Canada defeated in a shootout

Чехи обыграли хозяев Олимпиады в хоккей

Canada's Wojtek Wolski scored first in the shootout, but was matched immediately by Koukal.

Although Canada won the shots battle by a 33-21 margin, Czech goaltender Pavel Francouz made 31 saves and allowed just one goal in the shootout en route to victory.

"I've done that before, I thought it was going in", Noreau said. "Like if you give everything you've got, then what happens happens and you move onto the next game and you look for some adjustments and you come back ready".

Fitting, perhaps, that Saturday's misstep came 20 years after one of the most crushing losses in Canadian Olympic hockey history, the semi-final defeat to the Czechs that also came via the dreaded shootout. "We were more lucky today".

The loss was the Canadian men's first at the Games since Vancouver 2010 when they lost 5-3 to the U.S.in preliminary-round play. Each team killed a penalty in the third period on the way to over-time.

He had, however, won the last five duels and eight of the last 10. They played the Czechs 2-1.

Ultimately DUP and Sinn Féin will have to get back to talks
DUP leader Arlene Foster says there is "no current prospect" of a deal to restore the power-sharing Executive at Stormont. If direct rule were imposed, it would be for the first time since 2007, when Tony Blair was prime minister, the BBC says.

Canada drew first blood on the powerplay early in the first period.

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. Neither team found the back of the net in the second period, and despite multiple power plays for each side, the scoring drought continued well into the third-largely thanks to Dalton's efforts. Rene Bourque, who played 12 seasons in the National Hockey League, tapped in a rebound on a shot from the point by Noreau with one second remaining on a holding penalty to Jakub Nakladal.

The Czechs have once again created equal, in the beginning of the second twenty. Scrivens stopped a pair of shots from Roman Horak and Michal Birner, but couldn't contain the rebounds, and former Carolina Hurricane Michal Jordan snatched the loose puck and went top shelf.

Canada started the game with a record of 13-13-1 against the Czech Republic at the olympic Games or the world Championship of hockey. 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.

"Unfortunately the puck jumped over my stick", Robinson said.
