Things get chippy in US-Canada hockey game involving 10 Wisconsin athletes

Things get chippy in US-Canada hockey game involving 10 Wisconsin athletes

The U.S. head into the second round with the highest number of shots in the tournament at 137, but are more than four full percentage points behind Canada in scoring efficiency. "Playing a full 60 minutes" is about as lame of a hockey cliche that exists, but for the USA team it's a mantra now after how well it played for 40 minutes before letting the game slip away.

At stake Thursday was playoff seeding, not an Olympic gold medal, although these teams nearly certainly will meet in the final for a third consecutive time and keep the championship in North America.

"It starts with defence first and I think our team was committed to that tonight", said Canadian coach Laura Schuler.

The Canadian hockey men completed the marvellous day with the kind of start they hoped for.

"It hurts", said Palos Heights' Kendall Coyne, her eyes red and her chin quivering.

At age 20, Terry is the youngest player on the USA squad. That included the primary helpers on goals by Dennis Everberg and Mikeal Wikstrand that were scored 1:22 apart in the third period to blow the game open. The officials ruled the US hadn't scored, marking Team USA's first loss in these Games.

Both Canada and the US had already booked their trips to the semi-finals on February 18 with wins in both of their other preliminary round games. "They're not going to be pretty goals but we'll work hard and hopefully make our country proud".

Looks Like Ed Sheeran Will Perform at the Royal Wedding
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was among those to welcome the royals to the palace as part of their final public event of the day. And perhaps because of its close proximity to Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace, the Royal Family felt it keenly as well.

Roy understands that with the mixed bag of players on this team, NHL-hardened types like himself and Bourque will be counted on for a bigger role. "We spent the last four years preparing ourselves for these Games and the number one thing for our team is we focus on ourselves". Defenceman Rob Klinkhammer, a physical presence at the other end, rang one off the post late in the period.

"It's always a battle, especially playing the U.S.", Agosta said.

"Tournaments are about getting better each and every game and learning from what happened", he said when asked if he will change his approach to the rest of his team's preliminary round games, "so I think more the mindset of realizing it's going to take 60 minutes to close out any team in a tournament like this". Both teams are 2-0-0 heading into the final game before the quarterfinals begin. It's not enough to have beaten Canada in the three World Cups since Sochi - these women want a gold medal, something that has eluded the United States for 20 years now and counting, a run of four straight Canadian goals since Salt Lake City in 2002. The United States will have an appointment with the victor of Finland vs. Sweden.

As the PyeongChang Games continue, Team USA is likely to meet its northern neighbor again, possibly even when it matters most - in the gold-medal game. But the Americans' energy inexplicably flagged in the third, to the surprise of coach Tony Granato. "It's the two giants of the world colliding".

The United States got overall fine goaltending from 20-year-old Maddie Rooney, who stopped 21 shots in the loss on Wednesday.
