Canadian women's hockey team struggle in Grand Forks

According to the Hockey Canada website, the United States beat Canada 4-1 in the fourth game of their six game series in preparation for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Friday from Grand Forks, North Dakota.

The American line of Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux and Meghan Duggan were dominant as they contributed to two key America goals and six points overall.

This was the first game for Canadian head coach Kevin Dineen, and it is clear his major task at the moment is to shift the momentum which is definitely in the United States' favour with the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi seven weeks away.

The Americans will next play the Canadians on December 28 from Minnesota and then again on December 30 from Toronto. It is very evident that Team Canada is missing two of their elite forwards--Hayley Wickenheiser of Shaunavon, Saskatchewan and Marie-Philip Poulin of Beauceville, Quebec. But it should be pointed out the Americans were also missing one of their top forwards, Amanda Kessel, who is the younger sister of Toronto Maple Leafs star Phil Kessel.
