CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Following a 6-1 Team USA win over Sweden on Monday, head coach Katey Stone, Julie Chu '06-07, Lyndsey Fry, Michelle Picard and Josephine Pucci will all represent Harvard as the U.S. vies for a gold medal when it takes on Team Canada at noon ET on Thursday. The game will air live on NBC, and then will be replayed at 5 p.m. on NBCSports Network the same day.

Stone, the Landry Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Ice Hockey, has positioned the United States Olympic Women's Ice Hockey team for a rematch with the Canadians after the Americans advanced past the Swedes with ease on Monday. Though the U.S. dropped a close, 3-2, decision to Team Canada on Feb. 12, the Red, White and Blue will look to skate past its archrival on Thursday.

For their parts individually, Chu and the three current Crimson skaters -- Fry, Picard and Pucci -- have helped the U.S. make its way to the gold medal game. In the 9-0 win over Switzerland on Feb. 10, both Chu and Pucci grabbed a point, each tallying an assist in the dominant victory.
