One of the most exciting moments so far is when team USA player, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, made Olympic history by scoring two goals in six seconds against OAR.
Seriously, check out that second goal - with a misdirection/fake, and a backhand - that was SICK. I am reminded of Sydney Crosby, who happens to be the best hockey player in the world right now..@usahockey's Jocelyne Lamoureux has made Olympic hockey history by scoring two goals in just six seconds! 🇺🇸 https://t.co/q75WUVWI8y pic.twitter.com/mhQojGRf9m— NBC Olympics (@NBCOlympics) February 13, 2018
...but I always knew this about women's hockey. It's every bit as technical, and full of finesse compared to the male counterpart. Female players are demonstrating an extraordinary level of skill these days. For example, remember that one time, at the NHL All-Star Skills Competition, where Hilary Knight showed us how she could hit five targets in <14 seconds? That would have placed her third among the men. Brian Boyle was even intimidated to follow her.
I'm not saying women's hockey is better than men's - I LOVE watching men's hockey! But women's hockey is super-fun to watch, too, and I can't get enough of it.
