US Women's Team Blanks Russia 5-0

"It was pretty special", Lamoureux-Davidson told NBC Olympics after the game.

Lamoureux-Davidson scored two goals in a 6-second span in a game against the Olympic athletes from Russian Federation. In the Americans' final tune-up before their Group A finale against rival Canada, the onslaught was exactly what they needed.

She did it in Olympic-record fashion.

Then came the prettiest goal of the game.

The American women were dominant in their 5-0 rout of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, who were outclassed in every phase of the game from the very beginning.

Thanks to Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, the goals came early and often against the Russians, whose roster was racked by the doping scandal that landed the nation in International Olympic Committee purgatory at the 2018 Games.


Meghan Agosta, Canada: The MVP from the 2010 Games picked up a pair of points in Canada's 4-1 win against Finland.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson had a historic six-second stretch in the second period. Bellamy scored off of a Lamoureux-Davidson assist.

Kacey Bellamy and Gigi Marvin also scored for Team USA, who will face Canada in its next match, a potential gold medal preview. As a team, the Americans recorded 50 shots on the net compared to just 13 for O.A.R.

Lamoureux-Davidson tapped in the rebound of a shot from her twin sister, Monique Lamoureux-Morando, at 11:46. It's an inspiring start for the US women, who are preparing to take on their greatest rivals and the most formidable team in worldwide hockey right now: Canada. However, she would eventually score her first Olympic goal late in the third period.

"We're just going to carry the momentum we had in this game here", USA coach Robb Stauber said.

Lamoureux-Davidson took the puck off of a face-off for a breakaway.
