I shouldn't have removed my silver medal: Canadian hockey star
24 February 2018, 02:56 | Virginia Santiago
The U.S. women’s hockey team wins after wining gold against Canada
We were in the box the whole second period.
The Czech team targeted a medal here, and that remains the aim despite now facing the country that won the last two Olympic titles. Somebody will have some 'splaining to do.
The loss sends Canada to the bronze medal game against the Czech Republic while the Germans will play for the first hockey gold medal in their country's history against the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation on Sunday. These were the undrafteds and the unwanteds - the castoffs of the Canadian hockey factory.
"This team has won the hearts of all German sports fans", former national ice hockey team coach Hans Zach said.
Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir cement their ice dance legacy by winning their third Olympic gold and fifth Olympic medal. Neither team was able to end it in the extra sessions which sent the game to a shootout and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson made Canadian goalie Shannon Szabados look silly with a deke she dubbed "Oops I did it again" to score the game-winner in the sixth round of the shootout.
Games comprise 10 ends, with both teams delivering eight stones in each end. It would be one of the most, if not the most, incredible stories ever carved out on a sheet of ice.
In fact, it's only the best players who are not playing in the best league in the world. According to the IIHF, "there were 20,646 registered hockey players in Germany in 2017".
Now at the Olympics for the fourth time, Shuster clinched no worse than a silver medal with a second straight victory over Canada on Friday. "This is tough. We didn't show our best".
As Wall Street Boosts Rate Hike Bets, Fed Doubts Remain
The MSCI Emerging Markets Currency Index sank 0.4 percent to the lowest in more than a week on the largest decrease in two weeks. Palladium was down 0.1% at $1,019.25/oz and platinum was up 0.2% at $989.40/oz after touching a more than one-week low of $983.
"If you go to other places, somebody famous might live down the street, and they never get talked about". "It's like a family in there and it means a lot to be heading into the gold medal game with these guys".
Q: Having been around the world and seen the game in so many countries, how can you describe the connection between Canadians and hockey? .
Heading into Saturday's game, then, Canada has its work cut out for it.
The American team made up of Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner were 2-4 at one point in the tournament, and were facing elimination less than a week ago. There's little reason to believe this is anything more than what it is.
Russia, which has run roughshod over opponents since a lackadaisical 3-2 loss to Slovakia, beat the Czech Republic in the other semifinal earlier Friday. And there's nearly always a time where the underachieving underdog comes to the grim realization that it is playing out of its element and the whole thing comes crashing down.
Team Canada pushed back hard in the third period, pulling two goals back, but the Germans held on.
So to do what they did here (or didn't do here) would be comparable to the United Statesmen's and women's basketball teams failing to win a medal at the Summer Olympics. It could provide the ideal script for a truly stunning ending. The game is really a terrific game, it's high-pace and it's more physical than it was.

All that users will need to do is say 'Hey Siri .' In just the same way that Siri is activated on a HomePod or iPhone . Beyond that, though, we could be in for an even more substantial upgrade to the AirPods themselves later this year.
Winter Olympics: What happened while you were sleeping
The Olympics happen every four years, but it's a year-round thought process for the women on those two teams . I think I'm sort of bittersweet right now that the journey is over just because these women are incredible.

Africa women's 4th T20I called off
With a win in South Africa's tally, the series is levelled at 1-1 with one match to go which will be the series decider. However, Bhuvneshwar didn't pick a single wicket and that proved detrimental to the visitors' cause in this clash.
