"Obviously disappointed with the result, I think we have been playing pretty well just been missing some shots and we've had teams play really well against us", said Canadian lead Lisa Weagle.

"Hockey Canada's done a great job getting us ready [with pre-tournament games] and for us to come out and work hard [Thursday] it's a great feeling", said Roy. "How we can generate more and eliminate chances against us".

Canada and the United States were already assured of participating in the semi-final round after winning their first two matches of group A, which brings together four of the best nations in the world. And not only was Lacasse caught out of position, but the centering pass was on target, giving Knight the ideal chance to tie the game at two goals apiece.

Switzerland and Sweden, respectively first and second in group B, will compete in meetings of the quarterfinals, against Finland, or against the team representing Russian Federation on Saturday. The matchup is now technically the United States vs. the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, and only two players from the 2014 game will take the ice in PyeongChang: OAR forwards Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk.

"It's a heated rivalry out there", Nurse added.

Both teams expect to reach the gold medal game once again, but this early contest could set the tone for a future showdown.

Canada played Sweden later in the day.

"I had a lot of adrenaline", Lacasse said. But Canada goaltender Genevieve Lacasse had a part in that, with several key saves. The multi-talented athlete has also represented Canada internationally on the rugby pitch a number of times. The loser of that final game will get the silver medal, while the two teams that lost in the semifinals will play one another for bronze. I think we were fortunate to get a couple of goals early. "(She) pulled it through her legs, tried to do something fancy and I just watched it and pushed over and made the save.

A key point in the game came in the fifth end.

"It's always a battle, especially against the US", Agosta said.

Denmark tied the score in the final end, forcing the game into overtime. But how can you not give a star to Wolski, the Canadian forward who scored two goals (one at even strength, one into an empty net) 16 months after breaking his neck, having made a miraculous comeback to become an Olympian?

"Yeah, we're not anxious about it", said Stauber after watching his team absorb a fifth straight loss to Canada.

Canada would usually be the main attraction packing the largest venue but on Thursday the gold medallists were relegated to the smaller arena used primarily for women's hockey while the host South Koreans took on the Czech Republic across town at the main arena. Veteran Christian Ehrhoff struggled to keep up with the quick pace of play and will need to improve if his team plans to advance to the deeper stages of the tournament.
