Canada advances to men's hockey semis

Canada advances to men's hockey semis

Don't forget you all were and will always be the first.

The Americans are back in the gold-medal game for a third straight Olympics, and they will play the victor of the other semifinal between Canada and the "Olympic Athletes from Russia" on Thursday, looking to win their first gold since 1998, when women's hockey debuted in the Olympics.

The New York Times pithily demonstrated the historic dominance of Canada and the U.S.in Olympic women's hockey. There were more than a few breakdowns when Canada faced the Americans, a game they won only thanks to exceptional goaltending from Genevieve Lacasse.

Monique Lamoureux-Morando upped the ante with a breakaway and made it a nailbiter as she tied it 2-2 for the American's less than seven minutes into the third.

Indeed, all four of the Americans' lines produced goals and outshot the Finns, 38-14: Gigi Marvin's point blank shot to get the scoring started; Dani Cameranesi's two goals, one unassisted and one on on the power play; Knight's power play deflection; and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson's strike when the USA had a 5-3 power play advantage in the second. "I am just so thankful for the outcome". The U.S. split a pair of games with Canada in October, defeating its rival, 5-2, on Oct. 22 in Quebec City, Que., and then falling, 5-1, in The Time is Now Tour opener Oct. 25 in Boston, Mass. "When it comes down to a shootout it can be anybody's game". Head coach Laura Schuler's team edged out Team USA 2-1 despite being outshot 45-24. We won't know until we know.

Yet the Americans have owned the world championships, winning the last four and eight of the last 10. It's been six months of hard training leading up to this Olympics.

And, happily, this Canadian team is edging closer to their next test. Duggan said she was really happy Savolainen got up and that any decision about a potential suspension was out of her control.

Granato. She was part of this, too.

Both teams landed in the bronze medal match after losing 5-0 to a North American power. "And we play similar".

Granato watched the tournament from her family home in Vancouver.

"When I was standing there I was just so proud of them just watching them skate around salute to fans there", Korean coach Sarah Murray said. "We wanted to thank them for all the support".

Knight said the losses taught her quite a lot about herself, that specifically the 2014 loss made her realize how deep her love for the sport runs.

Do your role. Be ready for anything.

"An early St. Patrick's Day", he joked between periods of Canada's thrilling 2-1 victory. He thinks USA Hockey, the NHL and the continent's two pro women's hockey leagues could do much more.

Maybe it's because she met the entire national team in August in Oregon.

It was just as tight in the shootout up until sudden-death when USA coach Robb Stauber, a Duluth native, tapped Lamoureux-Davidson to take the next US shot.
