Winter Olympics: Shiffrin wins gold in giant slalom

Gionta gears up for games

As it turns out there was another individual on that 1936 British team that would go on to play a role in a controversial Olympic ice hockey event that involved a player from Port Arthur - their manager John (Bunny) Ahearne. These two teams are constantly battling for top finishes and keeping games close on the world's biggest stages.

"We hit a lot of posts, we had a lot of chances and we're not going to worry about the scoreboard", USA coach Robb Stauber said.

Slovenia's Jan Mursak tied the game with 97 seconds left in regulation and his goalie pulled, then scored the game victor 38 seconds into overtime to hand Team USA a stunning 3-2 loss in the preliminary round at Kwandong Hockey Center.

"I always expect a lot of shots against the USA, but I think we did a great job keeping the shots to the outside", Lacasse said.

USA captain Brian Gionta said the team just needs to learn to finish games.

Team USA skated fast, forechecked aggressively, got rock-solid goaltending and scored twice. The biggest challenge for the US then, now and potentially moving forward, is cashing on its offensive chances.

Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford ended a dry spell for Canada in pairs figure skating, capping their final Olympics with a bronze medal on Day 6 of competition at the Pyeongchang Games. Much will possibly be learned about this Canada team on Thursday, and how competitive it can be at the 2018 Games. Four years ago, the United States suffered a heartbreaking loss in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, blowing a two-goal lead late in the game and losing in overtime, watching their Canadian rivals celebrate once again.

Canada led 4-0 six minutes into the second period, chasing Swiss starting goalie Leonardo Genoni. It's one of the best parts of the game. It's just finding a way. The U.S. outshot Canada 45-22 in another Olympic showing of offensive opportunities lost. Despite the volume of rubber sent her way, the third Canadian goalie to get action at these Games suggested the workload wasn't as onerous as you might think.

Slovenia, ranked 15th by the International Ice Hockey Federation, got on the board in the third period when Blaz Gregorc threaded a wrist shot through a crowd in front of USA goalie Ryan Zapolski.

Canada defeated the U.S. in women's hockey at the 2018 winter Olympics while most of you were sleeping. She brought the puck down the left wing and kept looking to center it.

"It's going to pay off", Stauber said. "I think it's up to us". "We needed it from everybody and I thought we got it from lots of guys". OAR might be one of the more talented teams in this years Olympics, but they now sit in last place with zero points after their disappointing loss. "I think they're some fans in Canada that are disappointed the National Hockey League players aren't playing", he said.

As the seconds slowly ticked down in the final frame, the ice seemed to tilt in Slovenia's favor as the team spent more time in the American end. Ironically the team representing Great Britain featured a number of players with Northwestern Ontario connections, including players Gerald Davey of Port Arthur, Johnny Coward of Fort Frances and the coach Percy Nicklin from Fort William. "It's the two giants of the world colliding". We have to get our sticks there.
