Canada beat the U.S. 3-2 in February’s Olympic women’s hockey final in Beijing.

The 2021-22 Rivalry Series was cut from eight games to six because of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the final two games in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alta., called off in January.

Canada posted a 4-1-1 record ahead of the Olympic Games.

Canada also edged the U.S. 3-2 in overtime to win last year’s women’s world championship in Calgary, which snapped a run of five straight world titles by the Americans.
