A very highly anticipated gold medal showdown: Team USA versus Team Canada in women’s hockey.
These two teams met earlier in the games with Canada winning 3 - 2. 7’s Nancy Chen reported that Team USA bounced back after that loss and they've been preparing for the rematch.
The Americans won the first ever women's hockey gold medal back in 1998, but the last three have all gone to Canada.
On Wednesday Captain Meghan Duggan from Danvers talked about keeping the team focused.
"Honestly, I just said to the girls, it's about us right now for the next 36 hours. I don't care who we are playing, I don't care where we are, it doesn't matter what we've worked for, is tomorrow's W, it's all about us right now, and we'll just stay focused on that," Duggan said.
A number of the players on the U.S. team have ties to Massachusetts, including Julie Chu who played at Harvard.
"This is our moment, it's not to think about what happened in the past, and not to think about ok, maybe I am young what had happen in the future, but what could we do tomorrow? That's what we are all focused on and we are so excited that we've earned our spot in that gold medal game, and now it's our turn to try to earn the gold medal," Chu said.
7’s Nancy Chen said the team is very focused on this rival match, and they are all looking forward to the big game on Thursday.
