The International Ice Hockey Federation said that was faster than the previous record of eight seconds set by Sweden's Carl Goran Oberg in 1960 at Squaw Valley.

She added that their goal is to bring home the gold, and if they play their best, the sisters "truly believe we can come out on top".

On the ensuing face-off, two OAR defenders misplayed the puck and No. 17 converted a breakaway to give the US a three-goal advantage and create the memory of a lifetime.

The second was more a showcase of Lamoureux-Davidson's game-breaking skill.

Since the inaugural Women's World Hockey Championships in 1990 every tournament has been won by either the USA or Canada. Archrival Canada also knocked off Finland and OAR by a 9-1 aggregate, so the Americans' runaway victory was needed if only to boost confidence before renewing their rivalry with Canada on Wednesday (10 p.m. ET, NBCSN). However, she would eventually score her first Olympic goal late in the third period. Lamoureux-Morando fired a shot through traffic from the right circle. Off the ensuing faceoff, the puck wound up in the skates of two Russian players and she poked it away to give herself a breakaway. In the second period, United States of America held a 24-7 shot advantage. The three-time Olympian looking for her first gold medal is just happy to give the Americans a bit of a boost.
