U.S. Women's National Team Captures 9-2 Win Over Canada in 2012 IIHF Women's World Championship

BURLINGTON, Vt. – The U.S. scored five first period goals en route to a 9-2 victory over Canada here tonight at the Gutterson Fieldhouse in both team's opening preliminary-round game of the 2012 International Ice Hockey Federation Women's World Championship.

"I'm certainly very happy with the way we came out tonight," said Katey Stone, head coach for the U.S. Women's National Team. "Our team was excited to get out of the gate and start the tournament. We contribute a lot to the atmosphere of the crowd."

Jocelyne Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.) tallied the first of five opening period goals 37 seconds into the contest. Hilary Knight (Sun Valley, Id.) connected on a rebound at 1:24 of the first period, Monique Lamoureux-Kolls (Grand Forks, N.D.) notched a power-play tally at 3:32, Julie Chu (Fairfield, Conn.) scored a power-play goal from a sharp angle at 4:52 and Lamoureux-Kolls found the back of the net for her second goal of the night at 5:32 to give the U.S. a five-goal lead heading into the first intermission.

Canada's Natalie Spooner put the Canadians on the board 39 seconds into the second period before the U.S. responded with Lamoureux's second goal of the night on a rebound from Megan Bozek (Buffalo Grove, Ill.). Jayna Hefford scored for Canada at 17:03 of the second period.

Josephine Pucci (Pearl River, N.Y.) scored at 5:29 off a pass from Lamoureux-Kolls to score the first of three third period goals. Knight found the back of the net for the second time with help from Jenny Potter (Edina, Minn.), before Lamoureux-Kolls picked up her third goal and sixth point of the night at 11:17.

The U.S. will face Russia tomorrow night (April 8) at 7 p.m. in Burlington, Vt., for its second preliminary-round game of the IIHF Women's World Championship.
