Abbotsford's Juulsen, Team Canada playing for gold

The USA/ Russia game may have been in the top 10 hockey games I have watched all time. As Canada forward Mathew Barzal said, "That's probably the biggest Canada-US moment that I know". After all, he was on the ice for almost 60 more minutes than the next-highest player in terms of ice time. It was Terry's fourth shootout goal in two days as he scored three in the semifinal game against Russian Federation on Wednesday. Unfortunately for Canada so did the U.S.

Ilya Samsonov dazzled to keep the score level in overtime, which was played using a four-on-four format, first denying Caleb Jones before producing a stunning save as Joey Anderson tried to slide the puck home. The U.S. scored twice in the second.

The teams traded chances in the early part of the 20 minute overtime period, in end-to-end action that was evident through the first 60 minutes. This is the second time the United States has won it on Canadian soil.

"He has great skill, great hands", United States defenceman Charlie McAvoy said of Terry. He had made a big save in the sixth round of the Russian Federation game and was clutch again against Canada. "Because, I felt, someone has to lose this game and they both played so well".

The game began at a pace that was perhaps even more frantic than the ones set by Wednesday's semi-finals and never really slowed down. On the second shift of the first period, Mitchell Stephens rang a shot off the post.

Things got worse for the United States, as Jeremy Lauzon doubled the lead just a few minutes later.

Four minutes later, a US defenceman used his glove to swat a puck out of the defensive zone. Terry scored all three of the American's shootout goals and Parsons was rock solid when he needed to be, sending the team straight through to the medal round, where they'll face - you guessed it - its rival Canada.

For a while, the Americans had no answer for Canada's speed and puck pursuit.

The US would come roaring back in the 2nd period however. They are the world's emerging hockey nation; more players, more players in different places seeded by the NHL, and a toughness that matches Canada.

The Canadians were playing their best when they were going north-south and driving to the net.

"You have players who still have their dreams of where they want to get to, and they throw themselves into it", he said. The Americans countered with two in the second period, sending the two powerhouses tied heading into the final frame. "To go down 4-2 in the third and then come right back like we did, resilience is the only word I have".

Nicolas Roy scored on the power play at 1:52 to give Canada the lead again, then Mathieu Joseph scored on a breakaway just over three minutes later to open up a two-goal lead again.

In the nightcap, Canadian goalie Connor Ingram allowed two goals on the first three shots he faced. The game achieved a 40.2% share, meaning more than 40% of people watching television across Canada on Thursday night were tuned to the game.

It was that kind of game. "Events like these are a testament to the power of live sports, and with the biggest and most diverse broadcast schedule in the country, we can't wait to showcase another incredible year of championships in 2017".
