Olympics: Canada beats Swiss 5-1 in men's hockey opener

Since women's ice hockey became part of the Olympic program in 1998, Canada and the United States have enjoyed a duopoly, playing for every gold medal except when Sweden crashed the party at the 2006 Turin Games. Coach Mike Babcock and stars Sidney Crosby and Drew Doughty aren't walking through that door, though, so it's their time. "And we know it's not going to get any easier moving forward". "We needed it from everybody and I thought we got it from lots of guys". "That's what we were talking about as a group, just enjoy the moment and be in it".

After working at least 40 strong minutes in beating Switzerland 5-1, Canada could very well be golden once again.

Rene Bourque and Wojtek Wolski each scored twice and Derek Roy had three assists as Canada opened its Olympic campaign with a 5-1 win over Switzerland on Thursday night.

"Nobody has superstars in this tournament", Bourque said.

"We had this whole week watching athletes compete in their sports and we finally got our chance, and I'm happy everyone came to play", said Wolski. "For us, though, it was a good start".

Canada's players lined up for the traditional postgame handshake as the USA players waited by the bench, calling for a review of what they thought was a goal in the final seconds.

That identity comes with the maple leaf on the jerseys.

"It's a rivalry, what would anyone else expect but exactly that", said US coach Rob Stauber. "I don't think that there's any better way".

Holding the hammer the Canadian world champions had looked poised to secure a victory only to watch skip Rachel Homan's last rock wreck on a guard in the 11th end as Madeleine Dupont's Danish foursome looked on stunned by their good fortune picking up a first win. The Swiss team is made up entirely of Swiss league talent.

That was a team of future Hockey Hall of Famers, NHL most valuable players and scoring champions like Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews. Maxime Noreau had the other goal for Canada, who received a 28-save performance from Ben Scrivens in goal.

Once the team was set, however, he felt some of the edge had been lost, that his team had played their exhibition games tentatively to avoid injury.

"I feel good", Desjardins said. First, Knight barely missed on a one-timer off a handsome set up from Coyne, who seconds later saw the puck hop over her stick while staring at an open net.
