Some Canadians simply uninterested in Olympic hockey

US Olympics Women's Hockey Team: See The Stars Putting The Competition On Ice

Garrett Roe: NHL disappointment opens door for Olympic glory

"It will be a good opportunity for our team to be in the spotlight and I think when we get people watching our sport, we usually can get them hooked". Then came the real fire and fury when Patty Kazmaier Award victor Alex Carpenter was left off the final Olympic roster.

Schuler and her teammates' dedication paid off when women's ice hockey was added to the Olympics for the 1998 Nagano Games.

"I don't pay attention to the outside world".

Lee is the one member of the roster never to have played in the National Hockey League. "You can not and (still) be your best".

That is the last time Canada has lost a women's ice hockey final, having won the last four gold-medal matches.

"It was wonderful", said women's hockey player Natalie Spooner, still clutching the yellow mask she was given for the ceremony.

"The tournament was surreal", said forward Dwayne Norris, who was stopped in the third round of the 1994 shootout.

Earlier in January, Johannson was on a media conference call, explaining how he went about putting together this Olympic team without National Hockey League players.

Who's the underdog? It's fair to say host South Korea, in its first Olympics in men's hockey, fits that bill, along with Slovenia, Slovakia, Switzerland, Germany and Norway.

Being at the Pyeongchang Games is reminder enough of the monumental task Stauber accepted in trying to end the Americans' 20-year gold medal drought.

"... I think I'm just anxious about this tournament right now, how I'm going to try and help my team win a gold medal, that's all I have to worry about".

"He was definitely somebody I looked up to when I was a kid", Greenway said. A scheduling snafu four years ago kept the squad from experiencing that thrill in Sochi, Russia.

"The first couple shifts you're on pins and needles", Hlushko said of the gold-medal game.

And you can't really leave it until the next evening because getting through the entire day without the results being heard over the office radio, via a bud's email, or through some other social media, seems infinitesimal.

Sean Burke, general manager of the Canadian national men's hockey team, believes people will still get behind the tournament and Team Canada due to their pride.

So much that Sanguinetti will be among a slew of second-chance players representing the United States in the Winter Olympics. "It's a very interesting dynamic where for one time in your life, you get to feel like a normal athlete and you hang with everybody", Hitchcock said.

The first addition in October was Boston College freshman defenseman Cayle Barnes. The NHL would own the tournament, so the two-week break would still be bringing revenue into the league (which could be distributed to all 31 teams). In the Olympics, just the first three shooters have to be different.

Hitchcock won gold medals in three of his four Olympics.

The U.S. begins play Sunday with a preliminary game against Finland at 1:40 a.m. CT. The NHL has already proven that a schedule can be crafted to withstand a two-week break in February, and this time there would be significantly fewer hurdles.

Over the past month, Stauber has seen improvement. These incredible ladies have practiced long and hard and are ready to show the world what they've got! Both play a similar style, and when Amanda goes to the net with a head of steam and a half-step on the defense, she is nearly impossible to catch.

"It's really sad, but I don't know what to say". I've been part of the struggles. It's not supposed to be easy.

But a late penalty opened the door for Sweden to equalize with under two minutes to go in regulation and send the game to overtime. There's a lot of pressure on this team not to break that string of success.
