Feb 16, 2014; Sochi, RUSSIA; Canada goalie Carey Price (31) makes a glove save against Finland in a men's preliminary round hockey game during the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games at Bolshoy Ice Dome. Mandatory Credit: Scott Rovak-USA TODAY SportsAnother day, another Team Canada hockey win over the United States.

First it was the women's team winning the gold medal game yesterday, and now the Canadian men have won in a semifinal matchup against the United States, sending Canada on to the gold medal game and leaving the USA hoping to salvage bronze.

Jamie Benn scored the only goal for Canada, while Carey Price scored all 30 shots he saw to preserve the shutout.

USA goalie Jonathan Quick played very well also, making 36 saves, but it wasn't quite enough as Canada played dominant defense for the win.

Congrats to Canada, who will now play Sweden in the gold medal game on Sunday. They're guaranteed no worse than silver.

The United States will play Finland tomorrow for the bronze.

There's one player on Canada that I'd like to see with two broken legs, so Go Sweden!

Gah! There's too many players I love all spread out. Yea, I'd like to see him win too. Win-win either way, I guess.

Finally got home from work!  Saw part of the first period, most of the second period and heard the third.  I am shocked at the number of people who actually didn't know which players were which on the US and Canadian teams, although they were all cheering

Two local restaurants are opening at 5am on Sunday so patrons can attend the party atmosphere.  I'll just set my alarm......
