Hockey

The fight for gold is on tonight as the U.S. women try to end their Olympic losing skid against three-time defending champions Canada. Both teams have been on an absolute tear throughout this whole tournament. Canada and the USA both won their respective semifinals by 5-0 scorelines.

It wasn’t any surprise that the highest quality, and most physical, game during the women’s tournament was Canada and USA’s first game. Tonight, with a gold medal on the line, this game should top that.

Shiffrin won the gold medal in the giant slalom, but since then placed outside of podium contention in the slalom and dropped out of two other races. Vonn missed the podium in the slalom as well, but just picked up a bronze medal in the downhill.

Jamie Anderson and Julia Marino are the medal hopefuls of the USA contingent, but they’ll have to challenge Austria’s Anna Gasser for the top spot.
