Powered by a hat trick from Monique Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.), the U.S. women’s ice hockey team advanced to the gold-medal game with a 9-1 victory over Sweden on Monday at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Lamoureux’s twin sister, Jocelyne, picked up two assists as eight Americans had two points in the game. Also doubling on assists were Erica Lawler (Fitchburg, Mass.), Jenny Potter (Edina, Minn.), Hilary Knight (Hanover, N.H.) and Molly Engstrom (Siren, Wis.) while Karen Thatcher (Blaine, Wash.), Kelli Stack (Brooklyn Heights, Ohio) and Caitlin Cahow (Branford, Conn.) each had a goal and an assist.

The U.S. will play the winner of Monday night's Canada-Finland match for the gold medal on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. PST.
