Olympics alert: Canada defeats United States in women's hockey prelim

They will need it, because the Americans were a terror. five-foot-two winger Kendall Coyne scored the lone USA goal on a rush that looked like Pavel Bure as much as anything, slicing through four Canadian jerseys like scissors through fabric and beating Genevieve Lacasse five-hole.

Both the US and Canada had already booked berths in Monday's semifinals, having won their first two games in Pool A.

Next up, the USA faces Slovakia in the second preliminary-round matchup on Friday before taking on Athletes of Russian Federation on Saturday.

"They came at us", Granato said.

In the 2010 Vancouver Games, the Canadians used a pair of goals by Marie-Philip Poulin to beat the US 2-0. Canada faces the victor of OAR and Switzerland, while Team USA plays the victor of Sweden and Finland. "Maybe I have an advantage now as someone who scores on them".

"We buried the chances we had", said winger Meghan Agosta, who scored Canada's first goal off a sparkling no-look pass from Natalie Spooner on a second-period power play, and is now Canada's second-leading Olympic goal scorer of all time. 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.
