In action: The IIHF Women’s World Championship (WWC) started Friday (and ICYMI, read our primer here), and the red and white superstars are atop the Group A leaderboard after two wins. 

  • Last night’s 5–1 win over ROC was slow to start, but a beauty snip from Sarah Fillier started the scoring, and Canada never looked back. They’ll meet Switzerland — who are still searching for a win — tomorrow at 6 p.m. ET.
  • After beating Finland 3–0 last night, Canada’s archrivals, Team USA, sit in second, while the Czech Republic leads Group B.
