Team Canada through to men’s Olympic ice hockey final in Sochi


by Asif Hossain

February 21, 2014, Sochi Russia (ISN) – A second period goal from Jamie Benn was the difference in a hard-fought men’s Olympic ice hockey semifinal match that saw Canada beat USA 1-0.

The goal came 1:41 into the second period, when defenceman Jay Bouwmeester passed the puck low and hard toward the net. Benn was able to extend and put a blade on it, redirecting past USA netminder Jonathan Quick.

Carey Price picked up the shutout. Canada will now look to repeat as Olympic men’s hockey champions against Sweden on February 23 at Sochi’s Bolshoy Ice Dome.

More to come.
