                On April 16th, Team USA won the 2023 IIHF Women’s World Championship with a 6-3 come from behind win against their rivals Team Canada on Canadian soil. The Canadian women were looking to make it three straight gold medals and had home ice advantage with a sellout crowd every night in Brampton, ON. Team USA captain Hilary Knight led the way in silencing the Canadian faith full scoring three goals and registering her 100th point in her IIHF Worlds career. This win broke the Americans three game losing skid in finals games against the Canadians. Their last win being the gold medal game of the 2018 Olympics where they beat the Canadians 3-2 in a shootout. This is Team USA’s 10th gold medal.
