(Olympics) Joint Korean team to face Switzerland in women's hockey classification match

Russians rout U.S. 4-0 in men's hockey

A large Soviet Union, hammer and sickle flag waved by a Russian fans at mid ice welcomed the US and the Olympic Athletes from Russia as they stepped on the ice at the Gangneung Hockey Centre late Saturday night.

Then, Kovalchuk hammered a slap shot with.2 seconds remaining in the middle frame to extend OAR's lead to three and prevent the USA from mounting any sort of comeback.

Against the OAR, the USA will have to channel that same approach.

Russia's hockey team apparently has carried a chip on its shoulder for the last four years.

But in the meantime, it would be foolish to funnel much emotional energy into this team, as admirable and scrappy as it may be.

The U.S. squad is competing without players from clubs in North America's National Hockey League (NHL), which announced in April that it would not schedule a break for the Olympics in the 2017-18 season.

United States of America coach Tony Granato was "furious" at Russian Federation afterward for keeping its top power-play unit on the ice with four minutes remaining, NBC's Pierre McGuire reported, according to ESPN's Greg Wyshynski. During the three games in pool play, the USA went 1-1-1 and scored four total goals, beating Slovakia 2-1 and losing to Slovenia 3-2 in overtime.

And above all, she wants people to take her seriously. "Some people think it's physiological; others think it's psychological. It was proven that Myers is not insane nor is she faking her changing accents.

"I was not going to let anyone push me around", Bourque said. When your goaltender, Ryan Zapolski, was pulled out of Finland via the ECHL, well, it's not really fair to expect Mike Richter.

"He didn't want to let me go", said Greenway, a Boston University standout who was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the second round of the 2015 National Hockey League draft.

The Russian hockey team is starting to look a lot more like the Olympic favorite everyone expected it to be. "Just first game we play good first five minutes, today we play all 60, so that was the difference". We want to practice the way we want to play in the game.

The U.S., however, has no more time. If anything, getting outclassed by Russian Federation should be a splash of ice-cold reality about what this team is capable of.

"No, no. he's our goalie", Granato said. "That pace was as good of a pace as I have seen in a long time". "I thought we skated with them, I thought we battled for every inch of ice out there".

Before the tournament, Granato was emphatic that it wouldn't take another Miracle for the U.S.to win.
