“We played probably 18 minutes of really hard-nosed USA hockey, so we’ve got a ways to go,” Stone said after Canada built a 3-0 lead and absorbed the USA’s late two-goal counterattack. “We kind of floundered a little bit early on but we’ll get there,” Stone said. “The good news is we came on as the game went on. We scored two goals, we put a ton of pressure on them at the end We need to start faster.” Canada had the edge in offensive zone time in a scoreless first period, netted two goals in the second and pushed the lead to 3-0 early in the third. The USA broke through with a two-player advantage power play goal at mid-third, cut the deficit to one with 5:31 remaining and drove hard to the finish. Those final minutes included not only several good USA chances but a skirmish that earned two players on each team five-minute roughing majors and game misconducts after USA forward Jocelyne Lamoureux collided with Canada goalie Shannon Szabados at 16:53. Szabados sprawled on the ice and her teammates came to her defense, setting off a lengthy tussle in the corner. “It happens from time to time,” said longtime Canadian team member Hayley Wickenheiser of the scuffle, recalling a 2010 incident. In the first period, Canada had a 5-4 edge in shots that failed to reflect its territorial control. The USA’s game was disjointed but the Americans’ speed still led to a couple of quality chances that Szabados (15 saves) rejected. Ouellette sent Canada into a 1-0 lead at 4:16 of the second, converting Jayna Hefford’s cross-slot power play pass. Only 1:21 later, Bailey Bram knocked in Canada’s second goal during a goal-mouth scrum.

The case for CanAmerica: Here’s how a U.S.-Canada merger could work

"A merger makes good business sense," says Diane Francis, author of "Merger of the Century: Why Canada and America Should Become One Country."

business could raise as much as 8 billion pounds. Toronto-Dominion is one of a number of parties to have been linked with a takeover of the business, but Chief Executive Ed Clark dismissed the idea in February, saying that a deal would not meet his bank’s stated criteria for acquisitions.

Canada’s TD Bank plots £8 billion raid on RBS U.S. arm: paper

I think that investing should only be done with one test in mind, and that’s reciprocity. If the Chinese can buy Smithfield Foods, then the Americans can buy the Chinese company that wants to buy Smithfield — but we can’t. It’s all one-way … and they’re doing that everywhere. It’s like, ‘Heads, I win. Tails, you lose.’ ” Ms. Francis imagines a half-dozen ways a merger could take place — how the United States might buy out Canada, Louisiana Purchase-style, or set up resource funds to pay dividends to Canadian citizens. Politically, Canada’s provinces might seek entry as U.S. states — or perhaps as a commonwealth if Quebec wished to preserve a government of its own. They could form a federal union, a la unified Germany, create an overarching council (the Swiss model) or establish a coordinating government (the EU model). Ms.
