USA-Canada hockey showdown a dud

SOCHI, Russia - The men's hockey showdown between Canada and the United States didn't pack the punch that most were hoping for when the game began.

Many viewed these two teams as the best in the tournament and fully expected a wild, heart-pounder similar to the gold medal game between the USA and Canada women the previous night.

Instead, the Canadians dominated from start to finish with a cold, ruthless performance to win 1-0 and advance to the gold medal game.

Canada put the Americans in a vise and wouldn't let them breathe, limiting their scoring chances and suffocating their offensive attack. Canada goalie Carey Price got the shutout, but he was rarely challenged. Jamie Benn got the only goal for Canada in a game that lacked many scoring chances for either side.

The Canadians will play Sweden in the gold medal game Sunday.
