On Friday, Jessica Campbell (Melville, Sask./Pursuit of Excellence, Midget AAA) and Jillian Saulnier (Halifax, N.S./Toronto, PWHL) scored two goals each in the third period as Canada blanked Germany for the second time in six days. Campbell and Saulnier each added assists for three-point games, while Caitlin MacDonald (Winnipeg, Man./University of Manitoba, CIS) had a goal and two assists and Cassandra Poudrier (Lachenaie, Que./Laurentides, Midget AA) had three helpers.
