ON TOUR: The U.S. has played against Canada four times on home soil as part of The Time is Now Tour, presented by Toyota, splitting the series with two wins and two losses, accounting for its record of 2-0-1-1-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T). Both of the U.S.’s wins have come during the 2017 Four Nations Cup, which was held Nov. 7-12 in Wesley Chapel and Tampa, Florida. The U.S. went undefeated throughout the tournament, with wins also coming against Finland (8-2) and Sweden (5-0) en route to its third straight tournament championship. On the Tour to date, the U.S. has outscored Canada by just one goal, 11-10, but has outshot its rival in each of their four meetings with a total of 30 more shots on goal, 119-89. 

2017-18 SEASON: Entering tonight’s game, the U.S. stands at 5-0-1-2-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T) overall on the season, having defeated Canada in three out of six meetings. The U.S. fell to Canada, 2-0, on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Man. Alex Rigsby (Delafield, Wis.) stopped 19 of 20 shots in the loss. The U.S. also fell to Canada, 2-1, in overtime on Sunday, Dec. 3, in St. Paul, Minn.

LOOKING FOR A SPARK: In its previous two games against Canada, the U.S. put 60 shots on net, but was only able to light the lamp once on a shot from Megan Keller (Farmington, Mich.) in St. Paul. With just 46 shots on goal in those two games, Canada was able to find the back of the net four times, outscoring the U.S. 4-1. The U.S. will be looking for an offensive spark in San Jose in hopes of coming away with a victory in its final game on The Time is Now Tour. 

PRE-OLYMPIC TOUR: After falling to Canada in back-to-back matchups on Sunday (Dec. 3) at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, and Tuesday (Dec. 5) in Winnipeg, the U.S. record against Canada moved to 3-0-1-2-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T) on the season. In the pre-Olympic tour that preceded the Sochi Winter Olympic Games, the Bring On The World Tour, the U.S. finished 3-1-0-0-3 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T) against its rival.
