Fans of the St. Louis Blues have a lot to cheer for as Canada takes on the United States in the 2014 Winter Olympic men’s ice hockey tournament semifinal. This is the semifinal, and several Blues players have their names on the line as the US tries to take down Canada in this winner-take-all, loser-go-for-bronze playoff.
To this point, the United States has personified the blue collar mentality that head coach Dan Bylsma has been looking for. In particular, David Backes and T.J. Oshie have been outstanding for the United States.
While the Americans attempt to take advantage of the strong play of the Blues that are in Sochi, Canada is utilizing two of St. Louis’ top defenders in Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo. Will that defensive tandem be enough to stop the strong US attack? Or will Canada finally make the giant offensive push that they could be capable of on any given night?
