Game Story

VICTORIA WINS IT IN VICTORIA, CANADA GETS FIRST RIVALRY WIN

JASON LA ROSE

VICTORIA, B.C. – Brigette Lacquette (Mallard, Man.) tied it on the power play with 6:48 left and Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont.) won it 3:22 into overtime, giving Canada’s National Women’s Team a 3-2 extra-time victory over the United States in Game 3 of the Rivalry Series on Monday night.

After dropping the first two games in December, Canada kept its hopes of a series win alive with a come-from-behind triumph in the 152nd meeting between the long-time rivals.

Blayre Turnbull (Stellarton, N.S.) put in the work in the overtime winner, racing down the left wing and slipping a centring pass to Bach, who tucked a backhand through U.S. goaltender Nicole Hensley.

Bach has scored four career goals with Team Canada, all against the United States and all in a span of five games this season.

Brianne Jenner (Oakville, Ont.) had the other goal for Canada and added an assist.

Ann-Renée Desbiens (La Malbaie, Que.) posted the win between the pipes, making 20 saves.

Down by a goal with time ticking away, the Canadians took advantage of penalty trouble by the U.S.; just as the first half of a two-man advantage expired, Lacquette gathered the rebound off a blocked shot and let go a shot that hit an American stick and eluded Hensley to tie the game.

After a scoreless first period that was not short on chances – Turnbull had a sure goal taken away by a sliding Megan Keller in the crease late in the opening frame – both teams converted on special teams in the second.

Jenner opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal five-and-a-half minutes in; all alone on a breakaway, the puck rolled off her stick but still found its way past Hensley.

Hilary Knight tied it less than seven minutes later on a U.S. power play, hammering a slap shot short side on Desbiens.

Savannah Harmon gave the Americans their first lead early in the third period when she jumped in off the blue-line and snapped a shot past Desbiens, but the Canadian comeback was on from there.

The series makes its final Canadian stop Wednesday night in Vancouver (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT) before it heads south for the finale Saturday in Anaheim, Calif. (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).
