Canada beats USA in overtime to win women's hockey world title

Danielle Srdachny scored the golden goal on a power play in overtime as Canada beat the United States 6-5 in the final of the Women's Hockey World Championship in Utica, New York, on Sunday.

Serdachny scored 5 minutes, 16 seconds into the extra period as Canada regained the world title after the USA won in 2023. Serdachny's goal came with one second left in the game after the United States was called for too many skaters on the ice.

In regulation, the teams exchanged goals within three minutes of each other in each period and on four occasions in total.

It was the highest-scoring match between the two rivals since the USA beat Canada 7-5 in the 2015 World Championship final.

Between the Olympics and Worlds, 12 of the last 14 finals between the United States and Canada have been decided by one goal, with nine of those 14 games going to overtime.

In Sunday's final, Canadian legend Marie-Philippe Poulin scored her first two goals of the tournament. American legend Hilary Knight scored her 65th career World Championship goal.

Alex Carpenter and Layla Edwards also scored for the United States to finish the tournament tied on goal difference with six goals each. In November, Edwards became the first black woman to play for the senior national team.

Canada and the United States have won every world title since the tournament's inception in 1990 — 13 for Canada (including the first eight) and 10 for the United States.
