KUORTANE, FINLAND - A late goal by Mai-Lan Lê of Montreal at 19:14 of the third period proved to be the winner Wednesday night as Canada beat Team USA in the first game of the 1998 Women's 3 Nations Cup.

Danielle Goyette of Montreal scored a power play goal at 5:44 of the third period to give Team Canada a 1-0 lead, but Katie King of the USA evened the score at the 16:04 mark of the final period. Canada scored the game winning goal when Lori Dupuis of Cornwall, ON set up National team rookie Mai-Lan Lê for the winner.

Team Canada's roster featured 13 Olympic silver medalists for this first International women's tournament since the 1998 Winter Olympic games in Nagano, Japan.

"It was a great game not only because of the score, but also because the players played with intensity and determination", said Team Canada's head coach, Daniele Sauvageau. "Our game plan was to put pressure on the USA players to create turnovers and provide more opportunities to attack in the offensive zone."

Team Canada fired 31 shots on USA's goaltender Sara DeCosta, while Team Canada's goaltender, Sami Jo Small of Winnipeg turned away 26 of the USA's 27 shots.

"This is a good beginning for the 1998-99 National Women's Team",said Sauvageau. "Our first objective of the season is to bring the intensity to a higher level and allow the players to use their experience and creativity."

Canada's next game is on Saturday, Dec. 12, as they take on Olympic bronze medalists and tournament host, Finland, at 4:00pm (7:00am EST). They will play Team USA again on Dec. 14 and then finish the 3 Nations Cup on Dec. 16 versus Finland.
