Team USA defeats Finland in women's hockey

Speaking at a news conference on Monday, Granato said he saw no need to screen the film "Miracle" before his team plays its Olympic opener on Wednesday against Slovenia at Kwandong Hockey Center. Finland actually took a 1-0 lead to the second period before the US was able to scratch out goals from Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Kendall Coyne a minute apart in the second to take the lead.

The win brings the USA into a tie with Canada (three points each) atop the Group A standings, with Finland and the Olympics Athletes from Russian Federation at the bottom with one loss each. The Americans have now scored eight unanswered goals in their two games after yielding an early score by Finland in their first contest.

The U.S. men didn't play any "friendly" or exhibition games before settling in at the Athletes' Village, and they've had four practices here.

"It's a great way to start the tournament", Monique Lamoureux-Morando said after the game, via NBC's broadcast. Forward Kendall Coyne had a standout game for Team USA against Finland, as she netted the eventual game-winning goal for the Americans and looked deadly all game with her speed. "A little bit of excitement, jitters".

"I'm disappointed. You want to represent your country, and you're not able to obviously and that sucks, sucks for the players, sucks for the fans, you work hard to play in those Stanley Cup Finals, the Olympic games, to represent your country and it's very disappointing that we are not able to". The puck bounced around on top of the net before being put back in play.

The first USA goal, and the eventual victor, came from 30-year-old defenseman Kacey Bellamy of Westfield, Mass. on a blast from the right after a ideal cross-ice feed from Lamoureux-Davidson on the left wing. "Especially against a phenomenal goaltender like Noora".

Coach Tony Granato had a full complement of players for the first time at the US men's Olympic hockey practice Saturday. As for these Pyeongchang games, the Americans now have a good chance to secure a bye for the quarterfinals and an automatic spot in the semifinals.
