GANGNEUNG, South Korea — Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson (Grand Forks, N.D.) set an Olympic record for the fastest two goals scored by a single player to lead the U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team to a 5-0 victory over the Olympic Athletes from Russia here tonight in preliminary round play at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. With the win, the U.S. secured a bye to the semifinal round on Monday (Feb. 19) as one of the top-two seeds in Group A.
