SAN JOSE, CA -- Canada's Women's Olympic Hockey Team returned to Calgary on Wednesday after losing 4-3 in overtime to Team USA before the largest crowd ever to see a women's hockey game in the United States at the San Jose Arena on Tuesday night.

Katie King's second goal of the game at 3:22 of the extra period was the gamewinner for Team USA before a crowd of 7,784 fans. Tara Mounsey had tied the game 3-3 when her slap shot beat Canadian goalie Manon Rheaume of Charlesbourg, QC with just eight seconds remaining in regulation time during a U.S. power play.

Jayna Hefford of Kingston, ON, had given Canada a 3-2 lead at 19:10 of the third period when she scored the second of her two goals. Nancy Drolet of Drummondville scored the other goal for Canada, while Karen Bye, who opened the scoring at 5:54 of the first period, was the other goalscorer for Team USA.

The two teams will face-off again on Monday, Jan. 26 at the Saddledome in Calgary, the send-off game for Team Canada. They will also play in Colorado Springs, CO on Jan. 28 in the official send-off game for Team USA. Team Canada departs for Japan on Jan. 30 and opens the first-ever women's ice hockey tournament at the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano on Feb. 8 against Japan.

Team Canada head coach Shannon Miller also announced that Sami Jo Small of Winnipeg, MB will serve as Team Canada's emergency goaltender during the 1998 Winter Games. Small would be available to play if either of Team Canada's goalies -- Lesley Reddon of Fredericton, NB or Rhéaume -- were to suffer a tournament- ending injury. Once a goalie has been replaced at the Olympic tournament for an emergency medical reason, she is not eligible to return.

Karen Nystrom of Scarborough is expected to return to action on Monday at the Saddledome. Nystrom, who returned to Calgary following Canada's 2-1 victory over Team USA in Vancouver on Jan. 16, underwent a bone scan on Tuesday, which proved negative. She is being treated for a foot infection.
