The United States and Canada’s women’s Olympic hockey rivalry began when the sport made its debut at the 1998 Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan. Led by captain Cammi Granato, the Americans beat their heavily favored northern neighbors 3-1 to take home the gold. Canada was quick to turn the tides, leaving America to settle for silver in 2002, 2010, and 2014, after an overtime heart-breaker in the Sochi Games. The United States broke that streak with an epic 3-2 shootout victory over their arch rivals in Pyeongchang, finally returning to the Olympic glory found on that magical night in Nagano.
