Team USA beats Canada 3-2 to win women's world championship

Brianna Decker, Megan Bozek and Amanda Kessel scored for Team USA as they beat the Canadians 3-2 to claim gold at the 2013 IIHF women’s world championship in Ottawa.

Courtney Birchard and Caroline Ouellette scored for Canada, which was outshot 30-16. Jessie Vetter picked up the win for the U.S., while Shannon Szabados took the loss for Team Canada.

This year’s victory for the U.S. serves as a revenge for last year when Canada topped the U.S. 5-4 in overtime in the 2012 tournament held in Burlington, Vt.

This was the 15th time the U.S. and Canada have met in final in the 15 years since the tournament debuted in 1990. Canada has won 10 times.

In the bronze medal game, Russia defeated Finland 2-0 to win its first medal in tournament history.

Finland's Noora Raty was named the tournament's all-star team goaltender behind a pair of Canadian 'D', Meghan Mikkelson and Catherine Ward. At forward, Marie-Philip Poulin and Jennifer Wakefield from Canada were joined by the U.S.'s Brianna Decker.
