Canadian men prevail in Olympic hockey tourney opener

Today in Olympic History

However, just 23 seconds into the third period speedy USA forward Kendall Coyne got past the Canadian defenders and put the puck between the legs of the Canadian netminder to cut the lead to one.

Canada came out on top in yet another classic women's hockey battle against the U.S.as the two teams clashed in preliminary round play at the PyeongChang Olympics.

That's when Bourque picked up the phone and called Sean Burke, general manager of the Canadian national team, and tried to figure out how he might make the Olympic squad.

When Agosta scored the game's first goal - finding a pass in front of the net opened by the distractions wrought by her teammates - she pumped her fists and looked to the sky. Despite outshooting Canada by an nearly 2-1 margin (45-23), US could not find that game-breaker on Wednesday night. They will play the winners of the quarter-finals which will be played on February 16 between Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

Lacasse is the third goaltender to see time so far in this Olympics for Team Canada.

What's up with the US men's team? Team USA beat Finland 3-1 before also blanking OAR 5-0. Energy management was the topic of conversation in the postmortem, as it was clear the Americans left it all on the ice at the start and the tank hit "E" by the third period. "Am I going to be able to play with my kids and normal life?'" Wolski said last week. First game ever in the Olympics. It could've been a little fatigue set in mentally because of the way that the day was. Every team wants to get better. They hadn't yet started their taper to peak for the Games. Slovakia pulled off an upset of its own in the first game, stunning tournament favorite OAR 3-2.

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.

IEA: US could lead non-OPEC oil production in 2018
Surging shale production could push USA oil output to more than 10 million barrels a day - surpassing a record set in 1970. This would shift the expiration date of the agreement from March to the end of 2018.

"We knew that was going to happen", Desjardins said of the unpredictable results.

What's up with the USA women's team? "It was a pretty special moment that they can be here and support me like that", said the 37-year-old Lee, who has played in five different pro leagues in four different countries.

The Canadian head coach had implored his team to come out with a feisty effort after seeing regression during three exhibition games earlier this month. "That's why you train", said US forward Hilary Knight, who saw a few strong scoring chances just miss in the third.

"It doesn't matter who we play - when you are playing Canada you had better be ready".

The loss to the Canadian hurt more than the Americans' pride: They're now bracketed to play the victor of Sweden and Finland on Monday, which likely means another battle with Noora Raty of Finland, a goalie capable of pulling an upset on her own.

The Swedes have done this before with young defensemen - please recall the freaky decision to dress Oliver Ekman-Larsson for their semifinal game in Sochi and then not actually give the then-22-year-old Arizona Coyotes defenseman a shift in the game.
