I have not been following Team Canada and its exploits closely enough for long enough to be able to say with any authority what all of their mistakes have been over the years and I was not in detail-oriented recap mode while watching. "It sets a tone for the rest of the games you're playing".

But the drama has simply illuminated a major obstacle that remains for many female players, from grassroots to high-performance levels.

A costly turnover by Canada in the first period and a couple of soft goals by starter Emerance Maschmeyer opened the door for the Finns, who led 3-2 heading into the third.

The women will now make about $70,000 a year playing for the national team, and up to $100,000 depending on results. Hensley finished with 18 saves in the shut out. She denied Blayre Turnbull on the doorstep, kicked out a pad to stop Jennifer Wakefield and then got her blocker on Haley Irwin's chance from the slot. Gigi Marvin gave them a two-goal cushion early in the third, and their swarming defense shut out a high-powered offense. The American players threatened to boycott the tournament unless they could agree on a new deal that provides the American women additional compensation and equitable treatment. "We're so excited to showcase that for everybody, especially the fans here".
