"It was a great victory," said Team USA Head Coach Mark Johnson, who is also the head women's ice hockey coach at the University of Wisconsin. "I'm excited for the team and the opportunity to play Canada tomorrow and again on Sunday for a world championship. We talked about what we wanted to do and the players went out and executed."

The US will play Canada for the Gold on Sunday, but first they'll get to play Canada tonight in the final game of the qualifying round (Game Notes).
