By | August 30, 2022

The two best women’s hockey teams in the world go head-to-head on Tuesday afternoon as Canada and the United States meet for the final game of the preliminary round at the 2022 Women’s World Championship. 

To no one’s surprise, both teams enter the contest undefeated in the tournament thus far, and the winner of this matchup determines the top seed in Group A. The two squads have already collected victories over Finland, Switzerland and Japan. 

Canada comes into Tuesday’s game off a 9-0 thumping of Japan on Sunday. The team is outscoring its opponents 17-2 through three games, with Sarah Fillier leading the way in points with six. Marie-Philip Poulin and Blayre Turnbull have registered five points so far.

The United States is coming off a 9-0 victory of its own, taking down Switzerland on Monday afternoon. The squad has now outscored its opponents 25-1 in Denmark. Taylor Heise leads the tournament in points with eight. Behind her are Alex Carpenter and Kendall Coyne Schofield, who each have recorded seven. 

It’s a rematch of the 2021 gold-medal game at the Women’s World Championship. Poulin potted the game-winning goal in overtime to give Canada its 11th gold medal at the event. The winner of the contest claims the top spot in the knockout stage.

Canada vs. USA live updates, highlights from 2022 Women’s World Championship

Third period

4:02 p.m. β€” Nothing doing for Canada on that power play. Americans did a solid job of keeping Canada to the outside, with any shots coming in uncontested and easy for Hensley. 

3:58 p.m. β€” The physicality has certainly picked up in this one. The USA gets a bit too aggressive and Kendal Coyne Schofield is going to be penalized for boarding. Canada gets its second power play  of the game, the team scored on its other opportunity in the first. 

3:53 p.m. β€” GOAL! The Americans have their first lead of the game as less than four minutes into the third, thanks to a tally from Lacey Eden. A risky pass from Harmon at the point gets through the slot to Eden, who rips it by Maschmeyer. 

3:51 p.m. β€” Savanahh Harmon walks into the slot from the point with plenty of time and space, cuts to the left side and tries to beat Maschmeyer, but she gloves it down. 

End second period: Canada 2, USA 2

3:29 p.m. β€” Canada survives a late onslaught by the Americans, who spent the entire last minute of the period in Canada’s zone. Two goals from the USA tie the game up heading into the second intermission. I thought that Canada was actually the better team in the middle frame, but just like in the first when the USA were stronger, the score board does not reflect that. 

3:22 p.m. β€” A horrid turnover in the USA zone by Jincy Dunne sends Canada in on a 3 on 2. Fillier finds the puck on her stick in the slot but Hensley makes the stop. Hensley has been sensational this period, keeping Canada at just two goals and allowing the Americans to get back in this one. 

3:16 p.m. β€” GOAL! Just like that, we have a tied game. Pannek deflects a shot from Cayla Barnes that beats Maschmeyer. After a push from Canada kept the Americans on their heels, it’s the United States that gets the next goal. 2-2 with less than nine minutes left. 

3:15 p.m. β€” Canada really starting to buzz here as Jessie Eldridge deflects a pass off the post. The Americans are struggling to get the puck out of the zone and even when they do, the are losing it and the puck is going right down the other way. 

3:12 p.m. β€” Canada has looked a lot better in this period. They are finally getting shots and chances on Hensley, with extended offensive zone time as well. 

3:10 p.m. β€” This is not unexpected, but it’s been a physical game between the two teams. Plenty of body contact going on, but the referees have deemed it all legal, minus the Pannek roughing in the first. 

3:02 p.m. β€” GOAL! USA gets on the board thanks to a power play goal by Megan Keller. A slick passing sequence results in Keller getting the puck in the slot and the puck somehow beats Maschmeyer. It looks like it may have gone off a Canadian defender. 

3:01 p.m. β€” A couple of chanes early for the U.S. While nothing still by Maschmeyer, the team heads to its first power play of the game as Meaghan Mikkelson is called for hooking. 

End first period: Canada 2, USA 0

2:38 p.m. β€” Canada holds a 2-0 lead over the USA after one period. While the Americans were the better team for the majority of the period, an early goal by Fillier and late power-play goal by Shelton give Canada the lead. It’s simple, but Canada finished the chances the team had, the USA did not. Shots on goal are 11-8 in favor of the United States. 

2:35 p.m. β€” GOAL! Canada extends its lead to 2-0 as Ella Shelton comes through on the power play. With multiple bodies in the crease and Nicole Hensley down and out, Shelton finds the loose puck and slams it home. She had a chance moments before the goal that as stopped, but she eventually converts on the power play with under two minutes to go. 

2:33 p.m. β€” A power play chance late in the first for Canada as Sarah Nurse draws a roughing call to USA’s Kelly Pannek. 

2:29 p.m. β€” Here come the chances for the United States. Another scramble near the crease as Heise has at least two whacks at a loose puck, but no dice. USA has been the better team, but have not found the back of the net and are down on the score board. 

2:26 p.m. β€” Hannah Bilka nearly had the equalizer for the USA.  A scramble at the side of net results in the puck finding its way through the crease. Bilka was on the backdoor but could not put it home. 

2:24 p.m. β€” Momentum is one USA’s side, as the Americans have responded well after allowing the Fillier goal. The team is out-shooting Canada 8-2 so far in the period, but haven’t had a ton of Grad-A opportunities. 

2:13 p.m. β€” GOAL! Canada gets on the board first, as Sarah Fillier continues her sensational Women’s Worlds with a rebound goal. Canada works the perimeter well, getting the puck up to the point where Renata Fast got a shot off. It looks like Fillier might have blocked the shot down, but she knocks it in to give Canada the 1-0 lead just over three minutes into the game. 

2:10 p.m. β€” A chance early for the USA as a blocked shot puts the puck up in the air. Taylor Heise settles it and fires a shot on net, but it’s plenty of time for Emerence Maschmeyer to reset and stop the puck. 


1:30 p.m. β€” Here are the lineups for both teams ahead of the final prelim game.
