Canada defeated in a shootout

Canada secured the top seeding in the knockout round of the women's Olympic Ice Hockey tournament on Thursday, taking down the USA 2-1 and pushing the Americans into second place.

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.

Canada's three goalies, who have each played one game, have amassed the tournament's top save percentage, stopping 97.67 percent of shots against them.

Canada will take on South Korea, a fledgling program that features a half-dozen Canadians, on Saturday while the Czechs face Switzerland.

Wojtek Wolski scored for Canada but Koukal lifted a backhand shot over Scrivens to level after two rounds.

When a reporter suggested to Mike Testwuide, U.S. -born forward, that it was surprising to see South Korea play so well, the naturalized player laughed and said, "I don't know what you guys expected". Noreau actually beat Francouz with Canada's final shot but the puck bounced off the post. The Czechs, with an effective forecheck, proved to be a stubborn opponent who twice came back from deficits. Bourque has scored three goals in the two parties since the beginning of the tournament.

South Korean men's hockey players entered their first Olympic match against the Czech Republic on Thursday with a chip on their shoulders, perhaps the only group of people inside Gangneung Hockey Centre who believed South Korea could win this game.

Then there was Mat Robinson, perhaps here against the longest of odds considering he's one of just two players on the Canadian roster not to have played in an National Hockey League game. "It was the game we expected", he said. We know we have to get better. We've got a big game.

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. 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.

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

Scrivens, who had mishandled the puck seconds earlier, stopped a Michal Birner shot early in the second but Jordan banged in the rebound. "I didn't exactly fight my hardest to get out of the way".

Forward Andrew Ebbett limped off midway through the third, favouring his leg after being sandwiched by a pair of Czechs near centre ice. 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. Group play ends Sunday with the Czechs facing Switzerland and the Canadians up against the South Koreans.
