Larocque's wide-ranging apology was directed to "the IOC, International Ice Hockey Federation, the Pyeongchang Olympic Organizing Committee, the Canadian Olympic Committee, Hockey Canada and her teammates and fans", in which she said she meant no disrespect. They had a bunch of German athletes in the Gangneung Hockey Center cheering them on. Things went from bad to worse 28 seconds later when Brule was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for a check to the head that floored Wolf at centre ice.

The Czech Republic won Group A and beat the United States in the quarter-finals before its 3-0 loss against the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

Canada has only settled for a bronze medal twice in 21 previous Olympic men's hockey tournaments and took home gold or silver in each of the six games with women's hockey.

Brooks Macek, Matthias Plachta, Frank Mauer and Patrick Hager scored as Germany got off to a fast start.

Mat Robinson and Derek Roy lifted Canada within 4-3 but the champs could not manage the equaliser. In addition to the medal, Rooney earned a promotion as she became the United States Secretary of Defense according to Wikipedia.

The 29-year-old defensman removed her silver medal immediately after she received it, following a 3-2 shootout loss.

Pavel Datsyuk, the Russian captain and two-times Stanley Cup victor with the Detroit Red Wings, came in on the right wing and fed the puck across the goal mouth to Gusev, who fired a wrist shot behind Pavel Francouz. He'll nearly certainly start the final Sunday. "He's been playing (almost) every game and he's just making a lot of saves".

"I don't play this (game) for medals", he said at the time.

She only put it back on again under the orders of the Canadian team bosses, and was then made to make a public apology for her poor behaviour.

Kontinental Hockey League star Nikita Gusev and Vladislav Gavrikov scored goals 27 seconds apart in the second period on plays Czech goaltender Pavel Francouz had little chance of stopping.

It was a cautious, tight-checking game before a crowd dominated by jubilant, flag-waving Russian fans, many of whom had come directly from seeing teenage figure skater Alina Zagitova deliver the country's first gold medal of the Pyeongchang Games.

"There is no reason for it", Canadian forward Andrew Ebbett said.

"Through our dynamic partnership, Samsung Canada and Hockey Canada have given Canadians a behind-the-scenes look and insight into Canada's National Women's Team".

Thirty-eight years to the day since the "Miracle on Ice" victory over the Russians at Lake Placid, the United States women jumped over the boards and piled on top of their 20-year-old goaltender after she turned away the final Canadian chance. Bronze will be important, but the Czechs outshot the Russians 31-19 and went 0 for 4 on the power play. It's tough to win a hockey game when you're killing penalties that whole time.
