Ever Seen A Hockey Player Score Twice In Six Seconds? Team USA’s Jocelyne Lamoureux Did Just That
With those goals, and 13 saves from Nicole Hensley in her Olympic debut, Lamoureux-Davidson helped Team USA score the victory over the Olympic Athletes from Russia 5-0.
The three-time Olympian scored twice within six seconds in the second period to set a new Olympic record for the shortest time between goals. Sweden’s Carl Goran Oberg held the previous record, scoring twice in eight seconds during the 1960 Winter Games.
“It was pretty special,” Lamoureux-Davidson told NBC Olympics after the game. “I had no idea until after the game [that she broke the record] when someone else mentioned it.”
The first goal was set up by a shot on net by Jocelyne’s sister Monique Lamoureux-Morando (yes, it is quite the successful hockey family), while the second goal was the result of two OAR defenders misplaying the puck on the next face-off.
