On one hand it's like any other hockey tournament and on the other hand it's our Stanley Cup, right?

Although the USA and Canada have met on every final except at the 2006 Turin Olympics, the Americans have not had gold hung around their necks since the Nagano Games with the Canadians occupying top spot on the podium ever since. "It's well-documented", said Rebecca Johnston, who scored Canada's fifth goal.

For Spooner it got real when as a 11-year-old she attended a hockey camp in Peterborough and got to meet Team Canada veteran Jennifer Botterill and see the gold she earned in 2002. "It's going to be a rough game".

On a day when International Ice Hockey Federation President Rene Fasel announced the Olympic tournament at the 2022 Beijing Winter Games would expand from eight to 10 teams, Canada and USA continued to show they remain a class apart.

"Those games don't matter". "I was probably in the crib watching that game", American goaltender Maddie Rooney said.

Neutrality is an absolute must for Feldman, whose company American Group Management has worked with premier women's hockey players on both sides of the border during a 13-year career in Olympic sport management, including Canadian icon Jennifer Botterill and four USA national team captains. Canada then equalised in the final seconds and won in over-time. "At the of the day, we have very proud players", he says. "We looked ourselves in the mirror and figured out what we can take from it".

"So it goes bigger than hockey, this whole experience for us". We've learned from things in the past but we're looking forward. Finland has won two bronze medals in women's hockey (1998 and 2010).

India & Iran have much to share & gain from each other: Prez
India and Iran signed agreements Saturday for avoidance of double taxation and implementing an extradition treaty signed in 2008. PM Modi also appreciated the way the Iranian leader provided leadership in developing strategically-important Chabahar Port .

History doesn't offer great hope of more than that for a group of women brought together by politicians seeking a brief picture of unity.

The Canadian hegemony extends to the masculine where they won 9 titles in 15 participations. "But I'm good", Savolainen said. The Canadians, she says, play a superior team game, are always prepared and have a well-established system that's tough to beat.

"We have really enjoyed working with the North players and coaches and we really do want to help them in the future", she said.

"But once the puck is dropped you're on auto-pilot", Jenner added.

"You know we have the rivalry". The gold medal game also saw heroics from Marie Philip-Poulin, who scored both goals for Canada.

"They give me energy, just like my family gives me energy, " she said. "The other nights we had 44, 50 etc and we didn't score as much".

Canada players salute the crowd after their win over the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation in the Olympic semifinals.
