Czechs win 3-2 in shootout over Team Canada at Pyeongchang Olympics

Hosts impress in debut as Czech Republic edges South Korea

The Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation scored a 4-0 men's hockey victory over the United States on Saturday to win Group B at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Maybe the Canadians will get some help from other teams, but if they don't advance straight to the quarter-finals after the preliminary round, they will have to play a qualification game to earn a spot in the quarters.

Canada have outscored their opponents 11-2 so far and have the competition's second-highest scoring efficiency at 10.68 percent, just behind Switzerland who topped Group B. Noreau actually beat Francouz with Canada's final shot but the puck bounced off the goalpost. But his good run came to a crashing halt against the dominant Swiss, who scored five goals on 27 shots against Dalton - sending him to the bench in favor of Sungje Park, who surrendered two goals on the seven shots he faced.

The workers found a man - later determined to be Evans - asleep in the vehicle with a small girl in the passenger seat. At that point, the suspect gave the little girl to the police chief, telling them he had to get his ID from the auto .

"I know people will look at the 2-1 score and say we did pretty well", he said. Bourque now has three goals at the tournament.

Mason Raymond and Rene Bourque scored for Canada, which wraps up preliminary-round play Sunday against South Korea. 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.

After going down 2-1 at 13:30 of the first, the Czechs scored 25 seconds into the second period and it was a cagey, even contest the rest of the way. Get the app and get the game.

"We played hard", said Desjardins.

"It was one of those bounces that didn't go our way tonight, and hopefully we can get those bounces later in the tournament". Defenseman Chris Lee fanned on a bouncing puck to the right of the Canadian net, and Kubalik grabbed it and squeezed it between Scrivens and the post, knotting the game at 1-1.

Canada continued to wobble in the first period, harried by the Czechs in their own end. Scrivens stopped a shot by Michal Birner, but Jordan grabbed the back before pushing it into the net.

The Canadians went back on top later in the period, again on the powerplay.

The Czechs tied it up 35 seconds into the second period.

Forward Andrew Ebbett limped off midway through the third, favouring his leg after being sandwiched by a pair of Czechs near centre ice. He said he was fine afterwards. Its record against the Czechs in Olympic and world championship play fell to 13-14-1.

The win puts the Czechs atop Group A with five points, and Canada moves into second with four, having picked up a point for the shootout loss.
