Team USA will play Team Canada in the final today

He had scored three times in Wednesday's seven-round semifinal shootout win over Russian Federation. It was Terry's fourth shootout goal in two days as he scored three the previous day against Russian Federation. The U.S. -Russia semifinal, meanwhile, was more electrifying, with talent rising to the top as the teams traded scoring chances and playing a speed game.

Even though he allowed four goals, USA goaltender Tyler Parsons made 46 saves and was a major cog in keeping the Americans in it. U.S. would emerge victorious in the end, but Canada brought their "A" game and both teams fought hard for the glory of their respective countries. This back-and-forth tilt would head to overtime. This game could have ended so many times - Pierre-Luc Dubois, in particular, will see a puck that he swung at and missed, when he had time to stop it and fire. "He came up clutch for us again, and (Parsons) made that big save at the end".

In a span of about 10 seconds, Jeremy Bracco, Luke Kunin and Anthony Cirelli traded scoring chances on either side of the ice.

For the Canadian players and fans, it was an anti-climactic way to bring an end to an otherwise tremendous and intense hockey game, one that twice saw Canada cough up a two-goal lead. Twice the Canadians had two-goal leads.

But that was only the opening act of the period.

Less then three minutes after that, the reset button was hit once again.

The U.S. had defeated Canada 3-1 in the final game of the preliminary round, in part because Canada had got in penalty trouble and couldn't figure a way to find the net around the American shot-blockers. He beat the goalies between the legs on all four attempts in the two games. Troy Terry scored four goals and seven points for the US, but it was his prowess in the shootout that made him a legend. Canada still produces better top-end players, probably, but over the past two years there have been six Americans taken in the top 10 of the National Hockey League draft, and five Canadians. "I guess it just took over me". However, coach Dominique Ducharme chose to pull Ingram and replaced him with Carter Hart, who came off the bench and stopped all 28 shots the Swedes fired at him the rest of the game.

The goal was the result of a frantic pace that the game started with.

The native of Sainte-Marie, Que., was also the only defenceman to record at least one point in every single game during the two-week tournament.

According to trends24, a website that tracks trending topics, Americans eagerly clacked away at their keyboards as they watched the United States rally from two two-goal deficits to defeat Canada, 5-4, in a shootout in Montreal. BU takes on UMass at 1:30 p.m., while BC faces Providence at 5.

A bad line change allowed USA defenceman Charlie McAvoy to walk in alone and pick the top corner to cut Canada's lead in half.
