Canada's Goyette hits goal with two minutes left
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Liz Keady and Krissy Wendell had two goals apiece to lead the United States to a 6-1 victory Wednesday night over Finland in the opening round of the Four Nations Cup hockey tournament.
The U.S. team, with Chanda Gunn in goal, outshot the Finns 44-14 and scored twice in each period.
Jenny Potter and Andrea Kilbourne also scored for the United States against Heidi Wiik.
Sari Fisk had the only goal for Finland, in the second period.
Earlier, Canada beat Sweden 3-2 on Danielle Goyette's goal with less than two minutes to play.
The Americans beat Canada 2-1 in last year's final in a shootout that required 22 shots to decide the outcome.
Goyette pushed a backhand shot past Swedish goaltender Kim Martin at 18:44 of the third period in the tournament opener.
Sweden had tied the game about four minutes earlier on Gunilla Andersson's power-play goal from the point.
Hayley Wickenheiser and Vicky Sunohara also scored for Canada, and Jayna Hefford had three assists.
Sami Jo Small, a last-minute replacement for an ailing Kim St. Pierre, stopped 10 of 12 shots for Canada. Maria Rooth also scored for Sweden with a power-play goal.
