Josephine Pucci of Pearl River, N.Y., was a member of Team USA.
Team USA seemed to have the game in hand before Canada rallied late in the third period. Jenner scored with 3:26 remaining to trim Canada’s deficit to one goal. Poulin scored with 55 seconds left to send the game into overtime.
Team Canada defeated the U.S., 3-2, in a preliminary round game earlier at Sochi.
