There's also zero chance our women's hockey player are ever going to back down to Canada.
Thursday's game was their first meeting since Canada edged the USA 2-1 in overtime December 17 in Edmonton.
Canada celebrates after defeating the United States 2-1 during the Women's Ice Hockey Preliminary Round Group A game on day six of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Kwandong Hockey Centre on February 15, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. Canada now has three goalies who can get the job done in these games, as Szabados had 22 saves in a 4-1 win over Finland and Ann-Renee Desbiens had an 18-save shutout against the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.
Wild prospect Jordan Greenway gave his team a 2-0 lead with his first Olympic goal. The loser of that final game will get the silver medal, while the two teams that lost in the semifinals will play one another for bronze.
Truth be told, Rene Bourque had a greater offensive impact in Canada's 5-1 win over the Swiss in the tournament opener for both teams.
However, just 23 seconds into the third period speedy USA forward Kendall Coyne got past the Canadian defenders and put the puck between the legs of the Canadian netminder to cut the lead to one.
Oh, and here is John Klingberg's prediction for the tournament: "I think Russian Federation is going to be the favorite, but I think Sweden has the slight favorite over Canada and the U.S. But there are always five teams that are going to fight it out".
While Canada ended the day ahead on the scoreboard, the US tallied 45 shots compared to Canada's 23.
The Canadian hockey men completed the marvellous day with the kind of start they hoped for. Coach Tony Granato chalked it up to some mental fatigue.
Slovenia came to life in the third period.
United States of America will face Slovakia next, at 10:10 p.m. ET on February 15th.
"If you don't play for 60 minutes, you put yourself in a position where you might not win", Granato said. We'll see you again, and next time you won't be so lucky.
"Hopefully, we can start looking to the next game and surprise somebody else".
Canada went 5-1 against the Americans in a six-game exhibition series this winter, although the USA beat Canada twice to win November's Four Nations Cup tournament in Florida.
The Americans can't be happy with the result against Canada, but can be somewhat pleased with the effort - and the room for improvement. "After we scored that first goal, I think we really got that extra energy and the feeling that we can score some more". This team is ready for a breakout. "There was a little bit of nerves at the beginning, but once we scored that goal, everybody eased back and played the game".
Agosta elbowed a US defender in the face less than a minute later, but the Canadians killed off the penalty. About 10 seconds into their first shift of the game Terry set up a wide open Donato in the slot, but a bouncing puck hopped over his stick and denied the great opportunity.
The expectation is that Dahlin will play for Sweden in its Friday game against Germany, after defenseman Patrik Hersley was injured by a shot in the Norway game, playing just 3:26.
The Swedish men make their Olympic debut, and besides Rasmus Dahlin (the likely No. 1 pick of the 2018 National Hockey League draft), another Swede's name caught my eye: Carl Klingberg, the older brother of Dallas Stars defenseman and Norris Trophy candidate John Klingberg.
