PyeongChang-2018

Canada wins - in semi's

Maxim Noreau's goal early in the third period moved Team Canada into the Olympic men's hockey semifinals with a 1-0 win over Finland.

The breakthrough goal came 55 seconds into the third period with Noreau blasting a point shot stickside past Mikko Koskinen after an Eric O'Dell faceoff win.

Ben Scrivens started the game for Canada, but gave way to Kevin Poulin at 4:17 of the second period after a crushing O'Dell check sent a Finnish player flying into the Canadian goaltender.

Hockey Canada said Scrivens suffered an "upper-body injury."

Canada will play either Sweden or Germany in Friday's semifinals.

Canada is looking for a third straight Olympic gold medal, though the 2010 and 2014 titles were won with rosters stocked with NHL talent. There are no NHL players competing at the Pyeongchang Games.

More coming.
