    Canada overwhelms U.S. 5-1 in women’s world hockey showdown

    Calgary, Alberta — Jamie Rattraw scored twice and Canada overwhelmed the United States 5-1 on Thursday night in the women’s world hockey championship.

    Canada (4-0) took the top spot in Group A to set up a quarterfinal Saturday against the loser of the late Group B game between Germany and Japan. The United States (3-1) will face the Germany-Japan winner. The U.S. team features Farmington Hills’ Megan Keller, an Olympic gold medalist and four-time world champion.

    Melodie Daoust, Renata Fast and Sarah Nurse also scored for 10-time champion Canada. Ann-Renee Desbiens made 22 saves, allowing only Lee Stecklein’s goal early in the third.

    Daoust started the rout at 7:13 of first period, with the puck rebounding off the back boards and into the slot for her to hammer it past goalie Alex Cavallini.
