After taking down Finland in their first game of the 2022 Winter Olympics, the U.S. women’s hockey team is squaring off against the ROC with hopes of staying unbeaten at this year’s Olympic hockey tournament. The Americans will need to do so without Brianna Decker, but players like Alex Carpenter and Abby Roque stepped up admirably after Decker exited the team’s opening contest with a lower-body injury.

First period

0:00 – Puck is dropped for USA vs. ROC! The U.S. is wearing their new blue sweaters for the first time at these Olympics while the Russian athletes are rocking their white duds. Somehow, the ROC might be getting the W in the uniform department. Yikes.

4:48 – Kendall Coyne Schofield gets a breakaway, but her scoring bid gets shut down by ROC goaltender Maria Sorokina. Great opportunity for the U.S. captain.

5:27 – The Americans head to their first power play of the game after ROC’s Alexandra Vafina gets called for hooking. Nothing doing on the advantage, though.

10:03 – ROC’s Valeria Pavlova gets a partial breakaway, but she was unable to get a shot on USA netminder Nicole Hensley as a pair of U.S. defenders were closing in.

11:08 – Yelena Provorova heads to the box for tripping. Kendall Coyne Schofield’s strong skating claims yet another soul.

12:29 – Savannah Harmon breaks the ice and gives the U.S. the early 1-0 lead. Heck of a play from Hilary Knight to stave off an ROC defender and feed Harmon, who was waiting on the doorstep.
