The Canadian Women’s hockey team now sits at the top of Group A after a match where they were completely outplayed. The Canadian women found itself outshot and at moments, outplayed as the U.S. women kept pushing for the win. Excellent performances from goalie Desbiens, captain Poulin, and defenders Laroque played a huge role in earning a 4-2 victory.
Ann-Renee Desbiens, goaltender for Canada stopped 51 shots and was vital in keeping the match close. The U.S. women got off to a very quick start and had the Canadians pinned in their own zone for over a minute and a half. The U.S. dominance really tested Canada’s defence, which has had little action in the prior matches.
After the match, Desbiens said “It actually didn’t feel too bad… I guess in the first period, yes it did. We had a lot of defensive zone time, but in the second and third we were able to get it out more often. My defence, my forwards, did a good job of pushing rebounds to the corner and those things allowed me to breathe.”
