Instead, Wickenheiser scored the team's second shorthanded goal a few minutes later and as time expired on the period Agosta deked the goaltender on the breakaway to make it 7-0. It had been a physical, chippy, hard-fought game that would end with the puck on the ice, just inches in front of the Canadian goal.

The United States, Olympic Athletes from Russia, Slovenia and Slovakia are in Group B; and Sweden, Finland, Norway and Germany find themselves in Group C. Kendal Coyne agreed, suggesting the USA would take that game 10 times out of 10.
