MIT Olympic Update

MIT Women’s Ice Hockey coach Katia Pashkevitch scored a second period power play goal to help Russia top China 4-1 in Olympic play last night.

Pashkevitch added an assist in the third period on another power play goal, to lead the team with two points for the game. She also had four shots on goal. Russian goalie Irina Gashennikova stopped 30 shots. Russia scored four consecutive goals to erase China’s 1-0 first period lead.

Russia will play for fifth place today, while China can finish no higher than seventh.
