The Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation won Group B with the resounding win over the United States.

The political rivals stirred passions long before players began warming up as rowdy fans waved Russian and United States flags with chants of "U-S-A" and "Russ-i-a" - screaming that only grew louder as the game unfolded in an intense setting.

After the game, US coach Tony Granato, angered by the Russians playing their top power-play unit with only two minutes left, stormed off the ice and did not shake hands with Russian coach Oleg Znarok. The stars of the Ukrainian hockey every day comment for us played the fights and give predictions on the following match day. Muller's goal was assisted by Meier. "We took a step forward". Canada has won the last four Olympic gold medals in women's hockey and beat Team USA, 2-1, in the group stage this week, so it'll be heavily favored regardless of whether Switzerland or OAR wins.

She got a pass around the Swiss' defensive blue line and skated on her own breakaway through two defenders before beating Nadezhda Morozova with a backhand for her seventh goal and 10th point of the tournament. Slovenia's Ziga Pance made it 8-2 late. For the Russians, it was a rebound from a surprising 3-2 loss to Slovakia in the Olympic opener. They sealed their spot in the medal round with three more goals in the third.

Things tilted even further when Sergei Andronov held the puck away from US defender Bobby Sanguinetti and passed it to Kovalchuk, whose shot went under Zapolski's arm and in with 0.2 seconds left in the second.
