Forward Kendall Coyne had a standout game for Team USA against Finland, as she netted the eventual game-winning goal for the Americans and looked deadly all game with her speed. In their last four pre-Olympic worldwide friendlies, all against arch-rival Canada, the Americans scored just three goals, and head coach Robb Stauber knew that was an issue coming into the tournament. However, Venla Hovi slid from the puck with only 5.8 minutes left until the rest to place the people in America powering in the very first intermission. The United States topped Canada to win that initial gold medal, but their northern neighbors have triumphed in each since.
Despite surrendering an early goal, the US won the territorial battle throughout the game.
Finland's goaltender Noora Raty, widely regarded as one of the best individual players in the tournament, made 39 saves and did as much as possible to keep her team within striking distance.
"The aim would be to score more goals than those and that I feel that the means to complete it's by simply placing pucks around the internet", Coyne explained. Canada is favored to win. And yes, the Finns are the IIHF's No. 3-ranked team in the world. If you want to watch this one live, you'll need a case of Olympic insomnia, as the game airs at 2:40am on February 13th.
