Marie-Philip Poulin scored the game-winning goal with just over four minutes remaining as Team Harvey's beat Team Sonnet 3-2 on Saturday at the Professional Women's Hockey Players' Association's Dream Gap Tour showcase in Collingwood, Ont.
The Canadian star is no stranger to scoring in big moments, and the crowd at Eddie Bush Memorial Arena got to see it first-hand.
With her Canadian Olympic teammate Emily Clark engaged in a puck battle below Team Sonnet's goalline, fellow Canadian linemate Jessie Eldridge freed the puck up along the boards and found Poulin, who wasted no time firing home a one-timer.

The game was a back-and-forth battle, with Team Sonnet's Brianne Jenner and Lillian Braga each responding to goals by Sophia Shaver and Savannah Harmon to tie it 2-2 midway through the third period.
Following Poulin's go-ahead marker, a Team Sonnet bench minor for an extra attacker on the ice effectively ended the game with less than a minute remaining.
Team Scotiabank shuts out Team Adidas
Earlier in the day, Team Scotiabank blanked Team Adidas 3-0 in Owen Sound, Ont., with Canadian Olympic gold-medallists Emerance Maschmeyer and Kristen Campbell combining for the shutout.
American Alex Carpenter opened the scoring for Team Scotiabank early in the first period on a shot that ricocheted in off a defender. Canada's Blayre Turnbull set the goal up by winning an offensive-zone draw and threading a nifty pass to her winger in the slot.

The goaltenders stood tall in net until halfway through the final frame when four-time Canadian Olympic medallist Rebecca Johnston unleashed a wicked one-timer from the top of the circle, popping the water bottle off the net and extending Team Scotiabank's lead.
Two minutes later, Johnston helped widen the gap even further when she centred a pass to American forward Kelly Pannek off the rush, with the puck redirecting into the net for the third and final goal of the game.
