Canada Defeats USA's Women's Team in First of Two Games in Saskatchewan
October 6, 2005

REGINA, SK – Canada’s Women’s Olympic centralized team defeated Team USA 3-2 in Regina on Thursday night, the first of two games in Saskatchewan.

Canada opened the scoring with a breakaway goal when Canadian forward Jennifer Botterill slipped a backhand shot between the legs of the USA goaltender with 35 seconds remaining in the opening period. 

The second period had a similar ending, this time the USA scored a goal in the waning minutes of the period as defenseman Courtney Kennedy blasted a point shot past a screened Kim St-Pierre to tie things up a 1-1.

USA’s Katie King scored on a backhand beating St-Pierre up high on the short side 47 seconds into the third period to give the USA a 2-1 lead. But just as a Canadian 5-on-3 power play had expired, Danielle Goyette tapped one in at the side of the net for her 99th career international goal, and tied the game at 2-2.

Just over two minutes later Canada regained the lead, much to the delight of the hometown crowd as Dana Antal from Esterhazy, SK snuck one under the crossbar on a shot that deflected off a USA defenseman which turned out to be the game winner.

Kim St-Pierre made 29 saves in the Canadian victory, but is was Dana Antal who took home the player of the game honours for Canada. Katie King was named player of the game for the USA.   

Canada will face the USA at 12 noon CT on Saturday, October 8th at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon before returning back to Calgary. This game will also be broadcast live on TSN/RDS, the official broadcaster of Hockey Canada (check local listings).
