HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Canada’s National Women’s Team has captured gold at the 2004 IIHF World Women’s Hockey Championship, with an 2-0 win over the USA. For an eighth consecutive World Championship, Canada has captured the World title, defeating the USA in each of the eight finals. Canada captured all seven previous World Women’s Hockey Championships (1990, 1992, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001).

GOLD MEDAL GAME RECAP

In front of a packed Halifax Metro Centre, Team Canada and Team USA came through with another great chapter in their longstanding tradition of great women’s hockey on Tuesday evening. After a scoreless first in which both goaltenders, Pam Dreyer (USA) and Kim St-Pierre (CAN), made several key saves, Hayley Wickenheiser opened the scoring at 4:17 of the second period with a powerful wrist shot that beat Dreyer, which later proved to be the game winning goal.

Delaney Collins made it 2-0 Canada at 1:37 of the third period as she pushed a loose puck past Dreyer.
