Rivalry Series: Full comeback for Canadians


Canada's National Women's Team put on a high quality spectacle for the fans gathered at Place Bell on Wednesday, beating the Americans 5-0 in the final game of the Rivalry Series.< /strong>

Representatives of the maple leaf thus won this exhibition series four games to three, after having lowered the flag during the first three duels.

A second period of thunder allowed Troy Ryan's troupe to easily defeat the Americans. Forward Blayre Turnbull sounded the charge with two goals during this engagement.

Eternal pet peeve of the United States, Beauceronne Marie-Philip Poulin also shook the ropes, as did Victoria Bach and Ella Shelton.

Laura Stacey stood out with three assists. Goaltender Ann-Renée Desbiens only had to fend off 25 pucks to sign the shutout.

It was more difficult on the American side between the posts. Nicole Hensley was sent to the showers after allowing three goals on eight short shots, then Maddie Rooney was debunked twice on 10 shots.
