United States women's hockey team defeats Finland 3-1 in Olympic opener

Noah Ferguson | 11 February, 2018, 17:36

Goaltender Noora Raty saw Hilary Knight with the puck on her stick and moved to defend against the risky American. Kendall Coyne gave the US the lead when she scored on a one-timer during a power play, off assists from Hilary Knight and Brianna Decker. "We have a job to get done", she said. "So for once she actually passed, and hats off to Coyner". They also improved to 7-0 against Finland in the Olympics, though the world's third-ranked team made the defending world champions work hard in a chippy game.

The top-seeded Americans gave up a goal to Finland forward Venla Hovi - who lives in Winnipeg, Canada, and plays for the University of Manitoba - with only 5.8 seconds remaining in the first period.

"You would like to come out and score a whole bunch more, but as Finland does, they play very tough", U.S. Coach Robb Stauber told Reuters. "It didn't. It brings a level awareness to what we've talked about".

The Finns, who came into the game 0-6 against the U.S.in Olympic play, stunned the Americans by taking a 1-0 lead with time almost expired in the first period.

It was Monique's 14th-career Olympic point and Jocelyne's 12th.

"We had a pretty good first period we just had a mental lapse on the play, we were in real good position, we just didn't pick up the most risky player", Stauber said.

Kendall Coyne notched what would be the winning goal in the second period.

Kendell Coyne added a power-play goal 2 minutes, 31 seconds later and Dani Cameranesi iced it with an empty-netter in the third.

Stauber had not tipped his hand before game day on which of three Olympic rookies he would put in net. At age 44, she officially became the oldest player to compete in women's Olympic hockey.

"That's just a huge game for her and a huge game for our team", Stauber said.
