Canada Takes The Opener

Canada rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to force overtime, then beat the U.S. in a shootout in the opener of the IIHF Women’s World Championship on Tuesday night in Ottawa.

The game was in pool play and the two teams are still expected to meet for the gold medal  on Tuesday.

Monique Lamoureux scored the first goal of the game, burying a feed from twin sister Jocelyne Lamoureux. Warroad’s Gigi Marvin also assisted on that goal.

In another pool play game, Michelle Karvinen came up big for Finland, scoring a goal and adding an assist in a 2-1 win over Switzerland.

Today, the Lamoureux twins and Karvinen will go head-to-head in a pool play game at 2:30 p.m.
