February 13, 2014 (ISN) – Men’s hockey has won the first game of their 2014 Olympic tournament, 3-1 over Norway on Thursday evening. In the second period, a Shea Weber tally preceded Jamie Benn’s game-winning first Olympic goal, which pushed Canada out to the 2-0 lead.
With the score 2-1 in the third, Drew Doughty re-strengthened the Canadian margin by driving the slot and lifting a back-hand over the shoulder of Norway’s Lars Haugen.
Canada’s next game is Friday night against Austria.
