Lamoureux-Davidson sets Olympic record as US defeats OAR, 5-0


United States' Dani Cameranesi falls to the ice as she chases the puck in front of Russia's Angelina Goncharenko during their preliminary-round women's hockey game at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, on Tuesday.

Warroad's Gigi Marvin added her first Olympic goal in the second period as the Americans moved to 2-0 in the Pyeongchang Games and clinched a spot in the semifinals. Lamoureux's twin sister Jocelyne touched off an even larger brawl in a December 4-1 USA win in Grand Forks, N.D. When it was all over the referee had handed out 10 fighting majors and there were six US players in the penalty box, five Canadians.

Lamoureux-Davidson broke an Olympic record that had existed since 1960, when Sweden's Carl Goran Oberg scored a pair of goals in eight seconds at the Winter Games in Squaw Valley, Calif.

But before we can do that, Team USA and Canada will face off to wrap up the group stage at 10:10 p.m. ET Wednesday night. Lamoureux-Morando fired a shot through traffic from the right circle. Lamoureux-Davidson assisted on the play before making history.

On the following faceoff, the Russians won it back, but Jocelyne poked it free and skated in alone on a breakaway. The three-time Olympian looking for her first gold medal is just happy to give the Americans a bit of a boost.

Less than three minutes later, Marvin scored on a rebound of an Amanda Pelkey shot. That game was tied 1-1 until deep in the second period, and it wasn't in hand until an empty-net goal late in the third.

With the win, the Americans remained undefeated going into their early Olympic showdown with Canada, which is also 2-0.

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

Bellamy opened the scoring when she fired a wrist shot past Tarakanova at 13:41 of the first period.
