The US women’s hockey team lost 3-2 to Canada in a shootout Tuesday night to open the IIHF world championships, but bounced back with a four goal first period against Finland Wednesday, eventually winning 4-2. The victory earned Team USA three crucial points in the standings heading into their final Group-A game with the Swiss on Friday.

Forward Monique Lamoureux scored her second and third goals of the tournament off passes from her twin sister Jocelyne to lead the team to the win.
