SOCHI, Russia – Jonathan Quick (Milford, Conn./Los Angeles Kings) made 36 saves but the U.S. Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Team fell to Canada, 1-0, in the semifinals of the Olympic Winter Games. Team USA will play Finland for the bronze medal tomorrow (Feb. 22) at 10 a.m. ET.

Quick stood tall in the scoreless first period with 16 saves, including three on quality chances during a Canadian power play. The U.S. tested Canada’s Carey Price with 11 shots.

Canada scored the game’s only goal 1:41 into the second period when Jamie Benn redirected a hard diagonal pass from Jay Bouwmeester into the net.

Team USA was unable to capitalize on a pair of power plays in the middle frame. Zach Parise (Minneapolis, Minn./Minnesota Wild) had the best U.S. opportunity, but his redirection at the edge of the crease was kicked away.

Five minutes into the third period, James van Riemsdyk’s (Middleton, N.J./Toronto Maple Leafs) sharp-angle shot below the right circle was shut down by Price.

In the final minute of play, Joe Pavelski (Plover, Wis./San Jose Sharks) had a wrist shot from the right faceoff dot that was denied.

NBC Sports Network will broadcast the bronze-medal game live at 10 a.m. ET. All-time in the Olympics, Team USA is 7-0-0-3-2 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T) vs. Finland. They have never met in the bronze-medal game.
