OTTAWA - After spending four days in the midst of some of the country's finest soldiers, Canada's women's hockey team is in Ottawa and ready to go to battle.

The team left Petawawa on Saturday afternoon, stopping in Pembroke for an 8-0 exhibition shellacking of Sweden.

Now, it's down to business. Canada opens its world championship schedule with a Tuesday night game against arch-rival U.S.
