  • Hirscher crashes out of Olympic slalom

If the team's chemistry displayed on the ice is anything to go by, a united team could be here to stay.

The Dutch were Sochi's gold medal victor in the event, however all eyes are on New Zealand's Peter Michael who was the first speed skater from his country to win a World Cup event in 2016.

Team USA can rely on the plays of Dani Cameranesi who delivered two goals against Finland in the semifinals. He has been the World Cup slalom champion in four of the last six years, and it would not be a surprise if he won that title again this year. However, when the game is on the line, Daoust and Poulin can combine their tenacity to beat the Americans. Both teams have outclassed their opponents and racked up lopsided wins.

The other men's hockey semifinal will pit the tournament favourite Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation against Czech Republic.

Fans cheer the combined Koreas women's hockey team after the classification round game against Sweden at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, on February 20, 2018. Team USA, which has won eight World Championships along with the one Olympic gold, outplayed Canada for large swaths of that game one week ago, perhaps providing the US women with some extra confidence despite the defeat.

The team has been poor, there's no other way around it.

"They were getting Oreo McFlurries for breakfast and so we all laughed about that and had McFlurries together", chuckled Griffin, an American of Korean heritage drafted in to bolster the Korean side.

USA's Jessica Diggins (L) and USA's Kikkan Randall celebrate winning gold in the women's cross country team sprint free final at the Alpensia cross country ski centre. There's little love between the two foes, as evidenced in a late-game skirmish when Canada scored a 2-1 victory earlier in the tournament. "I think we've all matured in our habits, matured in our mind-sets, and we're ready to go". "This is the game that you want, the game we've been dreaming of and to have another opportunity to get back here is huge". They collided in the right circle in the USA offensive zone, sending Savolainen off balance before crashing face-first into the boards and snapping her head back.

Maddie Rooney, 20, has started three games for the Americans in Pyeongchang and is their likely starter Thursday.

That came when women on the national team won a fight for better pay and scored a contract that rivals that of the men's national team.

What we do know is that this is the zenith of women's hockey.

"They are an wonderful group", said the team's Canadian coach, Sarah Murray, who wept while hugging some of her squad.

So what's the difference between the team that crushed Sweden in pre-Olympic play and the team that's spent the first three games of its Olympic tournament losing to the Czechs in a shootout in between not-so-convincing wins over the Swiss and Koreans?
