U.S. EDGES CANADA IN BATTLE OF SPECIAL TEAMS AT 4 NATIONS CUP

JEMMA YOUNG

TAMPA, Fla. – Eighteen minor penalties — seven against Canada’s National Women’s Team — tested the Canadians' special teams as it fell 4-2 to the United States on Wednesday at the 2017 4 Nations Cup.

Canada was able to fight off four shorthanded shifts, but the American power play proved strong, scoring three times with the man-advantage - once per period.

After Cayla Barnes started the scoring on the PP, the U.S. would add an even-strength goal from Megan Bozek with just over two minutes remaining in the first to send Canada into the intermission down 2-0.

Unsuccessful on its first five power plays, Canada finally converted three minutes into the second period when Rebecca Johnston (Sudbury, Ont./Calgary, CWHL) cut the American lead in half; she raced down the right side before cutting to the middle and sliding the puck past American netminder Maddie Rooney.

Canada started the final period on the penalty kill, and Kendall Coyne restored the two-goal American advantage just 50 seconds into the stanza.

Meghan Agosta (Ruthven, Ont.) would net a shorthanded goal with 4:21 left to pull Canada back within one, but Alex Carpenter scored on the same power play just 28 seconds later to finish off the scoring.

In all, Canada finished 1-for-11 on the power play, while the Americans made good on three of their seven chances.

Canadian puck-stopper Ann-Renée Desbiens (La Malbaie, Que./University of Wisconsin, WCHA) was busy in a 26-save performance, with half coming in the opening 20 minutes.

The Canadians finish the preliminary round Friday when they take on Finland (3 p.m. ET/noon PT).
