Canada snatches a 2-1 victory against the United States

Today in Olympic History

The replica u.s. came from Kendall Coyne in the third twenty. That carried over until late into the second period when Nurse fooled US goalie Maddie Rooney with a top shelf shot instead of going for a pass across to her two teammates that entered the zone with her.

"It puts us in a great spot as far as confidence", Canada coach Lauren Schuler said. "How we can generate more and eliminate chances against us".

Canada's Rachel Homan is still searching for her first curling win at the Winter Olympics. She also tallied a goal in their game against OAR.

The victor of Group B, in this case Switzerland, would normally receive a bye as well, but must play a quarterfinal against the fourth-place team in Group A, in this case the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation, to determine who meets Canada in one semifinal.

Canada is the defending Olympic champion.

"It's a heated rivalry out there", Nurse added. She missed her last shot in the gold-medal game at the Olympics in 2010 in Vancouver.

Pak not complying with UNSC resolutions on sanctions against terrorists
Hafiz Saeed, the 26/11 Mumbai blasts mastermind, has been declared a terrorist by Pakistan, reports The signed ordinance also includes Hafiz Saeed's group and his terror organisations like Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD).

"I'm kind of at a loss for words in this moment", he said. "Today, it was about sticking with the process and I think our girls did a good job with that". But Canada goaltender Genevieve Lacasse had a part in that, with several key saves.

He certainly made his last chance count Thursday, finally getting the only downhill honor missing from an impressive career.

With her 16th goal in her fourth Olympics, Agosta moved into second all-time behind Canada's Hayley Wickenheiser (18).

Canada had two goals waived off due to a kicking motion in the final frame, and a crease violation in the opening period.

"We can play a little looser now because we came in as team number 10 (of 10)", said Denmark second Julie Hogh. "(She) pulled it through her legs, tried to do something fancy and I just watched it and pushed over and made the save. 'I'll have to look at the video'.

Roy admitted that seeing both the Russians and the US lose in upsets the previous night helped rather then hurt the Canadians, as it reminded them just how wide open this tournament looks to be.

Top cheese refers to a shot to the top of the hockey net, and Gino is a term for a goal.

Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai passes away
Morgan Tsvangirai was born on 10 March 1952 in Gutu, in the Masvingo Province in the South of Zimbabwe . He joined ZANU-PF in 1980 after Zimbabwe's independence and rose quickly through the ranks.

"It's always a battle, especially playing the U.S.", Agosta said. The 36-year-old Bourque, who amassed 163 goals for six NHL teams, has 13 in 33 games this season for Djurgardens IF in the Swedish Hockey League.

The teams squared off in a fight during a October 12, 2013, game in Burlington, Vt. after usa defenseman Monique Lamoureux bumped Canada goaltender Shannon Szabados. Lacasse stoned an all-alone Hilary Knight four minutes after faceoff.

The Americans have not taken home gold since 1998, while Canada is here looking for a fifth straight.

Despite outshooting the Canada 45-23, the US lost 2-1 in a pool play game Wednesday night at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in South Korea. Veteran Christian Ehrhoff struggled to keep up with the quick pace of play and will need to improve if his team plans to advance to the deeper stages of the tournament.

This isn't the first time Drake has found himself connected to Olympic athletes.

Ann-Renee Desbiens posted an 18-save shutout against Russian Federation in her Olympic debut Sunday.

That might not have changed internally in Pyeongchang, where Hockey Canada is set to begin play Thursday morning against Switzerland, but externally, everything else is virtually an unknown. "They're just different because they can feel this pressure, which we don't have".

Danica Patrick is at peace with her retirement from NASCAR: 'I'm ready'
