USA Men's Hockey 2018 Olympic Schedule: Full List of Games, Times

Ryan played on the past two United States Olympic Men's Hockey teams, winning silver in Vancouver, and while he understands that the NHL is a business, he admits he's bummed out that he won't be able to play for the gold in PyeongChang. At least for one period Sunday, Finland seemed to have other plans. Finland actually took a 1-0 lead to the second period before the USA was able to scratch out goals from Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Kendall Coyne a minute apart in the second to take the lead.

Canada is attempting to win yet another gold medal.

The U.S.is scheduled to play Russian Federation on Tuesday.

Expect a great game.

This game will mean a lot of Group A. Finland is looking to regain some momentum and set themselves up well for the medal round. To come out with a win, it's great for our confidence, especially for the first-time Olympians. Their third goal would come as a result of an empty net (Dani Cameranesi) with 13 seconds left in the third period. Team USA had to bounce back from a slow start.

"We had a pretty good first period we just had a mental lapse on the play, we were in real good position, we just didn't pick up the most unsafe player". We were a little bit not ourselves. "So we have an opportunity as a squad this year with the guys that are under the radar as far as global stars but I think they have a great opportunity to step forward", said Granato. "And for me personally, yeah, it's first experience and obviously a lot of excitement and emotion going into it, so it's exciting to get it over with".

The first US goal, and the eventual victor, came from 30-year-old defenseman Kacey Bellamy of Westfield, Mass. on a blast from the right after a flawless cross-ice feed from Lamoureux-Davidson on the left wing. Switzerland is coming off a 3-1 victory over Japan, while Sweden bested Korea 8-0 in Monday's match. "Especially against a phenomenal goaltender like Noora".

It's been almost four decades since the United States Men's Hockey team captured gold at the Olympic Games.
