🏒Women’s hockey: Thanks to yesterday’s 2–0 win, Team USA is now tied with Team Canada in the Rivalry Series. Forward Hilary Knight (because who else?) opened up the scoring in the second period and fellow forward Amanda Kessel doubled the lead minutes later.

⚽️MLS: The first round of the MLS Playoffs finished yesterday, and most notably No. 7 Real Salt Lake upset No. 2 Seattle Sounders FC in a dramatic shootout, winning 6–5 in penalty kicks. Didn’t see that one coming.
- Next up, conference semis kick off tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. ET with a Turkey Day battle between the Western Conference’s top-seeded Colorado Rapids and No. 4 Portland Timbers. Nothing fowl about this matchup.
⚽️Soccer: The 2021 Best FIFA Football Award nominees were announced on Monday, and USWNT goalie Alyssa Naeher is holding it down as the lone U.S. candidate (women’s and men’s). No. 1 on the pitch, No. 1 in our hearts and No. 1 on our Best Women’s Goalkeeper ballots.
