GAME PREVIEW: For U.S. women's hockey, 'it's always revenge against' Canada

USA fell to Canada in its Feb. 13 match-up, 3-2, but the Canadians have dominated their gold-medal meetings by winning in 1998 Nagano, 2002 and 2010. They also won the 2006 meeting against Sweden.

But the Americans are out for blood and are ready to take down their northern neighbor.

"We wouldn't want to face anyone else in the gold-medal game," said forward Amanda Kessel in a recent USA Today article. "They're the defending Olympic champions so you want to play the best."

The game is live starting at 11 a.m. on NBC, but you can also watch the game live on NBC Olympics live stream.

Prior to the game, tune into NewsChannel 5 for an Olympic special at 10 a.m.
