We scored two goals, we put a ton of pressure on them at the end We need to start faster.” Canada had the edge in offensive zone time in a scoreless first period, netted two goals in the second and pushed the lead to 3-0 early in the third. The USA broke through with a two-player advantage power play goal at mid-third, cut the deficit to one with 5:31 remaining and drove hard to the finish. Those final minutes included not only several good USA chances but a skirmish that earned two players on each team five-minute roughing majors and game misconducts after USA forward Jocelyne Lamoureux collided with Canada goalie Shannon Szabados at 16:53. Szabados sprawled on the ice and her teammates came to her defense, setting off a lengthy tussle in the corner. “It happens from time to time,” said longtime Canadian team member Hayley Wickenheiser of the scuffle, recalling a 2010 incident.

USA TODAY Sports With the United States firmly locked in the top spot and Panama needing a win, there’s no hiding that these two foes have very different mindsets heading in. But that won’t stop Jurgen Klinsmann from playing his best guys, for the most part. However, he’ll be without arguably his two best as Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley were both ruled out for the final World Cup qualifying tilts, according to Associated Press via Fox Sports . America had no trouble quelling Jamaica on Friday without these two stars in the fold, winning 2-0. But that was a much different atmosphere, as the U.S. played at home and against a foe who had no real shot at sneaking into a qualifying bid. On Tuesday, they’ll face a Panama team not only looking to get into the World Cup, but looking to reverse a two-goal deficit to Mexico in the ever-important goal differential. They won’t be looking to win, they’ll be looking to win big.
