Sens Olympic Notes: February 19, 2014

Team Canada is off to face the USA while Erik Karlsson's Team Sweden will take on their Finnish rivals in the semifinals at Sochi 2014. Here's your Olympic rundown...

Erik Karlsson — King Karl continued his stellar Olympics with another multi-point performance on Wednesday, this time against Slovenia in the quarter-finals as Sweden cruised to a 5-0 victory. After Finland's surprise victory over the Russian hosts, the Swedes will play their biggest rivals in the semis at Sochi on Friday.

Milan Michalek — The Czech Republic was eliminated from the men's hockey tournament on Wednesday by the United States in a 5-2 game. Michalek was originally credited with scoring the opening goal of the game for the Czechs, but ultimately had the tally taken from him and given to Ales Hemsky. He finished the tournament off the scoresheet but logged big minutes for his country, particularly in special teams situations.

Team Canada — It was a tighter scoreline than most anticipated, but Canada is through to the semifinals where they will take on the aforementioned USA after a 2-1 win over Latvia.

Canada dominated play for the vast majority of the game, outshooting the Latvians by a 57-16 margin over the three periods, but ran into a dialed in goalkeeper in Kristers Gudlevskis who turned aside 55. After an early 1-0 lead on a Patrick Sharp goal, the Latvians brought one back on a Hail Mary breakaway play that ended in a Lauris Darzins goal.

Shea Weber scored the winner for Canada with under seven minutes to play in the game while Carey Price stopped 15 shots to earn the win.

Canada and the USA will renew hostilities for the first time since 2010's gold medal game on Friday.
