Feb 16, 2018, 04:53
The U.S. never gave up until the final buzzer and had several chances in the waning moments to tie the game.
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. Jan Mursak, who played 46 National Hockey League games with the Detroit Red Wings, tied the score by converting a rebound with 97 seconds left in the third period with Slovenia's goalie pulled in favor of an extra skater.
The medal was redemption for the Canadian team, which finished fourth in the relay when it made its Olympic debut four years ago. Omark, who parlayed his YouTube fame as a shootout specialist into a 79-game career with the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres, had three assists in Sweden's convincing 4-0 win over Norway.
Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway, a Minnesota Wild prospect became the first African-American hockey player for the U.S.at an Olympics, scored to build the 2-0 lead in a dominant showing, and the shots were 24-12 after two periods.
Truth be told, Rene Bourque had a greater offensive impact in Canada's 5-1 win over the Swiss in the tournament opener for both teams. In the first period, the forward received a ideal feed from Garrett Roe behind the goal to net the puck and give the USA a 1-0 lead. Robb Stauber's squad started things off with a 3-1 victory over Finland and followed it up with a 5-0 drubbing of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, while Canada made easy work of the same teams by a total score of 9-1.
Ann-Renee Desbiens posted an 18-save shutout against Russian Federation in her Olympic debut Sunday.
Team USA trailed 2-0 when the second period ended, but two-time Olympian Kendall Coyne scored quickly when the US returned to the ice. But the Americans' energy inexplicably flagged in the third, to the surprise of coach Tony Granato.
After arriving in South Korea, the Americans faced more questions about Canada than their opening game opponent, Finland.
Switzerland's lone goal came on the power play at 7:33 of the final period.
U.S. will face Slovakia next, at 10:10 p.m. ET on February 15th.
"If you don't play for 60 minutes, you put yourself in a position where you might not win", Granato said.
"If you drag this one out then. you're not going to be ready to play in a couple of days". "It's great, but we need to start looking forward to our next game versus Slovakia". After each team's first game, Slovakia is atop Group B, followed by Slovenia, the US and the Russians.
The Americans can't be happy with the result against Canada, but can be somewhat pleased with the effort - and the room for improvement.
"We've got to shoot more", Matt Gilroy said after the USA scored just twice on 36 shots against Slovenia.
The Canadian team is going to have to score by committee while the mobile defence, led by Noreau, Chris Lee and Mat Robinson, will be counted on to chip in some offence. This could set up to be and instant classic and be one of the more entertaining games of round-robin play.
Terry, the Colorado native, skated on the second line with another college phenom, Ryan Donato, and Mark Arcobello who plays for SC Bern in Switzerland.
A sense of urgency seemed to envelop the US bench as they did everything humanly possible to score, outshooting the Canadians 18-5 in the middle frame.
