Canada used three third-period goals to rally and beat Team USA 3-2 Wednesday in an Olympic womens hockey preliminary match at Shayba Arena in Sochi, Russia. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-90-sneakerboot-espana.html . Meghan Agosta-Marciano celebrated her 27th birthday with two goals, while Hayley Wickenheiser added her second goal of the tournament. "I didnt go out there thinking Im going to score on my birthday," said Agosta-Marciano. "I scored a hat trick at the Torino Olympics in 2006 [on her 19th birthday], but this is a different Olympics with a different team. Theyre all so special. The emotion of scoring doesnt get any better." Hilary Knight and Anne Schleper replied with goals for the U.S. The game lived up to the advanced hype of womens two hockey superpowers put on a thrilling display. It went right down to the wire. Both goaltenders were outstanding. Canadas Charline Labonté made 25 saves, and American Jessie Vetter stopped 28 pucks. Canada snapped a four-game losing streak to the Americans and finished Group A with a perfect 3-0 record. "[The win] felt so good," Labonté told CBC. "Weve been struggling a little bit in the past couple of games against them. Weve worked really hard to readjust and become a better team. They came out really strong as expected so Im really glad that we came up with the win." Both teams advanced to the semifinals. The U.S. finally broke the scoreless deadlock with only 2:26 left in the second period. With the Americans on the power play, Knight redirected a point shot by Schleper behind Labonté. The Canadians replied with a power-play goal of their own at 2:21 into the third period. Wickenheiser fed a beautiful back-hand pass to Agosta-Marciano, who buried a one-timer past Vetter. Canada took a 2-1 lead more than a minute later after some confusion. Vetter stopped Wickenheisers initial shot, but the puck slid under her and across the goal-line as American forward Alex Carpenter tried to tuck the rebound back to her goaltender. The goal was reviewed and confirmed. "There was a whistle and thats why a lot of our girls stopped playing. I mean, in the U.S., we play to the whistle," said Knight. "I dont know if they have audio on the tape but I heard a whistle." Showing her speed, Agosta-Marciano scored the eventual winning goal with less than six minutes remaining in the third. The 27-year-old grabbed a loose puck at her own blue-line and raced in on a breakaway before beating Vetter. Schleper made things interesting following her blast by Labonté with 1:05 remaining, but Canada killed off a too-many-men on the ice penalty in the final minute for the victory. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-lunar-90-jcrd-espana.html . -- Howie Kendrick had a two-run single in his first game batting leadoff this season, Chris Iannetta hit a pair of RBI singles and the Los Angeles Angels beat Cleveland 6-4 Tuesday night, sending the Indians to their fifth straight defeat. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-90-prm-tapes.html .C. - Marcus Lattimore feels close to 100 per cent and is counting down the days until he can run free and easy for the San Francisco 49ers. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-lunar-90-sp-espana.html .
