There will be no gold medal for USA men's hockey. They were shutout by Team Canada 1-0 Friday. USA will face Finland for the bronze, while Canada will play Sweden for the gold.
Shots and chances favored the Canadians in the first period but they failed to cash any in. USA took the first penalty of the game when Ryan Suter was called for holding the stick at the 12:53 mark, but the Americans managed to kill off the penalty. Team USA got their turn with the man advantage late in the period, but they were unsuccessful as well.
It was a quiet first but the scoring started right away in the second. Jamie Benn tipped home a Jay Bouwmeester shot 1:41 into the frame to make it 1-0 for Canada. USA had a couple of opportunities to even the score but they failed to convert on two powerplays in the frame.
The USA had some opportunities but still couldn't get one by Canadian netminder Carey Price in the third period. Jonathan Quick closed out a strong day in net on the other end of the ice, stopping 36 of 37 shots.

Frustrated no more
Thanks so much for the information. Let's go USA!!
Need I say more at this time?
(Using White's condescending voice of us all)
"Ryan Miller would've stopped that shot." Score all the goal you want against Slovak, Sweden, and local fed teams, but when you needed them, they couldn't get ANY!! Feel like a Broncos fan??
they own us
we just can't beat them when it comes to hockey... can't do it..
That said - what a boring game
USA STILL HAS BETTER FOOD.
what a boring game, watching it was almost as bad as listening to that dbag schopp cut everyone off that doesnt see things from his point of view.
It does not
Compare to the last Olympics. This team played heartless.
Jonathan Quick main reason this was actually a game
Sensational performance by Quick. Thank heavens he was in goal. If Miller had been in goal this would have been a humilating loss for the US. Bylsma made the absolute right decision in starting Quick for these most important games. There is no way that Miller would have been better. He simply is not as good of a goalie and please stop the similarites in play between 2010 and 2014 garbage. Miller was not playing at as high of a level as he was in 2010. Canada was a better team and they absolutely smothered this US squad to death. It was a swarm of red everytime a US player touched the puck. It's over. Now let's trade Miller and most of the rest of the team.
Don't blame miller.
You wanted mr quick and you got it. Can't wait for the next game so he can another one just slide in. Most of us Don't care anyway. If miller isn't playing who cares. And we like coach now you lost the gold for us. stay with quick, And with him in the net we hope they make a quick exit. for no medal. Now lets get all the players back. So we can make the playoffs. Oh my bag i mean get the first pick in the draft. you know the one that plays like doug gilmore. For lol.
WE STILL HAVE BETTER FOOTBALL
The right choice was still Quick
He was excellent today. If Miller was in there...he would have given up at least five.
Sabres Fan in Kingston
My response as a Canadian is to say...whew! Now, let's go for it and defeat Sweden for one more Gold Medal.
Now that it's over, let's talk trades
Cross off Tavares off your Sabres wish list. Miller's not going to the Islanders.
Tavares for Miller
.... ha, that's a hot one. One of the best players in the world for a goalie that has won exactly zero to the point where his country felt his best efforts were spent riding the pines.
Hate what Hockey has become!
Hockey has become a boring game to watch. Dump and chase with no room for a skilled player to move. Scrums in front of the net with goals being scored with deflections off players. That game today was a testament to what I mean. No doubt Canada is the best at it and as far as I'm concerned they can have it.
Funny how attitudes change
Isn't it funny that everyone is pumped and pro-USA in hockey but when they lose, the game just turned out to be boring and not worth watching. No one was saying that during the US wins!!! Sour grapes yall???
It didn't really matter the size of the ice surface was 10 feet wider in Russia. It had no effect what so ever. There was actually more boring play compared to the smaller surfaces the US and Canada has in the NHL. You wonder how the play would be on the size of Lake Erie? Good question.
I could have played goal and won. Both defenses outstanding. Take note boys, any goal scorers can be shut down by great defense. Draft Ekblad!
re: Great defense
RIDICULOUS!! Quick was the ONLY REASON it wasn't 5-0 Canada! GET TO DRUG REHAB FAST!
re: Don't blame miller.
My only hope is that you don't drink AND DRIVE!!! WHAT A DOUCHEBAG...
The Game Now
When the absolute best teams in the world or the NHL meet, this is the score and the game we get now, even the best European clubs -- and that's a problem. (Soccer on ice?) The worst thing that ever happened to hockey is NHL coaching. Jacques Lemaire, a great two-way player in Montreal, went to New Jersey and created the monster called the trap, a way for less talented teams to beat the more talented, and won the Cup for the Devils -- and it's been downhill ever since, head coaches doing their best to negate skating and passing, killing the beauty and spectacle that hockey used to be. There were always great coaches who demanded responsible defensive play from their guys (way back to Toe Blake, Punch Imlach, later Scotty Bowman, Al Arbor) but their teams went on the attack and scored plenty. And now the players are even bigger and more skilled -- I don't know what the U.S. was supposed to do against those six Canadian D-men. The bigger ice surface, for all the fuss we always hear, didn't make a bit of difference. So unfortunately, we're in for a lot more 1-0 and 2-1.
You identify your idiotic self every time you write in caps and multiple exclamation points like your yelling. Your opinions are about as smart as your TYPING!!!!!!!!!!
When are we going back to the old way with true amateurs and dump the NHL concept...more exciting then with no names and non millionaires
Re: to blame miller.
No a$$ hoe im not like you. And dumb a$$ so was miller when he won the silver. if you remember miller got beat from the blind side. where was d nowhere to be found. but quick let a easy one get by him. Miller didn't so a hoe get ready for some morepuck to slide by mr quick. It will be justice for not playing miller. Get shutout like that. And they were getting shutout when miller won silver too. Why the ones who was born their it show you where their heart is act. And they played like it too.

Quick to be in net for the Bronze. WGR shills and Miller lovers weep.
Mr. CAPS LOCK guy
You SPIN me ROUND like a RECORD. Round and ROUND and round and ROUND. Right ROUND Right ROUND. What EVER how it GOES. Round RIGHT?
@Mr. CAPS LOCK guy
You sho that moron way too much respect. Treat him like the piece of biological filth he actually is. Sorry to insult all life forms by including him. He is the most worthless piece of trash to ever walk the face of the earth, and some complete moron thought it would be a good idea to give him a computer. Thoughtless. He spends all his days time commenting on here and the BN website among many others. He is useless. He is the definition of troll. He causes reasonable responsible citizens to rethink the idea that all physical assaults should be illegal. Just spit on him, in the internet way of spitting on someone.
To the comment above.
You are right, just because this fool uses caps. He really think he saying something. But that biological filth, Man that was classic. Thank you for putting this idiot in his place. Ok we know quick is excellent goaltender. But so is miller, I will never understand why did that coach didn't play miller. Well we got our answer i guess. Maybe he was born in canada. So they would make sure they didn't win. I mean to get shutout in one game is bad on the world stage. but two get shutout twice. Was like watching peewee league. I would not be complaining. But they were blowing teams out. and soon as canada came the scoring from the team just stop. well the games are over for us. But still in all, Congrats to the U.S.A women team for the silver.
Paulrus commentless blog...Where do the Sabres go from here?
It's simple...Bring in the bulldozers!!! He should have known that. Enough said.
