OAR outlast Germany for Olympic ice hockey gold in overtime classic

Ice Hockey- Winter Olympics Day 13

What could go wrong for Germany in the gold medal game of the Olympics men's hockey tournament?

On the final day of this year's Games in Pyeongchang, 20-year-old Kirill Kaprizov scored the golden goal victor with just over 10 minutes of overtime remaining.

With Germany's Patrick Reimer off for high sticking midway through the extra period, the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation went on a four-on-three man advantage and Kaprizov hit a pass from Nikita Gusev past German goaltender Danny aus den Birken. Kirill Kaprizov (OAR): Scored the golden goal on an OAR power play to cap four-point night.

According to Yahoo Sports, as the Winter Olympics [VIDEO] were coming to a close, the Olympic Athletes from #Russia defeated #Germany 4-3, securing the gold medal.

Why is Albertsons Purchasing Rite Aid?
The new company will operate approximately 4,900 locations, 4,350 pharmacies, and 320 clinics across 38 states and Washington D.C. And, with retail stocks in general being hammered by the disruption of online shopping, it is a buyers' market.

They took it upon themselves, however, to sing the national anthem in a move which broke the IOC's set of "conduct guidelines" for the OAR team published last month. "This match was the most important one in my life". "I have accomplished my dream".

The International Olympic Committee disqualified the entire Russian team from the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, as a result of a probe into alleged widespread doping violations by the country's athletes and sporting officials. They made a good run for gold before finishing with runner-up silver. "Now I have no dream", he told the media after the event, via The Herald Sun. But just as it appeared the Germans would be able to carry a goalless draw into the first intermission, OAR caught a late break when a failed clearing attempt led to a turnover, which allowed Nikita Gusev to throw a pass back to Slava Voynov for a one-time goal with half a second remaining in the first.

The biggest difference between Russia's and Germany's teams is the number of National Hockey League players they boast. It's also their best ever finish in ice hockey.

Gusev netted a steep-angle shot with 6:39 remaining in regulation time for a 2-1 lead, only for Germany's Dominik Kahun to equalise 10 seconds later. "We didn't win Olympics since '92", Kovalchuk said.

Prior to this medal, Germany's ice hockey has combined for an underwhelming two bronze medals, both coming from the Men's team in 1976 and 1932. Germany played a near ideal first period, but Voinov's goal looked to be a backbreaker that would lead to the eventual OAR route.
