South Korea hockey coach will stay two more years

In this Associated Press photo, Shin Sang-woo of South Korea (L) and Jakub Nakladal of the Czech Republic battle for the puck during the teams' Group A game of the men's hockey tournament at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics at Gangneung Hockey Centre in Gangneung, Gangwon Province, on February 15, 2018. The pace is frenetic, the transitions are immediate and the space to operate appears even more endless than it does in the National Hockey League. Roy made some nifty rushes but couldn't finish it off. But on the messy ice the defenceman lost the puck before he could fire a shot away, another in a series of opportunities the Canadians couldn't covert. "I probably won't be able to sleep tonight".

The Czech Republic beat Canada 3-2 in a shootout on Saturday in a back-and-forth preliminary game in the men's Olympic ice hockey tournament.

South Korean men's hockey players entered their first Olympic match against the Czech Republic on Thursday with a chip on their shoulders, perhaps the only group of people inside Gangneung Hockey Centre who believed South Korea could win this game.

Sure, but man, that shootout.

Canada has overcome shaky results in the last two Olympics, though, to win Gold.

Although Canada won the shots battle by a 33-21 margin, Czech goaltender Pavel Francouz made 31 saves and allowed just one goal in the shootout en route to victory.

The Czech Petr Koukal and Jan Kouvar the other hand, have deceived the vigilance of Ben Scrivens in the shootout.

"I thought it was going in, I must've pushed it wide or there was snow, but we don't have time to dwell on that", Noreau said of his shot.

Thomas in the 1920, Riviera became known as "Hogan's Alley" after Ben Hogan won the event three times in the 1940s. In fact, he said the only part of his body that hurt after playing Torrey Pines was his feet.

The Czechs came close on a power play of their own but the puck bounced off the post during a goal-mouth scramble.

"It's a tough way to lose", said Canadian forward Linden Vey. "It was the game we expected", he said. "We just move ahead to the next one".

For a second game in a row, the Canada opened the scoring on its first shot.

Wojtek Wolski scored for Canada while Maxim Lapierre, Derek Roy, Rene Bourque and Maxim Noreau missed. Scrivens came up big later in the period, stopping a Lukas Radil shot from the slot.

The iron helped him, too, when Jiri Sekac hit the crossbar with 1:05 left. This one's gone, we don't worry about it at all.

The game was physical and chippy throughout, and the Canadians had lots of trouble handling an aggressive Czech forecheck, particularly during the first period when the Europeans carried the play for extended stretches.

Finland, who beat the Russians to take the third seeding, will meet sixth-seeded Sweden on Saturday for the right to play the Americans, and the fourth-seeded Russians take on fifth-seeded Switzerland to earn a spot against Canada. "Either way we should be able to break it out and find the holes because they definitely had some and we needed to expose them". Its record against the Czechs in Olympic and world championship play fell to 13-14-1. It ended with the Czechs pressing.
