Canada fails to cash in on the power play. About five minutes left in regulation, still a one goal game. Rooney flashes the leather with a glove save moments later, Canada's power play is halfway done. No paparazzi, please pic. But this one might be coming back. Natalie Spooner drives wide and centers the puck to Haley Irwin, but it looks like Irwin kicked this puck in. Was it a hockey stop, or did she make a kicking motion?
Huge call to make in a one goal game. Canada still searching for it's first shot of the third. She was wincing on the bench earlier in the game and looked a little slow on her most recent shift.
Another big stop by the veteran netminder. Brianna Decker with a quick shot set up by Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, but Lacasse says no with the glove for her 34th save of the game. USA's Kendall Coyne scores 23 seconds into the third period. The entire complexion of this game just changed thanks to Coyne's blistering speed.
It's a hockey game. Could watch this Kendall Coyne goal replay all day pic. Lacasse has stopped 32 shots, a penalty shot, and faced two power plays through 2 periods.
Only Decker has beaten her, and she hit iron. How many shots has USA had from within a couple of feet of Canada's crease? USA forwards once again going hard to the net in search of the loose puck after it found the iron. Huge chance for USA to steal back some momentum after that missed penalty shot. Huge chance for USA comes up empty.
A Canadian player closed her hand on the puck in the crease in the middle of a dog pile. Canada doesn't like the call, but it's clear from the overhead view it was covered in the crease by the hand of a skater. Sarah Nurse shoots through a screen and beats Maddie Rooney high, it's Canada.
No coach's challenge for the play being offside, it looked like Laura Stacey might have been offsides. But the puck is dropped. What a shot by nursey16 , TeamCanada extends the lead. Another commanding shift from the Knight-Decker-Coyne line. The shots are 24 to 14 in favor of USA, but Canada's lead still stands. She's already made over 20 saves in the game. Meghan Agosta scores on the power play! She buries a no-look backhand pass from Natalie Spooner and makes no mistake.
That is Agosta's 17th career goal in the Olympics. Natalie Spooner with the no-look pass!!! But USA takes their second straight penalty. Canada having some trouble getting out of their own zone early in the second. Canada is unable to generate much of anything with the 38 seconds of power play time they had to start the second. Canada will start the second period with 38 seconds remaining on their power play. USA is shooting itself in the foot with these penalties.
Team USA is 20 minutes away from the Olympic quarterfinals if they can hold on. Offense was firing on all cylinders. That's what they're capable of when able to play their game. Peter Ceresnak cuts the U. It's the first power-play goal scored against the Americans. Slovakia to the power play with 4: Team USA hasn't allowed a power-play goal so far in the tournament 9 for 9.
Mark Arcobello makes it , USA. Troy Terry dishes of the assist from behind the net, his third helper of the game.
It looks like the Americans have finally found their offensive stride. His absence is a huge break for the U. James Wisniewski blasts a rocket from the faceoff dot for his first goal of the Olympics and the Americans have a lead. Cajkovsky is given a match penalty, which results in a five-minute power play for the U. Lots of power-play time coming for the U. They'll start with a 5-on-3 for two minutes. Team USA is on the board! The year-old has scored the last three U.
The Harvard guy puts usahockey up on Slovakia in their elimination game! Slovakia with a great start. Can they keep it up for a full 60? Ryan Zapolski made some big saves, but it's been rebound city. That's not going to fly. Both teams 0 for 1 on the power play to start the game. He collects a turnover in the neutral zone and nearly breaks away, falling to the ice and crashing into Jan Laco before he could get a shot away.
They're 2 for 11 at the Olympics with the man advantage. Both goals came against Slovakia. Winner meets Czech Republic.
