U.S. eager to avenge gold-medal heartbreak vs. Canada

By now you know the history between these two teams. Since womens hockey was introduced to the Olympics at the 1998 Nagano Games, the U.S. or Canada has won every gold medal, facing off in all but one of the five Winter Games. After the U.S. won the inaugural gold, theyve been shutout since, losing in sometimes excruciating fashion to Canada in three gold medal games.
