"His commitment, it isn't just - he's not just showing up and, you know, standing on the bench".

And there is nothing in the sporting world today - nothing as rivals - that compares to Canada and the United States playing women's hockey.

We will have live updates, scores and highlights throughout tonight's much-anticpated Canada-USA Winter Games clash from Pyeongchang.

Even though Team USA led 2-0 heading into the third period, Slovenia powered back to tie the game with fewer than two minutes remaining in the final period. NHL players in the Olympics is good for hockey and good for Olympics. One snapshot of what makes these matchups so magical.

Or at least that was the message he was hoping would permeate through his locker room should the USA face Canada again, in a week, with Olympic gold on the line. "He loves the game of hockey more than probably anybody else I've ever met ... he's a nut that way".

Donato was selected by the Boston Bruins in the second round of the 2016 draft, and he could be a key player for that team as soon as next season. "Early on, it was unhealthy".

Gionta's job just got a lot tougher after such a bitter defeat. "He's a guy you want on your bench".

Team Canada doesn't tend to lose at the Olympics. But the team stopped short of carrying the momentum throughout the third period and overtime to secure its first win. "They're pretty honest about that on both sides, so I think the USA-Canada game will be terrific once it gets here". With Megan Keller in the box for interfering with Poulin, Natalie Spooner in her 100th global game spun and hit Agosta in the slot with a backhanded pass. Agosta's shot went off goalie Maddie Rooney's glove and in for the goal.

It was a game Canada was expected to win for sure, but with so many question marks and so little time to prepare it was an impressive debut.

The U.S. doubled up Slovenia in shots after two but couldn't pull away and increase its margin of error. Two of the last three world championships have gone to overtime.

Canada won 23 of 30 faceoffs in the first 40 minutes.

No kidding. "That third period", O'Neill said, "is something we need to learn from". Maxim Noreau had a goal and an assist for Canada, which is considered one of the favorites in the tournament being played with National Hockey League players for the first time since 1994. They vacation together. They work together. "It doesn't matter what league I'm playing in".

Both teams played with a physical edge and delivered several big checks throughout the contest; a style that favored the experienced Canadian players. "That's what's happening here". Trying to play a fast game.

Ceresnak told reporters after the game that the victory is just the first surprise in a tournament full of the unexpected, per Reuters' Gabrielle Tetrault-Farber.

He knows he is getting a great opportunity in Pyeongchang.

Eventually, Greenway wanted to take his game to the next level. Just not every year. Rooney was in net for all three of the American wins over Canada last fall. "I wouldn't say it's frowned upon, but some wonder if you'll come back and play after kids". "We'll take that any day". "We haven't seen Team USA since December and they've gotten better but so have we".

Favourite or underdog, the designation is basically meaningless now.
