Day Five of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament kicked of with Austria beating Norway at 3:00 a.m. Eastern and ending with USA dominating Slovenia, while Canada needed extra time to best Finland.
For the first time in the tournament, the Red Wings at Sochi failed to score a goal or pick up an assist. This might have to do with the fact that Team
Red Wings Sweden was not in action for day five.
Even without the large contingent of Wings playing there were still plenty of chances for the players who were on the ice.
In other news, Henrik Zetterberg could fly back to Detroit as soon as Tuesday, he has been ruled out of the Olympic and at least Detroit’s first few game after the Olympic break.
