at 2011 Women's IIHF Twelve Nations Invitational Tournament Series

Meghan Duggan Named Player of the Game for Second Straight Night

VIERUMAKI, Finland -- Molly Schaus (Natick, Mass.) made 17 saves to lead the U.S. Women's National Team to a 4-0 shutout of Canada in its fourth game of the International Ice Hockey Federation Twelve Nations Invitational Tournament Series. With the win, the U.S. improved to 4-0 in the tournament.

"It was a fun game today," said Katey Stone, head coach of the 2011 U.S. Women's National Team. "The kids played on their toes, which made it exciting to watch."

After a scoreless first period, Meghan Duggan (Danvers, Mass.) struck for her fourth goal of the Twelve Nations Invitational Tournament Series at 3:28 of the second period. Jocelyne Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.) opened a two-goal lead for the U.S. with a power-play marker at 7:23. Hilary Knight (Sun Valley, Idaho) lit the lamp at 11:52 of the middle frame and Lisa Chesson (Plainfield, Ill.) tallied a power-play goal with eight seconds remaining in the second period to give the U.S. a four-goal lead.

The U.S. held its 4-0 lead through the third period, outshooting Canada, 43-17, in the game.

Schaus made 17 saves to pick up her second shutout of the IIHF Twelve Nations Invitational Tournament Series.
