Korean female curling team beats Canada in surprise move

Korean female curling team beats Canada in surprise move

It was just a couple of shots here and there. The Canadians won this game by a score of 2-1 and took first place in Group А. And the Americans also advanced to the playoffs by coming in second in this group.

Germany's Aliona Savchenko and Bruno Massot won gold with 235.90 while reigning world champions Sui Wenging and Han Cong of China took silver with 235.47.

The loss to the Canadian hurt more than the Americans' pride: They're now bracketed to play the victor of Sweden and Finland on Monday, which likely means another battle with Noora Raty of Finland, a goalie capable of pulling an upset on her own.

"It's just finding a way to finish those Grade A chances that we had, and we didn't finish", Coyne said.

A spot in the gold medal game isn't guaranteed for the Americans, but neither was Kessel's return to hockey.

"I know they have a lot of guys with a lot of skill", said Canadian forward Rob Klinkhammer, who plays alongside Czech forward Jiri Sekac for Kazan Ak-Bars in Russian Federation. "But Canada is missing 200", Fischer said with a wry smile. The Olympics only raises the stakes. "At the end of the day, we just gotta get one more". "Today I am so proud and excited to have been named to Canada's Olympic Hockey Team". The United States will have an appointment with the victor of Finland vs. Sweden. "Twenty-four guys playing their first Olympic game - the hype, the long day - you use a lot of energy".

Canada captain Marie-Philip Poulin, who scored the tying and game-winning goals in the gold medal game in Sochi, noted they haven't played since Canada finalized its Olympic roster. The answer? Yes. The way that the semifinals are set up, we could be in store for a rematch in the gold medal game. "It doesn't matter what happened before".

The NHLers may be missing, but those wearing the Maple Leaf for Team Canada at the Pyeongchang Winter Games wasted little time making memories as they opened their Olympic campaign with a 5-1 victory over Switzerland on Thursday. -Canada a "great rivalry".

"They're going to come with four solid lines so we're going to have to be on our toes". Energy management was the topic of conversation in the postmortem, as it was clear the Americans left it all on the ice at the start and the tank hit "E" by the third period.

At the fifth end, South Korea earned two points to widen gap with Canada to 4-1 by pushing out two stones of their rivals.

With each team already having three points, this match will play an important role in terms of seeding heading into the knockout portion.

Thursday's game was their first meeting since Canada edged the US 2-1 in overtime December 17 in Edmonton.

Ben Scrivens got the start in the Canadian net and made 27 saves for the win.

USA coach Robb Stauber has tried to keep his players focused on only one opponent at a time, trying to ignore the inevitable game with Canada until a day away. "I don't know about that, I was the only one in there", Bourque said with a wry grin Friday after a brisk practice at the Gangneung Hockey Centre's training facility.
