USA hockey's Lamoureux-Davidson nets two, breaks Olympic record

Team USA's women's hockey team easily beat the Olympics Athletes from Russian Federation on Tuesday, 5-0, thanks in part to a record-setting two goals scored by Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson. That had been the record for a man or a woman until Lamoureux-Davidson broke it on Tuesday.

The men's record dated back to 1960, when Sweden's Carl Goran Oberg scored two goals in eight seconds during the Squaw Valley Games.

"It was pretty special", Lamoureux-Davidson told NBC Olympics after the game.

She moved into a tie with her twin sister, Monique Lamoureux-Morando, for sixth all-time in USA scoring at the Olympic Games with 15 career points.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson had a historic six-second stretch in the second period.

Kitty Pryde Movie Coming from Deadpool Director
All of these are in development as the looming deal with Disney works its way through regulators before the sale is finalized. Interestingly enough, the news comes months after it was said Miller was developing a solo Kitty Pryde film for Fox.

"I don't know if I'll ever come close to that again", Lamoureux-Davidson said, "but we'll see". She dipped her right shoulder and feigned a forehand shot before beating Tarakanova with a backhand.

Lamoureux-Davidson took the puck off of a face-off for a breakaway. The three-time Olympian looking for her first gold medal is just happy to give the Americans a bit of a boost.

Less than three minutes later, Marvin scored on a rebound of an Amanda Pelkey shot. Bellamy scored off of a Lamoureux-Davidson assist. Bellamy fired a shot through a Monique screen to open the scoring.

Which in all likelihood makes Thursday's (Wednesday night on the West Coast) first-round game between the sport's two superpowers at Kwandong Hockey Centre a sneak preview of the Games' gold medal final next Thursday. Minnesota alum Hannah Brandt finished off the scoring in the third.

Nicole Hensley, USA: The 23-year-old goaltender made her tournament debut after Maddie Rooney started Team USA's opening game between the pipes and opened her Olympic career with a shutout, saving all 13 shots she faced.
