Canada edged the U.S. 2-1 in the second game of their under-22 women's hockey series in Lake Placid, N.Y., with Gophers scoring two of the goals.
Sophomore defenseman Sydney Baldwin had the only U.S. goal to tie the score. Then, with under four minutes left, freshman forward Sarah Potomak got the game-winner for Canada.
Six other Gophers are also playing in the best-of-three series, tied 1-1 now. The third game is at 5 p.m. Saturday.
