Should Canada advance to the final, it will be the third consecutive Winter Olympics in which the US and Canada have faced off. Team USA's veterans have yet to make a major impact in this tournament, and they've only got one more game to break out and steal the show.
That is, and has been, the story when Canada and the United States meet for Olympic gold in women's hockey.
Canada's women's ice hockey team beat Russian Federation 7-0 at the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002 and 12-0 at the Turin Olympic Games.

Canada took an early lead in the game on Monday with a goal by Jennifer Wakefield less than two minutes into the first period. He was banned two games at the World Championships past year after swinging his skate at a Switzerland player.

Captain Meghan Duggan found Marvin alone in the slot, and she beat the Finnish goalie stick-side for the easy goal just 2:25 into the game.
Ronja Savolainen being escorted to the dressing room after being injured in the first period. She was knocked off balance before crashing face-first into the boards, snapping her head back. But she returned in the second period and said after that she had no symptoms more serious than cold legs from being on the ice so long. They were routed 8-0 in the opener by Switzerland and beaten by the same score in their second game.
Stauber said the referee immediately came over and said it was a collision. "I mean, I think it was in the first three minutes", she said, grinning.
If she doesn't start, Canada could go with Geneviève Lacasse, who was between the pipes when Canada won that first game against the Americans.

Facing Canada again is a tantalizing prospect, but Duggan said the Americans aren't looking beyond their opener against Finland. The U.S.' Miracle on Ice against the Soviet Union was in 1980, and it consisted of a team made up of amateur athletes.
