Canada Tops USA; Will Face Sweden For Gold

Team Canada will get a chance to defend their Gold medal after they beat the United States 1-0 in the semi-finals Friday. Jamie Benn scored the only goal for Canada, while Carey Price stopped all 31 shots he faced. Both teams came out flying to start the game. This was always going to be a close game, but the speed and the passing from both teams was more exciting than any Canada had played up to this point. Canada outshot the USA 16-11 in the period but both Price and his American counterpart, Jonathan Quick, were solid in the net.

“We wanted to control the play and I thought our forwards did a pretty good job of holding it down in their end,” Benn said. “And when they did get it out, our defence was great and Carey Price had another great game.”
