Canada vs USA Part Deux: Who you got in Friday’s semifinal?


Jean Levac/Postmedia News
Team Canada forward Marie-Philip Poulin celebrates her game-tying goal against the USA during the third period of the women’s gold-medal match at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, on Thursday. Canada overcame a 2-0 deficit and prevailed 3-2 in overtime on Poulin’s second goal of the game in a heroic performance.

First off, congratulations to the Canadian women’s hockey team for winning gold in Sochi by rallying from a 2-0 deficit to defeat their archrivals from the United States 3-2 in overtime on Thursday.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to see that game live but will be tuning in to the replay at some point soon.

In the meantime, it’s hard for me not to think ahead to the men’s semifinal on Friday morning, pitting the same two nations against each other in a rematch of the 2010 gold-medal game in Vancouver, which also saw Canada defeat the Americans 3-2 in overtime.

Due to time constraints and other commitments, I won’t be able to provide an elaborative preview right now (possibly later), but here’s my prediction: Canada 4, USA 2 (with an empty-netter).
