Sens Olympic Notes: February 16, 2014
The Sens had a day off from the ice in Sochi but Team Canada was in action and booked their trip to the quarter-finals with a win. Here's today's Olympic rundown...
Erik Karlsson — The Swedes had a day away from the rink on Sunday and will await the winner of Austria and Slovenia for their quarter-final matchup. Karlsson has five points through three games in the tournament.
Milan Michalek — The Czech Republic will be taking on Slovakia for the right to play a quarter-final game on Tuesday. Michalek is still looking for his first points of the tournament.
Team Canada — It wasn't easy, but Team Canada earned an overtime victory over Finland on Sunday to clinch their spot in a quarter-final game.
The Canadians took a first period lead on a Drew Doughty goal before the Finns came back and tied it in the second period on a Tuomo Ruutu goal. Doughty ultimately won the game in OT with his second of the game to beat Finnish goaltender Tuukka Rask.
Rask stood tall in goal for Finland and kept the game within reach despite the Canadians dominating long stretches of play. He made 25 stops — many of which came on top quality chances — in the loss. Carey Price turned aside 14 shots for Canada to earn the win.
Canada will await the winner of Latvia and Switzerland in the quarter-final.
