Although Finland’s star goalie Noora Raty did her best to contain Team USA, the American players kept the pressure on throughout the game.

Canada’s victory over Russia 5-0 secured their spot in the final game for gold as well. Canada has played for the gold at every Winter Game since women’s hockey became part of the Olympic program in 1998 and for the fifth time in six Winter Games they will face the United States.

“This is something we have worked hard for all year and it comes down to one game and it is going to be the better team that comes out on top and there is no doubt in my mind that we are going to be ready for whatever it takes.”
