Olympics live stream: Watch men's curling gold medal USA vs. Sweden online

Vasili Koshechkin recorded a shutout to lift the Russian men past the Czech Republic 3-0 on Friday, giving them a chance at their first Olympic gold medal in men's ice hockey for more than a quarter of a century.

But the US took a 1-0 lead on a Hilary Knight tip on their third power play, after Canada's Sarah Nurse retaliated and slashed an American stick.

"Everybody talks about 1976 and winning bronze medal, and now for the next 50 years they're going to talk about us", German defenseman Christian Ehrhoff said.

John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes did win mixed doubles gold in Pyeongchang in its Olympic debut.

"It's our dream and we're allowed to dream", said Sturm, who played 14 National Hockey League seasons before moving into coaching. "We all knew she had it". "We feel like we're a better team than we showed in the playoffs and it just sucks that we couldn't pull it out when we needed to". She has since released a statement saying she wishes she could take it back. But it is what it is. Though it was the second period where things really heated up.

Kennedy and Laing were only a little better at 75 per cent while Hebert could not be faulted for the final result - he curled 100 per cent.

But Canada woke up in the fourth.

The goalie who took the year off from college at Minnesota-Duluth had outdueled three-time Olympian Shannon Szabados, who was among those who prefer overtime over a shootout to settle such an important game. With the Swiss sitting four, Koe cleared out three of them.

The strike has gained support from Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and other lawmakers from his party. It is incredibly detrimental to our learning and I believe that it is hugely selfish of the teachers".

Canada's struggles returned in the sixth. "One of our goals was to come out and be ourselves, and we did that". Germany kept the momentum, pressuring Canada and scoring again about four minutes later.

Robinson's goal, capping a two-on-one with a nifty backhand, cut the deficit to 4-2 at 2:42 of the third.

"I think you make your own breaks, and we didn't put enough ends together", said Canadian second and three-time Brier victor Brent Laing.

"It makes me want to work harder obviously, and just like push myself more", said Ella Chilson, who is 14-years-old and a Forward. As the PyeongChang Games start to wind down, curling fans are getting wound up all over the internet. "So we're still not happy with the outcome and never will be". Still, the gold medallist from 2010 said they just came up against a hot Swiss team.

Plachta made it 2-0 at 3:21 of the second period as Germany took advantage of a defensive miscue.

"I don't know. I don't know what to say".

"I don't feel disappointed in our effort or the guys". Sweden beat Britain 10-5 in the other semifinal game.
