One day after Canada's women's hockey team delivered a crushing loss to Team USA, the men's team did the same. Canada beat the US 1-0 today in the semifinals, reports AP. Jamie Benn scored early in the second period, and Carey Price stopped all 30 American shots in goal for the win. Canada will play Sweden for the gold medal on Sunday. Team USA can take home a bronze if it beats Finland. (More 2014 Sochi Olympics stories.)
