It will play in its fifth Olympic final against the victor of the Canada-Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation game, which is later Monday.

Canada's women's hockey team was fine with a feisty finish in its semifinal win over the Russians at the Winter Olympics.

Such a predictable conclusion to the tournament has plenty of critics, a voice that found even more ammunition on Monday when it was announced that the women's tournament will be expanded by two to 10 teams for the 2022 Games in China.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Hilary Knight had a goal apiece as they turned a 5-on-3 into two goals 34 seconds apart in the second.

After Canada scored once and pulled its goalie, a puck shot the length of the ice by a US forward skidded toward the empty net and hit the post. "And to really suffer that downfall on such a big stage, with all the energy and the eyes of the country are on you, is huge". It's the game you've been dreaming of. They won Olympic gold in 2010 at Vancouver and silver four years later in Sochi. "It's going to be heated".

"There's been some other plays that haven't been put into question, and so I can't imagine that there would be any disciplinary action just based on other things that have been let go", Duggan said. "It's best on best, and that's what the Olympics are for".

With the US leading 2-0 late in regulation, Brianne Jenner scored with 3:26 remaining.

Jennifer Wakefield scored her first two goals in South Korea against OAR, which lost 5-0 to Canada to open the tournament. Maddie Rooney made 14 saves for the shutout. "The time it takes to get to this point. the amount of work and the sacrifices".

Gigi Marvin started the scoring. While the American women's hockey team won't make up the medal difference singlehanded, its pursuit of a first hockey gold in two decades is something worth cheering for. They know when women's hockey was first contested at the 1998 Olympics, the United States topped Canada.
