  • Ice Hockey- Winter Olympics Day 6- Czech Republic v Republic Of Korea

Canada has lost to the Czech Republic 3-2 in a shootout, the first loss by its men's hockey team at the Olympics since 2010.

The Czech Petr Koukal and Jan Kouvar the other hand, have deceived the vigilance of Ben Scrivens in the shootout. While the Canadians shouldn't underestimate the upset potential of playing against the host nation, South Korea did just come off an 8-0 loss to Switzerland - a team that Canada has already beaten 5-1. Rene Bourque also scored on the power play while Dominik Kubalik and Jordan replied for the Czech Republic, which was outshot 33-20 through the first 65 minutes.

Canada started the game with a record of 13-13-1 against the Czech Republic at the olympic Games or the world Championship of hockey. The Americans won the first and Canada have claimed four in a row.

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.

The Czech pressure also led to some questionable decisions with the puck, as later in the first Marc-Andre Gragnani made a pass from his own corner to Raymond in front of the Canadian net, where Roman Cervenka picked his pocket and almost scored.

"I know people will look at the 2-1 score and say we did pretty well", he said.

"We played hard", said Desjardins. South Korea is the smallest and the lightest team in Group A, but its players refused to be simply pushed around by the Czechs, the tallest and heaviest side in the same group.

Canada have outscored their opponents 11-2 so far and have the competition's second-highest scoring efficiency at 10.68 percent, just behind Switzerland who topped Group B. The Canadians showed good puck movement on the power play with Linden Vey spotting fellow former Vancouver Canuck Raymond for a slick tip-in in front of goal at 1:13.

The Czechs pulled even at 6:52 after Chris Lee failed to clear a bouncing puck.

Canada drew first blood on the powerplay early in the first period. Kubalik was able to beat Scrivens. But another power-play goal settled the nerves.

Two saves later, Noreau had to score to keep Canada alive.

"I thought it was going in", Noreau said of frozen rubber that probably would have made it with the help of a curling broom.

Forward Andrew Ebbett limped off midway through the third period, favouring his leg after being sandwiched by a pair of Czechs near centre ice.

Canada had won the last five meetings with the Czech Republic and eight of the last 10.

Goaltender Justin Peters, defenceman Karl Stollery and forward Quinton Howden did not dress for Canada with defenceman Stefan Elliott and forward Brandon Kozun drawing in.
