Women s hockey pucked
On Friday the American team, playing in front of its home crowd, won the world championship by besting its archrival Canada, 3-2, on an overtime goal that was scored by Hilary Knight and set up by Kendall Coyne using the same blazing speed she used to torment opponents throughout the tournament.It was the fourth time in a row that the American women have defeated Canada for the world title. @WCHA_WHockey #unleash SCSU #St Cloud State #St Cloud MN pic.twitter.com/3M9Nh GV8sf Are you wanting a way to get into all Huskies DII sports & DI women's hockey events this year?Nelson tallied 46 points on 31 goals and 15 assists for the Huskies that season.She joins @jinellelynn, who has been promoted to associate head coach therinklive.com/2019/07/17/scs… #Unleash SCSU @WCHA_WHockey #St Cloud State @NCAAIce Hockey #St Cloud MN Congratulations to @SCSUHUSKIES_WHK Jinelle Siergiej and welcome to Molly Engstrom!

Staff moves for @SCSUHUSKIES_WHK - Coach Steve Macdonald provides his insight into promotion of Jinelle Siergiej and addition of Molly Engstrom to the Huskies' staff. Both Siergiej and Engstrom played for Team USA at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Early in the game, Canada signaled that this would be a different contest than the teams’ first meeting a week ago, a 2-0 victory for the United States.
Hensley kept the Americans in it, making a glove save on a shot by Bailey Bram and covering loose pucks in the crease.
The United States appeared to have seized control 42 seconds into the third period when Knight slid a backward, between-the-legs pass into the slot and Bellamy chopped it past Canadian goalie Shannon Szabados to take the lead.
But what made this championship so special was that it came after the American players took a stand for gender equity in a sport dominated and governed by men.
Demanding increased stipends and other benefits to help support themselves between Olympics, the American players put their chance for a fourth consecutive title on the line. Hockey, the sport’s national governing body, was reached three days before the world championship began.“It’s two storybook endings for us,” Knight said.
