    Poulin Clobbers Decker in Front of Goal

    As Szabados pokes the puck off the stick of Decker, Poulin drives in and knocks Decker to the ground. By all accounts, that should've been a penalty on the Canadian captain.

    Third will start shortly. Canada up 2-1, and probably this score won’t hold, but gwg right now belongs to Poulin. Obviously. Teammates call her Captain Clutch for a reason. #Olympics

    Another Power Play for USA

    The Americans start their fifth power play with 4:43 left in the second period. Can the USA generate some energy in front of the Canada net, or will the defending Olympic champion continue to thrive in the second?

    Americans Kill 1st Penalty

    Canada gets two shots on goal, but fails to score against the Americans, who are in need of a momentum boost of some sort. Let's see if the penalty kill helps energize the Americans for the final five minutes of the second period.
