Canada vs. South Korea Odds, Prediction: Men's 2018 Olympic Hockey

Rene Bourque

Three-on-three overtime on the international-sized ice is flat-out bonkers, especially since the teams don't change ends and face the long change the way Canada and the Czech Republic did Saturday at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Petr Koukal and Jan Kouvar were successful for the Czechs against Ben Scrivens. "We just couldn't find a way to get one in".

Prospal, who retired in 2014, helped the Czechs win two world hockey championships and a bronze medal at the 2006 Olympics in Turin.

Lacking a generational talent with the National Hockey League passing on Pyeongchang, Desjardins led off with fourth-line winger Maxim Lapierre, followed with Wojtek Wolski, Derek Roy and Mason Raymond and closed with defenceman Maxim Noreau, who beat Pavel Francouz but not the post, ending a run of 11 straight Olympic wins for Canada.

Mason Raymond and Rene Bourque scored for Canada, which wraps up preliminary-round play Sunday against South Korea.

Canada's three goalies, who have each played one game, have amassed the tournament's top save percentage, stopping 97.67 percent of shots against them.

Israeli airstrikes hit Hamas facilities in response to bombing attack
Palestinian officials said three Hamas training camps and one belonging to a smaller group had been struck but no-one was injured. In August 2015, Hamas captured a dolphin equipped with spying devices, including cameras, off the shore of the Gaza Strip.

Canada have outscored their opponents 11-2 so far and have the competition's second-highest scoring efficiency at 10.68 percent, just behind Switzerland who topped Group B.

Finland, who beat the Russians to take the third seeding, will meet sixth-seeded Sweden on Saturday for the right to play the Americans, and the fourth-seeded Russians take on fifth-seeded Switzerland to earn a spot against Canada.

Canada had 28 shots on goal compared to Switzerland's 29 and only 1:32 in power play time compared to Switzerland's 3:26, and yet Canada absolutely dominated this game from the start. "Like if you give everything you've got, then what happens happens and you move on to the next game and you look for some adjustments and you come back ready". After a Francouz save on Derek Roy, Kovar netted a wrist shot to put the Czechs ahead.

They tied the game 1-1 at 6:52 of the first when Scrivens deflected a centring attempt up in the air, Lee couldn't corral the bouncing puck and Kubalik pounced on it and slipped it home. "But we know there's good opposition and we know it's going to be tight".

Both teams had opportunities in the overtime, but none more promising than when Mat Robinson came in on a breakaway but could not finish.
