Winter Olympics 2018: Canada will face Finland in men's hockey quarterfinals

20 February 2018

"On one hand it's like any other hockey tournament".

In the eight games Canada and the USA played this winter prior to the Winter Olympics, Canada started 1-3, before winning four in a row in December.

"It always is (chippy)", said Canada's Rebecca Johnston.

The U.S. won the first hockey gold in 1998 with Canada winning the next four. "It's going to be a rough game".

Since the women's hockey started as Olympic in Nagano-1998, precisely with the U.S. victory, all the subsequent gold medals were hung by the Canadians.

International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams confirmed the positive test and said it could have "consequences" in evaluating the behavior of the Russian team. "It comes down to one game; we will be ready for whatever it takes".

"Every single time we've ever faced the USA, it's been a one goal difference", Schuler said.

"Those games don't matter". "I was probably in the crib watching that game", American goaltender Maddie Rooney said. Our rookies have really come to play in this tournament so we're really excited for the final.

What VAR brings so far is confusion and absurdity and the FA need to sort this out and find a better way of implementing it. Meanwhile, what were those squiggly lines running across the pitch on TV screens? "You should all perform like that, too".

The Russians were shorthanded by two when Shokhina pounced on Stalder to force a turnover before bearing down on the Swiss goal and scooping a wrist shot high into the net.

The Americans did benefit from the officiating in the third period, though, when Haley Irwin's goal was overturned because she kicked it. Forward Meghan Duggan corralled a loose puck behind the Finland net, before hitting Marvin right in front of the net. "We looked ourselves in the mirror and figured out what we can take from it". The Americans would be notified of the review, and Duggan would undergo a hearing, usually the next day. Had we gone and I was invited, I would have been thrilled about it. Canada won, 2-1, in the preliminary round, and claimed their fifth straight victory over the Americans at the Olympics.

There is not much tactics that goes into it. "Some day I'll be able to understand that it's part of life and I'm just learning". Mowinckel, fourth after the morning run, came through to take silver as Brignone kept her first-run position to claim bronze.

"Definitely the rivalry has been there since I think I was born, so everyone's looking forward to that", said 22-year-old Dani Cameranesi. "But I'm good", Savolainen said. Once the puck drops, it's like you are on autopilot. It's the game you've been dreaming of.

"This was really a gold-medal preparation for us because they're a darn good team, and we had to be ready to play", USA coach Robb Stauber said of Finland.

"It's spectacular to see our team come out and perform that well because there was a lot of pressure", United States coach Robb Stauber said. "We're certainly aware of the women that have come before us and sure hope there's a lot that come after us".

To get the ultimate prize at the Olympics, Kelly and his Canadian teammates will have to win the equivalent of three more Game 7s, starting with a date against Finland on Wednesday (7:10 a.m. ET/4:10 a.m. PT) in the quarter-finals.
