I think it's safe to say that Matt Dalton is the best goalie South Korea has ever produced.


He is one of the six Canadians playing for the Korean team ( not including the squad's Canadian coach Jim Paek).

Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock dialled in and gave the Homan-led Olympic Curling team -- Canada's Women's entry-- a  much-needed pep talk to bost confidence & morale.  At that point, the Women who were winless in three starts, routed the American entry 11-3.

It sure won't hurt to inherit some Babcock Olympic luck, he havimg coached the Men's Hockey squad to successive Golds (Vancouver 2010 & Sochi 2014).

Shortly after Canada's decisive 11-3 victory over the United States on Saturday its first win of the tournament the team received an unexpected phone call.

Just hours after his own team's 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock dialled Homan's team.

"We were just finishing up our team debrief meeting around midnight, and then Cheryl [Bernard, the team's alternate] came into the room with a phone call for Rachel, and it was Mike Babcock," team second Joanne Courtney wrote in a blog for Curling Canada.

It was a brief conversation, but he wanted to let the team know he had seen parts of their win against the Americans and to stay focused.

"We have so much respect for him as a coach, and he's such a great guy, and for him to be watching and thinking of us, it was really neat to hear his words and hear that he's pulling for us," Courtney wrote.

"He just reminded us to keep our heads down, working as hard as we can to get the results we want. It really helped motivate us for our game today against Switzerland."

It was a day of pride on the slopes as Canada's Alex Beaulieu Marchand, nicknamed ABM, placed third in the Men's Ski Slopestyle event coming away with a Bronze.



Quite the story for Canada's Kim Boutin in winning Beonze in the Women's 1500 metres Short track Speedskating evenr.
Amid "death threats", a determined Boutin kept prevailing, as she skated to her second Bronze of the Games.

Boutin had earlier won Bronze  in the 500 metres after a South Korean competitor was disqualified due to interference and enabling Boutin to nab third.



Canada's Samuel Girard win Gold in the Men's 1000 metres Short track Speedskating event.

Placement (Relegation Round):

Team Japan overcame Team Swieden 2-1 in OT.


Results for Sunday Feb.18:

Team Canada peppered forty shots at Team Korea goaltender Mike Salton, and came away with a 4-0 triumph, in a rather unconvincing win.

Eric O'Dell, Christian Thomas, Maxim Lapierre, and Gibert Brule were the Canadian scorers.

While Canada did outshoot Korea 18-2 in the first and 13-3 in the second period, somehow this group didn't seem affirm the idea that it can dominate, especially playing against a hockey rookie country such as Korea.

Kevin Poulin stood in goal for the Canadians, coming off a shootout loss earlier to the Czech Republic.

Elsewhere, Team Czech Republic downed Team Switzerland 4-1; while Team Sweden defeated Team Finland 3-1.
