CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Hilary Knight had two goals and an assist to break Cammi Granato’s U.S. points record in women’s world hockey championship play, helping the Americans beat Japan 10-2 in the quarterfinals. Knight tied Granato at 78 points with a goal in the first and broke the mark with an assist in the second. Knight added her record 47th goal in the third. The eight-time world champion trails only former Canadian stars Hayley Wickenheiser with 86 and Jayna Hefford with 83. The five-time defending champion United States will face Finland on Monday in the semifinals in a rematch of the Americans’ 2-1 shootout victory in the 2019 championship game in Finland the last time the event was played. Canada will play Switzerland in the other semifinal.
