Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - There was clearly no looking ahead for the U.S. womens hockey team. The Americans accounted for the first 26 shots in their semifinal against Sweden and rolled to a 6-1 victory, earning a spot in the gold medal game on Thursday against either Canada or Switzerland. Alex Carpenter, Kacey Bellamy and Amanda Kessel scored to stake the Americans to a 3-0 lead before the Swedes even registered a shot against U.S. goaltender Jessie Vetter late in the opening period. The United States outshot Sweden by a whopping 70-9 count in the rout. Monique Lamoureux, Megan Bozek and Brianna Decker also scored for the Americans, who havent won gold since womens hockey made its Olympic debut at the 1998 Games in Nagano. Sweden has just one victory in 28 meetings with the U.S., but it was a big win -- a 3-2 shootout triumph in the 2006 Olympic semifinals. The Americans gained a measure of revenge four years later with a 9-1 rout of the Swedes in the 2010 Olympic semis. Anna Borgqvist was credited with the lone goal for Sweden late in the contest, spoiling Vetters shutout bid. Vetter finished with just eight saves. Valentina Wallner started in net for Sweden and was pulled after yielding five goals on 47 shots. Kim Martin Hasson turned aside all but one of the 23 shots she faced in relief, including a penalty shot by Jocelyne Lamoureux late in the third. The Americans grabbed a 1-0 lead on a power play. Kelli Stack carried the puck through the offensive zone along the right wing and circled behind the net before firing a pass into the slot for Carpenter, whose shot was headed wide but deflected off the skate of a Swedish defender and slid into the net. Bellamy increased the advantage just 1:06 later when a blast from the left point eluded a screened Wallner, and Kessel chipped in a rebound from the left side of the crease with 8:41 remaining in the period to make it 3-0. The Swedes took a timeout after the third goal and had a couple of chances on the power play late in the period, but managed just one harmless shot. An interference penalty on Swedens Pernilla Winberg early in the second period led to Monique Lamoureuxs power-play goal, and Bozeks point blast slid under Wallner with 7:43 left in the second for a 5-0 cushion. Wallner was pulled soon after. The Swedes finally snuck a shot past Vetter, as Borgqvist deflected an Emma Eliasson point shot into the back of the net with 6:56 remaining. The Americans had a hard time beating Martin Hasson, who made a nice pad save on Jocelyne Lamoureuxs penalty shot attempt. Lamoureux tried a spin move in front of the crease and Hasson kept the right pad extended to turn aside the backhand attempt. Martin Hasson finally yielded a goal with 3:02 to play when Deckers shot from the slot rang off the crossbar and Swedish defenseman Emilia Andersson inadvertently kicked it into her own net. Ryan Jensen Jersey . General manager David Poile called signing Ribeiro a great opportunity to add a talented, experienced and creative centre Tuesday when he introduced the veteran at a news conference. Ribeiros contract is worth $1.05 million after being bought out of the final three years of a $22 million contract by the Coyotes recently. Carlton Davis Jersey . Jackson Houck added a goal and two assists for the Giants (28-23-10), who halted a five-game slide, while Tyler Morrison, Mason Geertsen and Dominik Volek each scored once. Matt Bellerive scored both goals for the Blazers (12-43-5), who are 1-9-0 in their last 10 outings. http://www.authenticbuccaneersstoreonli ... ns-Jersey/. Louis Blues have returned to the top spot in the TSN. Chandler Catanzaro Jersey . The 17-year-old had four goals and four assists in 38 games for Liberec in the Czech pro league this past season. Zacha had three goals and two assists in seven games at the world mens under-18 championship in April when the Czech Republic took the silver medal. Ronald Jones II Jersey . He looked very comfortable Wednesday night. Konerko had a big three-run double and Gordon Beckham homered for the second straight game, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sliding Chicago Cubs.Players who join the $180 million lawsuit against the Canadian Hockey League can remain anonymous throughout the course of the case. Ted Charney, a Toronto lawyer who is suing the CHL on behalf of former junior players, said because his case has one named representative plaintiff, others can avoid being publicly identified, protecting their hockey careers. Weve been talking to several players over the past several weeks but none of them wanted to be the representative plaintiff, Charney told TSN in an interview. They dont want to jeopardize their careers by being the face of the lawsuit. On Friday, Sam Berg, the son of former Toronto Maple Leaf player Bill Berg, sued the CHL, the governing body for 60 teams in the Ontario Hockey League, Western Hockey League and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. A statement of claim filed by Berg on behalf of himself and thousands of other players seeks $180 million in outstanding wages, vacation, holiday and overtime pay and employer payroll contributions, according to legal documents obtained by TSN. In a note on his firms website, Charney wrote that he is looking for players who played for major junior teams as far back as October 2008. The beauty of this now is that other players dont ever have to go public, Charney said. Every member of the league is eligible for compensation and its like voting in an election. Their information is completely confidential. They will face no reprisals. The documents filed by Berg show players in the OHL receive $50 to $120 a week in compensation, while players in the QMJHL get $35 to $150, depending on the age of the player. Those aged 16 to 19 get $50 a week in the OHL and $35 a week in the QMJHL. The Toronto Star first reported Bergs lawsuit. While Bergs lawsuit alleges players work as much as 65 hours per week or more, Berg said he was paid $50 a week by the OHLs Niagara IceDogs in 2013.dddddddddddd On average, Sam devoted about six hours a day, seven days a week to providing services to the team, his lawsuit says. When the team traveled, he would devote longer hours, up to 12 hours a day. After he was demoted to Junior B hockey, a shoulder injury ended his career. The OHL allegedly reduced his university scholarship package from four years to half a year, Berg alleges. CHL president David Branch has repeatedly said that players in the CHL are student athletes, and are well compensated, thanks largely to an education program the league has in place that provides some players with university scholarships when they are done playing. The IceDogs coach told The Star that Berg breached his contract when he failed to show up at training camp. Bergs allegations have not been proven in court. Several NHL player agents said the CHL has known for months that a lawsuit like this one might be looming, and sought to change its standard players contract. Instead of describing players as employees or independent contractors, players are now described as student athletes. Charney said its unclear how long the case will take to wind its way through the courts. A class action lawsuit against Maple Leaf Foods over lysteria outbreak was wrapped up in six months, he said, because the company did a mea culpa. I guess it depends whether we have a material disagreement with the CHL over the facts here. Charney said he expected the case would be assigned to a judge and a case conference would be held outlining a prospective schedule before Christmas.
