Canada 0 Usa 2

Canada’s National Women’s Team lost its first game to the U.S. since before the Olympics, as the Americans captured a 2-0 win in round robin play on Thursday at the 2003 4 Nations Cup.

The best scoring chance early on came shorthanded, as Jayna Hefford chipped the puck past the U.S. defence, went in all alone but was stymied by U.S. goaltender Pam Dreyer, who was facing Canada for the first time ever.
USA had it’s own great chance, as Katie King had a point blank chance, but Sami Jo Small kicked out her right leg for a great toe save to keep things scoreless through the first period.

U.S. finally got onto the scoreboard as Katie King pushed a rebound past Small at 13:36 to give the Americans a 1-0 lead, which they maintained through the end of the middle frame. A second U.S. goal came on an errant pass by goaltender Small, which Natalie Darwitz intercepted and turned into a 2-0 lead. Canada ran into some penalty trouble in the final minutes, and U.S. skated off with a 2-0 win.

Canada gets on off day on Friday, and then wraps up the round robin against Finland on Saturday, November 7th.
