Too much. Fun. Fun. These are the words that have been used to describe what will happen on Tuesday night. And, yes, it will be all that and more because the 2021 IIHF International Women’s World Cup comes in handy in one of the biggest hockey competitions: Canada and the United States at the gold medal. Write it up.
“I am very proud of this team and this team and we have worked hard to get to where we are and to where we want to be.
The American people will do this when they come under the rule of Canadians early 5-1.
“We got out of the game. Instead, we never played our game and I think that’s what got it wrong,” USA CEO Kendall Coyne Schofield said.
And don’t expect the Americans to come out again. The last time the two teams met at the grand prize was the 2018 Winter Olympics, which saw the United States win 3-2 in a stunning draw – and in that competition, USA Hockey lost for the first time 2-1 to Canada.
Canada enters the final of the top six games – yes, they have not lost a single game – and hopes to prevent Americans from winning the sixth gold medal in the women’s category. This will be the 19th time the two teams will meet in a gold medal, with Canada winning 10 times. They did not play in 2019, as Canada were disappointed in the final with Finland.
Several players return to Canada’s frustrated team, including captains Marie-Philip Poulin and Mélodie Daoust, who lead the tournament with 12 points (six goals and six assists). She and linemates Natalie Spooner (nine points) and Sarah Fillier (five points) have been increasingly involved in Canadian cases. On the US side, Hilary Knight has recorded one record with four top goals and six points. He’s built by Grace Zumwinkle – who makes him – at the top of America’s leading board in goals; He also links Zumwinkle and Lee Stecklein to the point.
It is almost a decade since Canada last won gold in the worlds (2012). Will they win a major prize, or will the Americans continue to do so? Much is on the line – not just gold – as the sport sows seeds for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
