Canada dropped a second consecutive contest in Rivalry Series play to the United States Thursday, falling 2-1 at Sandman Centre in Kamloops, B.C.

Alex Carpenter scored what proved to be the winner with under seven minutes remaining. Rory Guilday scored the game-tying goal for the U.S. Maddie Rooney made 19 saves in the win.

Marie-Philip Poulin recorded Canada's lone goal. Kristen Campbell stopped 32 shots for the home side.

After Laura Stacey got hooked on a breakaway, Poulin stepped up to take the penalty shot 18:14 into the second period. Poulin made good on the opportunity putting a backhanded shot upstairs to open the scoring and give Canada the lead.

The Americans defeated Canada 4-3 in a shootout on Tuesday in Kelowna, B.C. The two sides will next meet in Seattle on Sunday for the third of the seven-game series.

Canada's roster for the first three games of the women's hockey series features 16 players who won both Olympic and world hockey championship gold this year.

Canada edged the U.S. 2-1 for the world title last September in Denmark. Canada beat the Americans 3-2 in the Olympic final last February in Beijing.

Canada went 3-1-1 against the U.S. in last season's Rivalry Series, which was cut short by the pandemic.

The U.S. will host the fourth game of the series Dec. 15 in Henderson, Nevada. Remaining dates and locations have yet to be announced.
