Canada defeated in a shootout

Ice Hockey- Winter Olympics Day 6- Czech Republic v Republic Of Korea

Petr Koukal and Jan Kovar scored in the shootout to give the Czech Republic a 3-2 win on Saturday and hand two-time defending gold medal victor Canada their first Olympic men's ice hockey loss since the Vancouver Games in 2010.

Just as they did in the 5-1 opener against Switzerland, Canada wasted little time getting on the board after Raymond re-directed a nice pass from Linden Vey just 73 seconds in.

Dominik Kubalik and Michal Jordan have provided the successes of the Czech Republic, who had defeated South Korea 2-1 in their first match.

Canada is expected to cruise past the Czechs - but given how both the United States and Russian Federation lost their opening games, no team can take anything for granted.

Mason Raymond and Bourque scored on the power play for Canada in the first period.

This brings us back to Mattis, and why he declined to directly blame Russian Federation for the incident. The refinery was held by Coalition forces, supported by American air power.

For a second game in a row, the Canada opened the scoring on its first shot.

Both Czech goals came off some scrambly play in the Canadian zone.

A win Friday night for the Canadians would go a long way towards clinching a spot in the quarterfinals ahead of their final preliminary round game against the Republic of Korea.

Unlike the unified Korean women's squad, which includes 12 players from North Korea, the South Korean men's team is not integrated and has so far escaped the spotlight cast upon the women.

The three-on-three overtime period was worth admission on its own. "Willie Desjardins has been preaching to us just stay with that process and we've got a game (Sunday), we've got to drop that and just move on". We know we have to get better. Noreau actually beat Francouz with Canada's final shot but the puck bounced off the post. Roy made some nifty rushes but couldn't finish it off, while Mat Robinson broke up a two-on-one before losing the puck on a breakaway.

The prominent jeweler has been given one week to contest the suspension, the government said, following which it will be revoked. The agency is probing if bank funds were laundered and the proceeds used by the accused to create illegal assets.

They tied the game 1-1 at 6:52 of the first when Scrivens deflected a centring attempt up in the air, Lee couldn't corral the bouncing puck and Kubalik pounced on it and slipped it home. He went down but the puck went to Noreau at the point and his shot found its way to Bourque who, finding a seam between two defenders in front, put it away at 13:30.

"I've done that before, I thought it was going in", Noreau said. The Czechs did not help their cause late in the period when Canada defenceman Chris Lee ended up in their bench, prompting an interference call.

Just 25 seconds into the second period, ex-NHLer Michal Jordan pulled the Czechs level again.

Dalton, a native of Clinton who played for the London Nationals and St. Marys Lincolns as a teen and holds dual Canada/Korea citizenship, stopped his first shot, but the puck trickled behind him and Repik whacked it into the net.

Forward Andrew Ebbett limped off midway through the third period, favouring his leg after being sandwiched by a pair of Czechs near centre ice.
