Team Canada coach Willie Desjardins wants more consistency out of his team in its second Olympic outing Saturday against the Czech Republic.
Lamoureux-Davidson, who scored the fastest back-to-back goals in Olympic history in the USA win over Russian Federation, went too slow and Lacasse easily deflected her backhand shot.
Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the first game, however, is that the Canadians have dispelled any fear that they don't belong. Canada and the United States are the only countries to ever win gold at the Olympics. 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.
But Coyne beat Lacasse between the pads 23 seconds into the third to halve Canada's lead.
Noreau hammered home a power-play goal at 7:30 of the opening period when Canada took a two-goal lead.
However, just 23 seconds into the third period speedy US forward Kendall Coyne got past the Canadian defenders and put the puck between the legs of the Canadian netminder to cut the lead to one.
Less than a minute after Bourque's second, Wolski split two Swiss defensemen and wired a wrist shot past Genoni into the top corner.
Simon Moser pulled one back for Switzerland on the power play at 7:33 of the third, tapping in a puck that trickled through Ben Scrivens' legs after a goalmouth scramble.
US Section 232 options justified, would not hurt downstream: Commerce

Historic immigration debate in flux

Food may influence cancer spread
Food intake has been linked to cancer growth in the past, and this new study is another example of the connection. Foods that contain high amounts of asparagines include poultry meat and eggs, dairy, whey, beef, fish, sea foods.
Denmark tied the score in the final end, forcing the game into overtime. Decker hit two posts, the second in the final seconds, before the two rivals ended up in a scrum.
Canadian defender Brigette Lacquette roofed a backhand over Rooney late in the period, but the whistle was already sounding for players in the crease and it was quickly waived off.
Canada also lost its first game of the tournament, going down 8-6 against South Korea. It was Lacasse, stopping 44 of 45 shots as Team Canada defeated the Americans 2-1 in a typically-spirited preliminary battle between the two women's hockey superpowers.
One of the new things players on either side of the border war agree on is that the rivalry brings out the best with both teams. That the Canadians won anyway matters because they have won five straight games against the Americans.
The United States and Canada showdown on ice lived up to the hype on Wednesday night with a 2-1 victory for the neighbors from the north. "Today I am so proud and excited to have been named to Canada's Olympic Hockey Team".
The Canadian women have had puck drops at 9:10 p.m. and 4:40 p.m. and Thursday's game started just after noon local time.
Afterward, Danish skip Madeleine Dupont said she disagreed with Canada's decision to remove the rock.
