PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) - Jocelyne-Lamoureux Davidson has set the Olympic hockey record for the fastest consecutive goals by a man or woman, helping the United States shut out the Russians 5-0. Lamoureux-Davidson scored 6 seconds apart in the second period.

According to the International Ice Hockey Federation, that topped not only the mark previously held by Caroline Oullette of Canada at 16 seconds in 2006 against Italy in Turin but also the men's mark of 8 seconds apart set by Carl Goran Oberg of Sweden in 1960 at Squaw Valley.

A three-time Olympian and former NCAA hockey player for both the University of Minnesota and University of North Dakota, Lamoureux-Davidson also had an assist on the United States' first goal by Kacey Bellamy. Lamoureux-Davidson started a three-goal second. Gigi Marvin and Hannah Brandt each had a goal.

Up next for the Americans is an early showdown with their biggest rival on Thursday against Canada to wrap up the preliminary round.
