Puck drops at 7 pm ET on NHL Network as the team plays on home soil for the first time in over a year

SEATTLE, Wash. – Following a 2-1 victory in Kamloops, B.C. on Thursday, Team USA looks to keep to its winning ways, taking on Canada in game three of the 2022-23 Rivalry Series in Seattle, Wash. at Climate Pledge Arena. Puck drop is set for 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET) and can be viewed live on NHL Network.

Tickets are still available for purchase via Ticketmaster.

This marks the first game for the Women's National Team on U.S. soil since Dec. 17, 2021, when the team hosted Canada in St. Louis. After the tilt in Seattle, the series will stay in the U.S. with games set to be played in Las Vegas (Dec. 17) and Los Angeles (Dec. 19). 

Last Time Out

Team USA scored two unanswered goals to earn a 2-1 victory over Canada on Thursday. Just 1:12 after Canada's Marie-Philip Poulin capitalized off a penalty shot opportunity in the second to give Canada a 1-0 lead, Kendall Coyne Schofield (Palos Heights, Ill.) redirected a shot five-hole to knot the game at one. With 6:36 remaining in the third, Alex Carpenter (North Reading, Mass.) stuffed a rebound in the net, giving the U.S. the go-ahead tally. Maddie Rooney (Andover, Minn.) recorded 19 saves in net.  

Today's Matchup

Today's meeting between the U.S. and Canada marks the third game of the 2022-23 Rivalry Series and is the third matchup between the two teams in five days. The U.S. currently leads the series 2-0 following a 2-1 victory in Kamloops, B.C., and a 4-3 shootout victory, the first shootout in Rivalry Series history, in Kelowna, B.C. on Tuesday. 

In the Rivalry Series

Following Thursday's victory, the U.S. holds a 5-2-1-2 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record over Canada all time in the Rivalry Series. Canada won the 2018-19 Rivalry Series by the 2-0-0-1 record, while the U.S. won the 2019-20 Rivalry Series by the 3-1-1-0 record. 

Home Sweet Seattle

At the beginning of the Rivalry Series, the U.S. Women's National Team spent three days in Seattle before heading to Canada, and returned to the city on Nov. 18 with two wins in tow. Throughout their time, the team has practiced at Kraken Community Iceplex, the home facility of the NHL's Seattle Kraken, and been involved in numerous community appearances, autograph sessions, and youth clinics.
