A frenetic crowd, the best in the tournament, greated both teams before the game and encouraged the players to show their best performance in a whole week. The Czech team entered the game better, they fired several shots at Fisher and Canadian goalie had to show her best. In the 11th minute Katerina Mrazova made two spectacular moves in their offensive zone and with a backhand move beat also Fisher. Four minutes later Mrazova added another Czech goal. She beat Fisher on a breakaway while shorthanded. 15 seconds later Jackie Jarrell got Canada withhin one goal.

At the start of 2nd half, the Czech players outplayed their opponent and earned a power play. Fisher had a lot of work to keep Canadian chances alive. Mainly Mrazova was very dangerous. It was supposed to be Canada which should play offensively, but they were under the Czech pressure. In the 30th minute Andrea Fialova rebounded a shot taken by Mrazova and Czech regained a two-goal lead again. Team Canada put in all the offensive skills left but Ludolph draw an unnecessary penalty and that was it. Team Canada tried to play with an empty net but they created no scoring chance. The Czech Republic won its 2nd gold medal in history and the celebration could started.

Donna Forbes (Team Canada coach): Czech Republic played a great game, they had a lot more on their roster with fourteen skaters and our girls just ran out of gas. They have given all they´ve got, but that´s what happens when you have nine players versus fourteen. We are very proud to be bringing silver back home, although it is not a color we have necessarily wanted.
