Canada wins ice hockey bronze against Czech Republic

Olympic Athletes from Russia advance to men's hockey final after beating Czech Republic 3-0

The Olympic men's ice hockey version of David versus Goliath takes center stage Saturday night, when the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation square off against Germany in the gold-medal game.

Saturday, the goal scorers canadians were Andrew Ebbett and Chris Kelly, two times each, as well as Derek Roy and Wojtek Wolski.

Larocque removed the medal as soon as it was placed around her neck. Everyone woke up pretty devastated just with our effort. "We feel like we have something special going here and even after the qualification we said, "Now we're going to Pyeongchang and we're gonna win gold in Korea" and maybe we are".

Canada's only prior men's hockey bronze medals came in 1968 at Grenoble and 1956 at Cortina d'Ampezzo.

With the win, Canada has now medalled at three consecutive Olympics, while the Czech Republic, who won Group A and have knocked off some top competition at the tournament, suffered the disappointment of finishing off the podium.

"We are here for one reason", Kovalchuk said.

Despite the caution, German hockey fans and German NHL players took to twitter to celebrate the win and slightly rub it in the face of their Canadian counterparts. This is something you'll remember for the rest of your life.

Macek doesn't think playing in that tournament counts as Team Canada and has committed to playing for Germany moving forward.

Canada had won the last two Olympic gold medals, though those victories came with star-studded rosters.

Little-known Czech Republic goaltender Pavel Francouz stopped all five Americans in the shootout and Petr Koukal scored as the United States was eliminated with a 3-2 loss Wednesday in the quarterfinals. We lost some games but we learned from it. "I'm very proud of my guys".

Canada gained a 3:1 lead in the first period and although the Czechs attempted to rally towards the end of the game, shooting three goals in relatively quick succession, they failed to turn the game around.

"My customers are either unaware or uninterested because nobody's talking about it", Letros said, adding that the absence of National Hockey League stars on Team Canada has likely contributed to his patrons' disinterest.

While maddening that a similar effort the previous night would have guaranteed a silver and a shot at gold against the Russians - instead, Germany will get that chance at 11:10 p.m. ET on Saturday - the Canadians showed a great deal in their bounce back. "For us, nothing really changes".

For the first time since the 1998 Nagano games, Russian players, competing this year as neutrals in the Winter Olympics, have advanced to the gold medal game.

Opening early would also put additional demands on the business, as staffing the bar for the event on such late notice from the province could require up to 25 people, he said. "It didn't go the way I wanted it to and we wanted it to, but it comes down to those things".
