After a review, officials decided Haley Irwin kicked in the puck and ruled no goal midway through the period.

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.

One of the keys when you're overwhelming favourites to make it to the gold-medal game is not take your eye off the ball in the preliminary round.

One of the most storied rivalries in sport has only gained in intensity in recent years. She scored two goals only six seconds a part in the second period, marking the fastest two goals ever scored in Olympic hockey history.

Key events for the US during Thursday's coverage of the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics include snowboarding and figure skating, both of which feature some of Team USA's top athletes.

Canada finished second to the United States in that event, but has not lost to the Americans since, beating their opponents in five straight games.

- Speedskating: The women's 1,000 meters will be a key event to watch as reigning world champion Heather Bergsma represents the USA (5 a.m.; finals live starting at 8 p.m.). "It's going to take everybody, whether it's their first Olympics or their fourth; we started this mission back in August and we need to keep it going".

"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.

The women's tournament continues Monday and Tuesday with each team playing again.
