Canada's Kristen Campbell stopped 19 of 22 shots in two periods of work and Emerance Maschmeyer six saves in relief.

Eric Ward saved all five shots he faced in 29 minutes of play for the Dragons and Garrett Fuller finished out the game, making six stops.

Neither side capitalized with the man advantage, with Team Canada going 0-for-3 on the power play and Drumheller going 0-for-2.
