The United States and Canada extended their streak of clashing for gold at the women's world hockey championship. The international women's hockey archrivals square off in Monday's final for the 17th time in as many tournaments.
The United States is a win away from extending their golden streak at the women's world hockey championship. The defending champions advanced to Monday's final in Kamloops, B.C., with a 9-0 semifinal win over Russia on Sunday.
Canada will be less green at this year's women's world hockey championships. The return of Hayley Wickenheiser, Meghan Agosta and Meaghan Mikkelson to the lineup, plus several players who made their world championship debut a year ago make for a seasoned lineup.
