Bronze at best

UPDATE 8:06 a.m.

Germany continued its miracle run at the Pyeongchang Olympics this morning, booking an unlikely ticket to the gold-medal game after adding Team Canada to its upset list in a 4-3 semifinal win.

Canada's comeback fell short after Canada scored a power-play goal to make things interesting.

Winnipeg-born Brooks Macek, Matthias Plachta, Frank Mauer and Patrick Hager scored for Germany, which led 1-0 after the first period and 4-1 after the second.

It was only Germany's second victory in 30 meetings with Canada in Olympic and world championship play.

The Canadian men had won the last 11 meetings, outscoring the Germans 58-15, and had gone 11-0-1 against the Germans since the 1996 loss.

Robinson, Gilbert Brule and Derek Roy scored for Canada


ORIGINAL 7:19 a.m.

Canada's bid for a third-straight Olympic gold medal in men's hockey has ended with a 4-3 semifinal loss to Germany.

Team Canada pushed back hard in the third period, pulling two goals back, but the Germans held on.

The Canadians had won Olympic gold in 2010 and 2014. But this year's tournament doesn't feature NHL players like Vancouver and Sochi.

It was only Germany's second victory in 30 meetings with Canada in Olympic and world championship play.

Canada will play the Czech Republic for the bronze medal on Saturday while the Germans go for gold Sunday against the entry from Russia.

More coming.
