest rivalry in women's hockey is set for another chapter

21 February 2018

It's part of the routine now, as much a staple of the Winter Games as the medal ceremonies, the doping scandals or the sequins on the figure skating costumes.

Although the US and Canada have met on every final except at the 2006 Turin Olympics, the Americans have not had gold hung around their necks since the Nagano Games with the Canadians occupying top spot on the podium ever since.

"I think it's awesome on the world's biggest stage for everybody to watch two powerhouses go at it", Schuler said.

Whether Schuler goes with the tried and tested Szabados or opts for Lacasse, Canada's goaltender should be a key figure in Canada's fortunes Thursday when faced with the quick and creative US forwards. The Canadians have won gold at the past four Olympics.

"It always is (chippy)", said Canada's Rebecca Johnston. "We can feel that we have a lot of people pulling for us". The Canadians have won 24 in a row at the Olympics since losing the gold medal game in 1998.

Congress MLA's son assualt a man at Bengluru restaurant, absconding
He said a Bharatiya Janata Party MP's son was also seen in the footage but was not named an accused. Nalapad surrendered at the Cubbon Park police station on Monday, after hiding for over a day.

And they know that the world championships have been staged 18 times since 1990, and the United States and Canada have faced each other for gold exactly 18 times (with Canada winning 10 of them).

Canada outshot Russian Federation 47-14 but struggled to pull away, scoring just once in each of the first two periods before Wakefield bounced one in off goalie Valeria Tarakanova just two minutes into the third.

Now, with another chance at gold, perhaps against a team in Canada that has dogged the Americans in recent Olympics, the ideal for this United States team is to produce a new set of highlights to be played above the ice for years to come. A 5-0 loss to Canada ensured their spot in the third-place game.

The defending champions dominated large stretches of play put could not put another puck by Tarakanova until Marie-Philip Poulin beat the OAR netminder with a neat backhand five minutes into the second.

Canada also beat the Americans 2-1 in the preliminary round in Pyeongchang despite being outshot nearly 2-to-1.

Syrian Observatory: bombing kills 94 in eastern Ghouta in a day
Last week the Eastern Ghouta , home to nearly 400,000 people, received its first aid delivery in nearly three months. The sheer intensity of airstrikes is leveling the city, and killing civilians without any regard or mercy.

Wednesday's game is set for 8 p.m. PST.

Canada looks to win its fifth straight Olympic gold medal in women's hockey at the Pyeongchang Games on Thursday.

Net proceeds from the jersey auctions will be shared between the Hockey Canada Foundation and Canadian Olympic Foundation.

None of it matters, really.

"You literally train four years for this one game and overall we've done the work to get to that game, but the time that it takes to get to this game, the amount of work, the sacrifices by every player, not just the 23 on this roster, but ones who worked hard but didn't quite make it, we're a tight-knit group and this is what we worked for, a chance to play for a gold medal", Monique Lamoureux-Morando said.

Iran Aseman Crash Wreckage Found
