2014 Sochi Olympics: Canada Beats USA 1-0 in Men’s Hockey Semi-Final (GIF)

Jamie Benn game-winner vs USA

Canada hasn’t quite lit it up offensively at the Winter Games in Sochi, and today’s semi-final against Team USA was no exception, as the defending gold medal champs managed just one goal.  But on this occasion, that one goal was all they needed, as Carey Price and the Canadian defense shut down an American offense that entered the game with a tournament-leading 20 goals in just four games.
