Team Canada had the day off today. After a shutout win against Austria with a final score of 6-0 yesterday, I’m glad they have a day to relax before hitting the ice again tomorrow when they take on Finland. It also gives us fans time to reminisce about the obvious leadership of Sidney Crosby, the Ryan Getzlaf goal in the second period, and the penalty shot awarded to Corey Perry (even though he didn’t score, but that’s okay).
Tomorrow’s line-up of games also includes Austria vs. Norway, Russia vs. Sloakia, and Slovenia vs. USA.
Canada’s women’s hockey team also had some time off after their last game against Team USA when they won by a score of 3-2. Hayley Wickenheiser and the rest of the Canadian women return to the ice on Monday when they take on Team Switzerland in the semifinal.
As of writing this, Canada has a total of 12 Olympic medals, which include six in freestyle skiing, two in figure skating, two in speed skating, one in snowboarding, and one in short track speed skating.
The ladies curling group in Sochi are still unbeaten after taking on Japan and winning with a score of 8-6. Tomorrow, both the men’s and women’s Canadian curling team take on the USA teams.
All of our athletes have made our country proud with their participation and representing us through a lot of tough competition.
Go Team Canada!
