USA Wins Four Nations Cup

The United States got the better of Canada once again in the final of the Four Nations Cup.

Hannah Brandt had back-to-back goals in the second period as the U.S. topped the Canadians 5-1 yesterday to win the tournament for a third straight year.

The Four Nations Cup is the lone international tournament for Canada ahead of the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.  The two countries will meet again on Dec. 3 in St. Paul, Minnesota as part of a pre-Olympic exhibition tour.

The Canadians last won the Four Nations Cup in 2014 and has captured gold 14 times at the event compared to eight titles for the U.S.

Hilary Knight, Amanda Kessel and Kendall Coyne rounded out the attack for the Americans.

Meghan Agosta's goal 10:42 into the third period pulled Canada to within a goal of its rivals.  Genevieve Lacasse made 22 saves in net.
