In the other semifinal earlier Monday, Dani Cameranesi scored twice and added an assist, and goaltender Maddie Roonie made 14 saves in a 5-0 USA win over Finland.
The United States vowed not to let the gold slip away in Thursday's final.
"On one hand it's like any other hockey tournament".
"We all are acquaintances, but that does not matter", Canadian forward Rebecca Johnston said Monday. "It's what we dream about since we're little girls".
The Women's hockey team really start the game open with the help of their power play, which accounted for the Americans' third, fourth and fifth goals. That drew the ire of Canadian defender Brigette Lacquette, who took a minor penalty for roughing, while Dyupina served a double minor. "I watched it as a kid so to participate in it is pretty special", Greenway said in a call from South Korea.
"I'm just saying that when you put pucks to the net over and over and over, people have to defend that, " Stauber said. We celebrate rivalry victories in hockey like no other. Maddie Rooney made 14 saves for the shutout.
Canada beat Russian Federation by the same 5-0 score earlier in the tournament and continued that trend on Monday with an early goal from Jennifer Wakefield. The semifinal followed a similar pattern with the Canadians wearing down their defence. Sure, 22-year-old Dani Cameranesi scored a pair of goals, giving her a team-high three in these Olympics.
To make it better, the Dutch were nowhere in sight, totally shut out in an event they swept only four years ago. "I think we had the attitude to act like you've been there before". "We're excited about the kind of game we're playing".
