US dominates play in 2-1 win over Finland at women's worlds

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — Hilary Knight got her third goal in two games and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the winner to help the defending champion United States beat Finland 2-1 at the women's hockey world championships Tuesday.

Michelle Karvinen put Finland ahead 5:03 into the first period, but Knight tied it with 58 seconds left in the first and then Lamoureux-Davidson put the U.S. ahead 5:09 into the second.

Knight scored twice while the U.S. beat Canada 3-1 Monday night in its tournament opener. Canada finished second to the U.S. in last year's tournament and the Finns were third.

Meeri Raisanen made 49 saves and kept Finland in the game even as the Americans outshot her team 20-1 in the second period.

Jessie Vetter only had to make six saves for the U.S.
