Women’s ice hockey continues to soar in global popularity. In fact, there are many women playing ice hockey at different skill levels. Like soccer and softball, women’s ice hockey has not only churned out some of the top athletes in the world — but also several rivalries. This includes Team USA versus Team Canada, which has seen some awesome matchups and games over the years.
The Team USA versus Team Canada women’s hockey rivalry stems from their Olympic showdowns. While these matches took place every four years, millions of fans anxiously await the next meeting of these two powerhouses. This rivalry has also been compared to other sports rivalries over the years.

The next clash of these titans will occur tonight at 11:10pm (EST). You should check your local listings.
