Team USA women's hockey beats Finland

Team USA women's hockey beats Finland

There are three games to enjoy on Tuesday, Feb. 13, with both the United States and Canada getting back in on the action.

The U.S. women's hockey team defeated Finland 3-1 in their first round of play Sunday at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

After a subpar performance against Team Finland, Team USA will look to improve against the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

"The one thing I thought we could do was get more pucks to the net", Stauber said. While it had the effect he was looking for - the USA outshot the Finns 23-5 in the period and outscored them 2-0 - Stauber still wants to see his team get more shots through traffic. We stuck to our game plan. But when your average American sports fan thinks of USA women's hockey, one thought comes to mind: dominance.

Sara Benz and Team Switzerland danced their way to a 3-1 victory against Team Japan Sunday.

To watch the US women play is to see something very unusual if you have ever watched hockey. "They just weren't going in". They're in their own group because people got exhausted of seeing them blow out every other team. Russia's going to have a team with the most National Hockey League experience, when you look at rosters and look at who should do really well. The Dutch created the concept of "total football", in which everyone plays everywhere, attacking in a constant, fluid motion, filling space and moving the ball wherever it exists. "It's exciting for the coaches to get back on the ice and be with this group and we finally get to drop the puck and put another team on the ice in a couple of days".

The new American style is still lovely to watch.

Gionta is known for his speed and quickness.

A qualification game is a game that determines the non-medal places through eighth.

"We don't need to make a movie", Granato laughed.




Megan Keller, a defenseman, beamed when asked to describe how it feels to play this way.

"His commitment, it isn't just - he's not just showing up and, you know, standing on the bench".

The problem is that it's not clear if it's the best way to score goals.

Though the USA has only met Russia once in Olympic play, they have met 13 times in International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship play since 1999.

The U.S. outshot Finland 42-24 and got 23 saves from goalie Maddie Rooney, an Andover native.

All those creative, slashing attacks may be works of art, but the result is often a dead-on battle between an attacker and a goalie who usually has a clear unobstructed view of the puck.

Goaltender Noora Raty saw Hilary Knight with the puck on her stick and moved to defend against the risky American and former University of Wisconsin women's hockey player.

The Americans fell behind late in the first period, when Finland forward Venla Hovi tallied the first goal of the game. "You've got to get tips, screens and deflections".

Russian Federation is always good in hockey.

Chelios is one of the more recognized faces in the team's ice hockey contingent.
