U.S. women named team of the month by USOC after winning its fourth straight Four Nations Cup title

The United States Olympic Committee announced today that the U.S. Women's National Team has been named Team of the Month for the Team USA Awards Best of November honors on the heels of claiming its fourth consecutive Four Nations Cup title in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The U.S. won four games in five days and outscored opponents 17-5 en route to the 2018 Four Nations Cup championship. 

First, the U.S. defeated Finland, 5-1, in its opening game of the tournament. Eleven members of Team USA contributed points in the victory, highlighted by Sydney Brodt (North Oaks, Minn.), Dani Cameranesi (Plymouth, Minn.), Brianna Decker (Dousman, Wis.) and Hilary Knight (Sun Valley, Idaho), who each registered two points apiece. Then, the U.S. came out on top of a hard-fought battle against Canada with a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Hannah Brandt (Vadnais Heights, Minn.) and the game-winner from Brodt with 1:38 remaining. In its third and final preliminary round game, the U.S. defeated Sweden, 5-1, with nine different members of Team USA recording points in the victory.

The U.S. finished its campaign with a 5-2 championship win over Canada to bring home its fourth straight title. Knight scored twice and 10 other U.S. skaters registered points to help the U.S. claim victory in Saskatoon on Nov. 10.
