Team Canada and Team USA took to a Sunday matinee to close out their two game exhibition series as a part of their joint practice in preparation for their upcoming Rivalry Series. Friday night, Canada beat the United States 4-1.
Sunday, Canada got on the board early again with three quick goals in the first period. USA was able to make a slight comeback in the third period but ultimately lost to Canada, led by Emily Clark who posted a hat trick.
The game had a combined total of 46 penalty minutes and only three of the eight goals were scored at even strength. USA also outshot Canada 34-28 which was not something they could do in the first game.
These teams will meet again on Saturday Dec. 14 at XL Center in Hartford, CT for game one of the Rivalry Series.
