Raty is no stranger to big games, having played at the University of Minnesota.

And the speedy left-winger has had quite an impact so far.

"Against Canada in the first game, we scored the first goal so we got the momentum and you get that confidence", said Raty. Canadian goalie Shannon Szabados was again spectacular, making 23 saves for her second shutout of the tournament.

Harss made a pair of spectacular stops that made the crowd gasp in the first period and kept her team within two goals in the opening period. Potomak tipped the shot, jumped on the rebound and "just popped it in the back of the net", as she put it.

"We didn't get the start we wanted to get", Raty said. "We wanted to play with a lot of energy, get a lot of pucks on net and shift-after-shift put pressure on them".

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - They are the best rivalry in women's sports right now, a perennial grudge match that exceeds anything the U.S. Olympic soccer or basketball teams have going when it comes to longevity or emotion or reliable high-stakes drama. Pfalzer played for the USA U18 Select team as a 16 year old in 2009, before joining the USA U18 World Championship team for two years in 2010 and 2011 - both years as assistant captain.

"But if you're down 2-0, 3-0, of course it's huge for them".

Poulin's sharp-angled wrist shot from close range popped the water bottle off Finland's net behind Raty at 6:07.

Sara Sakkinen and Linda Valimaki scored in the first period, and Jenni Hiirikoski made it 3-0 with a goal early in the second.

The U.S. routed surprise semifinalist Germany 11-0 on Thursday night, and Canada tore by Finland 4-0 earlier in the day to continue an awesome streak - the two countries have now played each other in all 18 world championship finals since the tournament began in 1990.

He also said that talking to her is like "a form of art" and believes that "there's nothing to not love about her". When she found out Chris Evans had feelings for her, she somehow thought it was a prank.

"We have not won anything", Mustonen said.

One of those new names is Sarah Potomak.

They were scoreless on six power-play chances, while Canada went 1-for-4. "A great player. She's gotten a couple goals this tournament, which is really nice to see". And those now playing at the college level-on rosters for the 2016-17 season-have scored 20 goals.

USA Hockey looked like it tried to break the unified front of American women, trying to find lower-caliber players to take their spots in the world championship if Plan B became necessary.

"Even from before the drop of the puck, our girls were ready to go and ignited", head coach Laura Schuler said.

The American women have also run the table of titles this Olympic quadrennial since falling 3-2 in overtime to Canada in the gold-medal game of the 2014 Olympics.

They completed the turnaround by beating the Czech side 3-1 today, consigning their opponents to relegation in the process. "It's been easy to play with them, for sure". Hilary Knight, Kelli Stack and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson each got a goal and two assists. "It's was pretty. I don't know if it got deflected but it counts just the same as all the pretty ones". "I think these games really come down to heart and passion, who's going to have the most".

"She's one of the best goalies in the world, so you're not going to score on her from the blue line".

It also was the fourth time in the last six gold medal games of the Women's World Championship that the US and Canada have gone to overtime.
