5 keys to Team USA men's hockey winning Olympic Gold

5 keys to Team USA men's hockey winning Olympic Gold

The women's gold medal game between the USA and Canada at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi is considered by many hockey experts as one of the most thrilling women's ice hockey games to have ever been played.

The team held its own at a recent Olympic tune-up tournament in Russian Federation, never allowing more than five goals in a game and never allowing themselves to be shut out as they took on Canada, Sweden and Finland.

"I think the rivalry between Canada and the US has been there since the inception", said Shuler, who played for Canada in the 1998 Games.

Boston College head coach Jerry York directs his team during team practice for the NCAA men's college hockey Frozen Four tournament Wednesday, April 9, 2014, in Philadelphia. Slovenia is a non-factor, Slovakia is a mediocre underdog team, and Russia is, well, Russia. He went on to play for the United States National Development Program before committing to Boston University.

It's a new challenge for the 39-year-old Gionta, the oldest member of the team that will represent the U.S.at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

"It's really exciting, for all of that", Slater said. I've got my phone charged charged up and plan to take some videos tonight. "To say I'm an Olympic athlete is an incredible honor". The NHL decided not to participate in PyeongChang for the first time since 1994. It's an opportunity to start the Olympics on a high, and potentially build up momentum they can carry into the rest of the games. "It was probably the greatest team I ever played with in terms of guys with a common goal and objective".

The NHL wanted the International Olympic Committee to insure its players during the tournament, as it did in Sochi. If you want to see Team USA medals, check out the women's giant slalom on Monday and slalom Wednesday. "Every single person on our team brings so much to our locker room", team captain Meghan Duggan said. Who you hang out with.

"I think that is what people will latch onto quickly with this club".

The Olympics will elevate Datsyuk's august position in Russian hockey history.

That includes former Kitchener Rangers captain Derek Roy.

Yoges said he'll open early for the hockey semifinals and finals, and is toying with offering a breakfast buffet to lure in crowds.

"I have left Detroit", Datsyuk said. "And said to myself, 'I made things happen'".

One of the younger players for the United States is undeterred by Russia's strength.

"I never thought it would come this soon, like before I graduate from college", he said. "But the opportunity has presented itself, and I'm going to take full advantage of it".

Greenway, 20, told his mother about going to an ice hockey prep school when he was 12.

What does USA Hockey look like?

The great Red Wings defenseman became the role model for the 21-year-old mainstay on the blue line.

Burke said the stories behind the players who are seizing the moment to play in the Olympics will also be a draw to fans.

Coach Tony Granato's American team was put together with players from European professional leagues, the NCAA and American Hockey League.

Mistakes are made in hockey.

"Her ability to recover is really nearly unlike anything I've ever seen".

This time around, though, numerous best Russian and European players - at least those now in the National Hockey League - won't compete for their respective countries, either. "We are not far off, at all, and certainly our goal is to be at our best at the Olympics". "It was weird. But I think we'll be more ready, ready to compete as much as necessary". "The only games that matter are the ones that lie ahead". I had to tell them to hold on and pump the brakes a little bit, cause the team's not announced yet...

"I think it's more of a focus on improving". And to be able to compete more times at the Olympics, I'm definitely not going to argue against it.
