USA vs. Canada Semifinal Preview

Team Canada

North American neighbors Canada and the United States will meet in a rematch of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic final won by the Canadians on a golden goal from Sidney Crosby.

“2010 is all over with and we’re on a new opportunity both for them and for us,” said Canadian head coach Mike Babcock. “The teams are different.”

Every player on the American and Canadian rosters earn a living in the National Hockey League and in many cases are team mates who will return to the same locker rooms next week to continue their Stanley Cup quests.
