In front of a near sold-out crowd at the Richmond Olympic Oval, the Canadians traded goals and hits with the rival Americans for the first half of the game. At halftime, the score was tied 24-24. Halfway through the third quarter, however, Canada racked up several penalties that resulted in turnovers and quickly found themselves behind by as much as six.
