U.S. Olympic Woman’s Team Will Play For Gold

GANGNEUNG, South Korea  — Dani Cameranesi (Plymouth, Minn.) recorded two goals and an assist and Maddie Rooney (Andover, Minn.) made 14 saves as the U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team shut out Finland, 5-0, in the semifinals of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. The victory puts Team USA into the gold-medal game on Thursday (Feb. 22), when it will play either Canada or the Olympic Athletes from Russia.

“Tonight, we beat a very good goaltender and a very good hockey team” said U.S. Olympic Women's Team head coach Robb Stauber. "Our plan coming in was to repeat the good habits that we talked about earlier in the tournament and today we were rewarded."

Puck drop for the gold-medal game is set for 1:10 p.m. (local time Thursday in S. Korea)/11:10 p.m. ET (Wed. Feb. 21) and will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Network as well as streamed on NBCOlympics.com. The U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team, which has medaled in all five Olympic appearances to date (gold-1998, silver-2002, 2010 and 2014 and bronze-2006), is competing in the gold-medal game of an Olympic Winter Games for the fifth time.

NHL Statement On The Incident In Chicago Last Night

NEW YORK (Feb. 18, 2018) – "Last night in Chicago, individuals directed racial taunts and abuse at Washington Capitals player Devante Smith-Pelly," said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. "The National Hockey League condemns this unacceptable and reprehensible behavior. The League fully supports the actions taken by the United Center and the Blackhawks to eject the offenders and would expect the same response to any similarly unacceptable behavior at any of our arenas.

"While this incident was isolated in nature, no player, coach, official or fan should ever have to endure such abuse at one of our games. The League will take steps to have our clubs remind all stakeholders that they are entitled to enjoy a positive environment - free from unacceptable, inappropriate, disruptive, inconsiderate or unruly behaviors or actions and may not engage in conduct deemed detrimental to that experience."

Morning Line- Bob Murray

“I’m not a rental fan. I’ve never been a rental fan. The last couple of things we’ve done, I’ve ended up signing the guys because we’ve liked them. But are there things out there? Apparently. I know what’s out there. I know the price tags teams are asking for right now. And I’m not interested.”

-Bob Murray, GM of the Anaheim Ducks.  Eric Stephens of the OC Register has more.

The Dynasty Is Dead In Chicago

from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald,

Little thought is given to what's occurred the past 10 years on West Madison, no pause for reflection, hardly a memory of what the previous two decades resembled, hardly a memory of what it feels like to escape the abyss, breathe clean air and celebrate a generation of excellence.

Not that long ago -- relatively speaking, and especially for any who lived through the misery -- this was the worst franchise in all of sports, but under Rocky Wirtz it has become one of the very best in every imaginable way, using any imaginable metric.

It has been a heck of a run and worth a few moments to celebrate before taking a match to all of it.

All good teams must come to an end. It is the eternal way of things.
