What a day to remember for U.S. coach Mark Johnson.
On the 30th anniversary of the "Miracle on Ice" -- in which he scored two goals -- Johnson saw his team avenge their 2006 Olympic shootout loss to Sweden with a 9-1 victory.
The Americans jumped ahead 4-0, then put the game away with four goals early in the third period, all against Kim Martin, the same goalie who stunned them in Turin.
Monique Lamoureux scored three goals. Angela Ruggiero, a four-time Olympian playing in her record 250th game, also scored.
Canada advanced with a 4-0 win over Finland. Meghan Agosta set an Olympics record with her ninth goal and Canada upped its margin of victory for the tournament to 46-2.
