VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- All the stars have aligned for this, the last stop on the hockey tour de force that will likely reach legendary proportions Sunday afternoon, when the U.S. and Canada face off with Olympic gold on the line. Austin Murphy: Team Canada promises to bring A-game to golden rematchupdated: Sat Feb 27 2010 03:34:00

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The home crowd was content, and looking ahead. This one was in the bag. Canada was up 3-nil on a game-but-overmatched Slovakia club with another 14 minutes to play, but really, this one was over, right? If you were one of the many face-painted fans, it was time to get obnoxious, and maybe get some face-time on CTV. It was time to hope that Jarome Iginla would line up Slovakia's Zigmund Palffy and deliver some Iggy-on-Ziggy violence. Michael Farber: U.S., Canada must maintain focusupdated: Fri Feb 26 2010 13:59:00

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- When asked if could pinpoint Slovakia on a map, Team Canada defenseman Dan Boyle immediately blurted, "Umm, right next to the Czech Republic. I know it used to be part of Czechoslovakia, right? So I'll say close to the Czech Republic." Sarah Kwak: Dynasty's in place up northupdated: Fri Feb 26 2010 01:13:00

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The clock hadn't even ticked to :00 by the time the first pair of Canadian gloves hurtled into the air. The 15 players on the bench monitored the scoreboard clock to see when time officially ran out, because you couldn't hear the horn at Canada Hockey Place. You couldn't hear anything but a nation exult, rejoice at realizing a dream: a hockey gold medal right before their eyes. David Epstein: Canadians top podium of the unexpected in women's bobsledupdated: Thu Feb 25 2010 14:30:00

WHISTLER, British Columbia -- If there were to be a bobsled episode of The Twilight Zone, the final two runs of the women's bobsled at the Whistler Sliding Centre Wednesday night would do well as inspiration: Canada, which had zero prior medals in women's bobsled, took gold and silver; the Germans, who had nabbed three of the six medals awarded at the two prior Games that had women's bobsled, went missing from the podium; the USA 2 sled ended up not only as the top American sled, but the third best in the world; and one of the world's best technical drivers crashed herself out of contention.

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Gold to Kim Yu-na of South Korea, silver to Mao Asada of Japan, and a bronze for the ages to Canada's Joannie Rochette. That is E.M.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- There was no stopping it. This big red wave came crashing down on the Russians Wednesday evening: One weapon after another, smart and tough, squeezing them for time and space. The big red wave kept rolling, playing less under pressure than with it -- welcoming it now -- pushed by the swell of pride from the thousands circling the ice and the arena and the city, too. Getzlaf, Boyle, Nash: The wave came at the Russians, pushed them under early, never allowed even the slightest bit of air. Alexander Wolff: At own Olympics, Canada proves a fourth to be reckoned withupdated: Thu Feb 25 2010 10:10:00

On the 12-step road to recovery, they say the first task is to face and acknowledge reality.

Sarah Kwak: Blogging epic Canada-Russia showdownupdated: Wed Feb 24 2010 19:30:00

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- How's this for anticipation? The Russian reporters here have been asking Canada about this match against Russia since Monday, when the home team still had to play Germany to get there. They've been asking Sidney Crosby: Are you disappointed that the dream final of Canada and Russia is going to happen much sooner? Crosby, of course, deflects, but once the brackets were decided, everybody realized just what was on. Yes, this is an earlier-than-expected meeting, but so was the Pittsburgh-Washington series last spring. That didn't make it any less epic.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The buzz around town surrounding what's being dubbed "Super Sunday" is palpable.

Michael Farber: USA not sharp in tuneup for Canadaupdated: Fri Feb 19 2010 02:04:00

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Obviously they didn't tell the whole story of Canada at the Opening Ceremonies of the XXI Olympic Winter Games. A casual viewer of the pomp a week ago might have assumed these few acres of snow, as Voltaire once described New France, were populated only by dance-crazed native peoples and enthusiastic fiddlers. Clearly VANOC slighted the huge proportion of the Canadian population that is of Scandinavian extraction. Alexander Wolff: Gaffes galore at the Glitch Gamesupdated: Thu Feb 18 2010 00:45:00

I want to be careful how I say this, lest I come off as an arrogant American casting stones from a house of crystal. For the fact is, the U.S. has staged two of the least satisfying Olympics ever: The 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta, a festival of tastelessness that had all the atmosphere of spring break; and the 1980 Winter Games, which made "organized by Lake Placid" a gag line among international sports officials and press for years. But the list of glitches at these Olympics, already long, grew by two on Tuesday. Michael Farber: Iginla sparks Canada's opening win over Norwayupdated: Wed Feb 17 2010 01:00:00

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The long national nightmare ended at precisely 6:18 p.m. PDT on a soothing Sunday when a scoreboard at the bottom of Cypress Mountain flashed the final standings. Canada exhaled. The man who brought such relief is preternaturally upbeat fellow named Alexandre Bilodeau, a moguls skier who bumped his way down a 250-meter course and into the sporting history of his country. Michael Farber: What the Olympic Games mean to Canadaupdated: Fri Feb 12 2010 10:14:00

Canada's Olympic home losing streak began July 18, 1976, a day after the opening ceremonies in Montreal, trudged depressingly through Calgary 1988 and now stands at 0-for-244 as an expectant nation awaits the lighting of the cauldron for the XXI Olympic Winter Games.

After competing in the 1984 Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, as a member of Team Canada, I made USA Today's quote of the day by commenting on the notion of pro hockey players participating in the Olympics. In 25 years, a lot has changed -- not the least of which is there is no longer a Yugoslavia and NHL stars now dominate the Games. My old opinion, and my published quote, have vanished. Allan Muir: Team Canada's cloudy goaltendingupdated: Tue Aug 25 2009 12:20:00

A year ago, goaltending appeared to be the one position that was nailed down for the Canadians as they began their preparations for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Martin Brodeur was the returning hero from the 2002 gold medal team. Roberto Luongo was the heir apparent. And some lucky youngster would earn a coveted seat at Canada Hockey Place to watch all the action from the stands. Michael Farber: Why Crosby is not Team Canada's best choice as captainupdated: Tue Aug 25 2009 10:08:00

CALGARY -- The vox populi in the Calgary Herald decided Monday in a result often associated with Soviet elections that the esteemed Jarome Iginla should be the next Captain Canada, the man with the scarlet letter (on the white uniforms) when a hockey-daft nation plays in the Olympics next February in Vancouver.
