How Canada beat Team USA at 2022 IIHF Women’s World Championship

September 4, 2022 at 10:42 PM WBS

How Canada did it, what’s next for Team USA

Team Canada has now won the last three major international tournaments—four if you count the U18 women’s world championships—and back-to-back world championships for the first time since 1990-91.

How they got here probably wasn’t easy to predict.

Despite some similarities — like Jenner’s heroics — this was not the version of Team Canada we saw only six months ago in Beijing. That team rewrote the record books, steamrolled opponents (57-10), went undefeated in the tournament and made a legitimate case to be remembered as the best Canadian women’s national team ever.

This team took its time to get rolling.

Taylor Heise wins tournament MVP

Taylor Heise winning tournament MVP shows that next wave of USA hockey taking over.

She was the team’s second line center and thrived initially as a puck distributor for Amanda Kessel and her shooting talent. But as games continued, she showed her goal scoring abilities as well.

Solid year for her – a Patty Kazmaier award in the NCAA, then this.

Outlook for TeamUSA

It’s a disappointing finish for Team USA after such a dominant tournament, where they looked like such a different team from their last two outings.

The positive is that they set themselves up for success in the future since some of their young core has emerged – players like Harvey, Heise, Roque, and Dunne are showing what impact players they can be for years to come after earning key roles.

The coaching staff deserves credits, as do the players for stepping up and running with the opportunities they had.

Team Canada wins gold

Marie-Phillip Poulin may not have the golden goal, but she comes up with a huge block on Caroline Harvey in the final seconds of the game.

Make it three straight gold medals for Team Canada – 2021 Worlds, the Olympics, and 2022 Worlds

Timeout Team USA

Team USA calls a timeout with 1:25 to go.

Shots are 19-17 in favor of Canada, USA still trails 2-1. They need a goal to force overtime and give us the inevitable 3-2 ending.

Three power plays for Roque

Abby Roque has three power play goals in the tournament. She’s going to wish she had four.

Multiple shots from the chaos in front of Canada’s net, but nothing made it through. Now Canada is headed to the power play.

Jeez.

Team USA getting their chances

That penalty is killed off, but the US sure are getting their chances, and close ones in tight too. Desbiens is making the save, but others… they’re just off the mark.

Anyways, Canada is back on the power play.

big puckhandling mistake

That’s a pretty big puckhandling mistake by Ann-Renée Desbiens.

Hilary Knight couldn’t quite make her pay at the moment, but here comes the power play for another crack.

Feels like we’re about to see the benches cut drastically here soon… two lines, two pairs?

Coyne Schofield Team USA’a all-time assist leader

With a secondary assist on Abby Roque’s goal, Kendall Coyne Schofield is now Team USA’s all-time assist leader at women’s worlds, breaking the record Brianna Decker set at last year’s tournament.

Huge, huge goal

Huge, huge goal from the US power play at the end of the second period. It looked like three of Canada’s penalty killers zeroed in on Amanda Kessel carrying the puck toward the goal line and forgot about Abby Roque.

Brianne Jenner now has 100 points in her career with Team Canada. A nice time to hit that kind of milestone.

Hensley makes a crucial save

That Hensley save on Fillier may be an important one. This game could have gotten out of hand quickly, and shutting the door on one of the best skaters on the ice may be a confidence booster.

Brianne Jenner extends Canada’s lead, 2-0

Brianne Jenner’s first goal seemed a little soft, from the US perspective. The second one, less so. She seemed to pick the far side with traffic in front. What a consistent couple minutes in this game. Kristin O’Neill drawing a penalty to put Canada back on the power play… huge.

Nicole Hensley under pressure is dangerous

This is where we see what Nicole Hensley can do under pressure. AND what Canada can do to put this away. Remember, they were up 2-0 last time…This time its different though. It’s a gold medal game, and Desbiens — Canada’s No.1 — is in net.

It’s giving preliminary vibes

This is giving preliminary vibes, in a way. Canada capitalized first, then went to the power play to double the score. USA managed to bounce back in the second last time around, so let’s see what happens here.
