GANGNEUNG, Korea, Republic Of - Laura Schuler is keeping everyone guessing about her goaltending.
United States coach Robb Stauber was pleased with his team's 45-23 shots edge and aggressive attitude.
It was the second goal at PyeongChang Games for Agosta, who is on leave from her job as a Vancouver Police officer to play for Canada.
After a scoreless first period Thursday, Canada's Meghan Agosta scored a power-play goal at 7:18 and Sarah Nurse followed even-strength at 14:51. Stauber said he was happy with outshooting an opponent almost 2-to-1 for a third straight time in these games, believing a goalie will break under the flurry.
Canada's second goal came just seven minutes later as Sarah Nurse sent the puck flying past the US goaltender Maddie Rooney. That's not what we're here for.

"It hit another level compared to our game previous", Nurse said. Lamoureux-Davidson, who scored the fastest back-to-back goals in Olympic history in the US win over Russian Federation, went too slow and Lacasse easily deflected her backhand shot. "I just kept the puck in front me". "(She) pulled it through her legs, tried to do something fancy and I just watched it and pushed over and made the save. Brianne Decker hit two posts, the second in the final seconds, before the two rivals ended up in a scrum. "I don't think we can give them all those shots". "We'll spend the next couple of days here looking at video and seeing where those areas are". "Obviously you always want to eliminate shots against".
"We're trying to learn the ice and see the tendencies, and we just had a few too many misses", said Canada second Joanne Courtney.
The Olympic hockey schedule has all teams, men's and women's, starting games at varied hours.
"Throughout the year, we actually have made sure with our game times and our practice times that we varied them", Schuler said.
