Marie-Philp Poulin scored the overtime goal for team Canada to beat the United States at the Women’s Hockey World Championship. The last time Canadian women claimed this victory was back in 2012 when they were able to celebrate with a gold medal. Prior to this victory, the United States took the last five world titles in a row.
Poulin the captain scored at 7:22 of 3-on-3 overtime after receiving a pass from Brianne Jenner. Her shot went off the crossbar and into the net but was initially waived off by one of the refs. However, it did not take long for the decision to change and the Canadians were soon jumping on each other in celebration.
The assistant captain Blayre Turnbull actually suffered a leg injury during the celebrations and had to be carried off the ice. She later returned on a stretcher to be with her teammates during the national anthem. Jenner scored a goal and got two assists and Jamie Lee Rattray also scored for Canada. Anne-Renee Desbiens stopped a total of 23 shots for the Canadians.
