Canada wants to force cable companies to unbundle TV
“We kind of floundered a little bit early on but we’ll get there,” Stone said. “The good news is we came on as the game went on. We scored two goals, we put a ton of pressure on them at the end We need to start faster.” Canada had the edge in offensive zone time in a scoreless first period, netted two goals in the second and pushed the lead to 3-0 early in the third. The USA broke through with a two-player advantage power play goal at mid-third, cut the deficit to one with 5:31 remaining and drove hard to the finish. Those final minutes included not only several good USA chances but a skirmish that earned two players on each team five-minute roughing majors and game misconducts after USA forward Jocelyne Lamoureux collided with Canada goalie Shannon Szabados at 16:53. Szabados sprawled on the ice and her teammates came to her defense, setting off a lengthy tussle in the corner. “It happens from time to time,” said longtime Canadian team member Hayley Wickenheiser of the scuffle, recalling a 2010 incident. In the first period, Canada had a 5-4 edge in shots that failed to reflect its territorial control. The USA’s game was disjointed but the Americans’ speed still led to a couple of quality chances that Szabados (15 saves) rejected. Ouellette sent Canada into a 1-0 lead at 4:16 of the second, converting Jayna Hefford’s cross-slot power play pass. Only 1:21 later, Bailey Bram knocked in Canada’s second goal during a goal-mouth scrum.

Until a late power play, the U.S. put one shot on goal during an earlier player-advantage. The extent of Canadian domination was reflected not only in the two goals but the 12-2 shot advantage in the second period and 17-6 through 40 minutes.

“Air Canada acknowledges inappropriate comments were made in response to a reporter’s follow-up questions for additional details regarding Larry,” it said. “However, Air Canada has been providing the best available information to media on this matter. These comments do not reflect Air Canada’s standards or professionalism, and do not refer to the search for Larry by Air Canada employees which is ongoing.” Larry’s temporary owner said she was furious when she heard about the message. “I was angry… (but) I was not surprised that someone could be that stupid. It was an incredibly stupid, very cold, callous e-mail,” Jutta Kulic said from Sacramento, where she is traveling for a dog show. Kulic, who lives in Ohio, said she was taking care of Larry after his owner, a friend, died of cancer. The friend wanted her dogs placed in “loving homes,” she said. Larry was on his way to Canada, when he vanished, she said. He was placed in a crate secured with several zip ties and Kulic said she gave staff specific instructions not to take him out. Air Canada said staff continues to search for Larry and have put up posters near the airport. Kulic, meanwhile, said she’s received reports of sightings and has reason to believe Larry was struck by a vehicle on a highway on-ramp sometime this week.
