article imageCanada triumphs over the U.S. in men's Olympic hockey semifinals

By Michael Thomas     Feb 21, 2014 in Sports
The Canadian men's hockey team will try to win gold in two consecutive Olympics after it triumphed over its American rivals with a 1-0 victory Friday.
Canada will face Sweden this coming Sunday at 7 a.m. EST for a chance at gold.
The one goal came courtesy Jamie Benn, who scored a one-timer off a pass from Jay Bouwmeester.
“Their goalie, you’re not going to beat him with a lot of clean shots,” said Bouwmeester. “It’s lucky Benny got a stick on it.”
Of course goalie Carey Price was no slouch either, shutting out the American team and making 31 saves.
“This is huge,” said Canadian forward Corey Perry. “This is what we were put together for and this is why we’re here. Everyone wants to win. We’ve got that one chance on Sunday and we’ve got to make it count.”
The Boston Globe said the American team played well, but didn't have many scoring chances.
Canada scratched defenceman P.K Subban on defence and the injured John Tavares at forward.
The U.S. will face Finland for a chance at the bronze medal on Saturday.
