The game we’ve all been waiting for, and expecting to see. Neither team had any problems in their preliminary games.
Canada won all three preliminary games before dispatching the Olympic Athletes from Russia handily in the semifinal. They are currently led in scoring by a Mélodie Daoust, a player some questioned including on the roster. There is question on who will start in net for Canada with two top options in Genvieve Lacasse and Shannon Szabados to pick from.
The prime focus of this game, especially from the Boston perspective, will be BU alumnus Marie-Philip Poulin who has beaten the US the past two Olympics.
The United States had some trouble with quality starts unitl their semifinal rematch against Finland which was a dominant performance from the get go. After losing 2-1 to Canada despite outshooting them by almost double. After exploding against Finland Dani Cameranesi leads the team in scoring. The starter for the game will be Maddie Rooney.
Most of this team has played in Boston at one point in their careers, either on one of the pro teams or a college team. While there are five Boston College Eagles, the biggest scoring threat for the US is former Northeastern Husky Kendall Coyne who is currently skating on the top line.
