Since that game 8 years ago they've always been on top.
i have the same memory of that game. It was cool to watch. However, the complete one-sidedeness of women's hockey is starting to wear thin. It's just as bad now as when they first introduced the sport... and correct or not, the IOC isn't happy about it. Apparently they're going to consider taking it away from the games - not that i would go that far.
