Hilary Knight, F, United States
Knight was an offensive powerhouse against Finland, putting eight shots on goal. She scored once and assisted on another goal in 22:07 of ice time.
For the United States offense to be as proficient as it can be, Knight must be in top goal-scoring form, which it seems like she is based off of her performance Saturday.
Lara Stalder and Julia Marty, Defense, Switzerland
The Swiss duo recorded the highest amount of ice time by defenders in the loss to Canada. Stalder spent 22:08 on the ice, while Marty was out there for 21:20.
Stalder and Marty will surely see a ton of pressure yet again, and they must be the two most active players on the ice for Switzerland.
If the defensive duo can halt an early American scoring outburst, they may give their team a chance to make an upset bid.
Amanda Kessel, Forward, United States
Amanda Kessel had the most shots on goal against Finland for a forward who failed to score for the Red, White and Blue with five.
She could potentially be the top scorer on the team, but she needs to find the back of the net soon to do that.
