Team Canada and Team USA Go For Gold In Women’s World Championship Tonight

from the CP at TSN,

World championships scarce lately for the Canadian women's hockey team, they're getting another chance to end their drought.

Friday's final against the United States marks the 18th time in 18 championships the archrivals have clashed for gold.

Winner of three in a row, the American women intend to have their storybook ending on home ice with a fourth.

Canada has won 10 times and the U.S. seven. The Americans have beaten Canada in six of the last seven, including last year's 1-0 overtime victory in Kamloops, B.C.

Canada hasn't claimed gold since 2012 in Burlington, Vt. Over a third of the current team hasn't experienced victory in a world final.

"It's hard to put into words, but we really want it," forward Brianne Jenner said. "It would mean a lot to a lot of us here."

Canada blanked Finland 4-0 and the United States shut out surprise semifinalist Germany 11-0 on Thursday to advance.

The Canadians edged the Americans 3-2 in an overtime thriller to win Olympic gold in 2014.

Puck drops at 7:30pm ET on TSN4, TSN5 and and the NHL Network in the US.
