Olympics women's hockey, Canada vs. Finland live stream

Column: In Pyeongchang, opening ceremony offers a hollow promise that still feels good

Many figure the USA women's hockey team a shoe-in to face Canada for a gold medal in the final of the 2018 Winter Olympics tournament, likely without a loss on the way. "So we have an opportunity as a squad this year with the guys that are under the radar as far as global stars but I think they have a great opportunity to step forward", said Granato. Former NHL superstars Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk will lead the way against Slovakia.

Team USA is made up of a combination of AHL players, college players and guys from European leagues. The Swiss squad features the most lethal offensive threat in the tournament so far, Alina Muller, who has racked up seven points across the opening two games (five goals, two assists). "But everyone here knows the team with the most talented players doesn't win every tournament". It's a broad mix of players who otherwise would not get this opportunity.

Roughly one-third of players participating in the Olympic tournament now play in the Kontinental Hockey League, which is widely regarded as the second-best league in the world behind the NHL.

"This is a second lease on life for our hockey careers, and I think we're all re-energized by that", forward Brian O'Neill said. 39-year-old Brian Gionta is the undisputed leader of the squad with more than 1,000 career National Hockey League games under his belt, as well as a Stanley Cup victory with the New Jersey Devils in 2003. "Those are big shoes to fill, but we have that core group here".

The Americans didn't practice as an entire group until after arriving in South Korea on Thursday.

"We hope to build off this game when we play Russian Federation".

Not ideal, but Granato doesn't act concerned. Subsequently, your us citizens shaped a ring around the center ring and shut to get a success huddle. Games will still be exciting and intensively competitive. But the level of play can't possibly match having the best talent in the world on the ice. Thus that the Finns supplied a fantastic starting evaluation within a match which undoubtedly reverted to each team, even though equally teams will probably possess more essential matches at the foreseeable future. Put Granato in that camp.

"It's fantastic, I mean anytime you get a victory it's a good day", said team captain Meghan Duggan.

Arcobello, who went to Europe a year for some stability before the NHL decided not to participate in the Olympics, said he is glad he took the path less traveled because it helped him make the US national team.

"In order to be the best, you need to beat the best".
