Canada wins 1-0 over the U.S. to advance to the gold-medal gameSubmitted: 02/21/2014
Story By NBC Olympics.com

SOCHI - The U.S. was averaging five goals per game heading into the Olympic semifinals.

Against Canada, it couldn't muster one.

That was the story at the Bolshoy Ice Dome on Friday as Carey Price stopped all 31 shots faced and Canada continued its stifling defense in a 1-0 win over the Americans, securing a berth in the gold medal game for the second consecutive Olympics.

Jamie Benn scored the game's lone marker his second of the tournament early in the second period, deflecting home a Jay Bouwmeester slap-pass.


The game-winner was one of the biggest of Benn's career and made for a great story, as Benn is the lone player on the Canadian team that didn't get invited to Hockey Canada's Olympic orientation camp.
