The two have been the powerhouses of the women’s hockey world, and both come in harboring dreams of standing on the gold medal podium when the final horn sounds.
“We’ve worked four years for this one moment,” said forward Megan Bozek. “We’re right where we need to be. There’s 60 minutes left for us to achieve our dream.”

“We wouldn’t want to face anyone else in the gold-medal game,” said forward Amanda Kessel. “They’re the defending Olympic champions so you want to play the best.”
Canada comes into the game with 19 consecutive victories in Olympic play, but they know that they will have to be on top of their game to beat the Americans again.
“We just have to be crisper with everything we do,” said defenseman Lee Stecklein. “Every pass has to be where we want it. We need to forecheck like we have to. We need to backcheck like we have to.”
