There isn't another athlete in sports that can claim to own an opponent like Canadian forward Marie-Philip Poulin owns the United States. Her second-period goal to give Canada a 2-1 lead was her fifth goal in three Olympic gold medal games against Team USA. She scored Canada's two goals in their 2010 win in Vancouver. She scored the game-tying and game-winning goals in their 2014 win in Sochi. So she might not be done tonight, as Canada is 20 minutes away from an unprecedented fifth straight gold medal. No big deal for Poulin, who is 26 and has already had a Hall of Fame career.

In Tobias Rieder, the Los Angeles Kings are getting a speedy winger having a curiously underwhelming season, despite being in a contract year and headed to restricted free agency. His 5-on-5 point production (0.259 per game), possession metrics and high-danger chances are all down. As Arizona Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said earlier this month, via ArizonaSports.com: "He's got to get inside the dots. He just hasn't really done much." That said, the Kings didn't give up much here in goalie Darcy Kuemper, getting Rieder and goalie Scott Wedgewood in return; with Arizona retaining 15 percent of his contract, it's worth the chance that Rieder rebounds on a clear playoff contender.
