Ohio State's women's hockey coach, Nate Handrahan, resigned last week after an investigation found he had a history of inappropriate conduct, including sexualized comments, retaliation for anyone raising concerns to the administration, and telling players to "get horny for the puck."

Canada beat the U.S. women's hockey team in OT for the gold medal, after coming back from an 2-0 hole with minutes left in the third and dodging an empty net rim-out. Marie-Philip Poulin—who also put in the equalizer—scored the winner on a power play goal after a Hilary Knight penalty.
The Swiss took bronze in the women's Olympic hockey tournament today, thanks to this heads up play by 15-year-old forward Alina Muller. Down 3-2 with just over two minutes left to play, the Swedish team pulled its goalie to get an extra attacker on the ice. One minute later, Muller sent home the empty netter.
The Japanese women's hockey team made Russia work for a 2-1 win today, to the surprise of many. But Japan's played much better than predicted, losing closely in two games against much better competition. On top of that, they've been a lot of fun both on and off the ice.

The Swiss women were down 2-0 to Canada in the second period but had a chance to cut the lead in half on a power play. Unfortunately, this little bit of behind-the-back hot doggery gave Canada a short-handed breakaway and a 3-0 lead. The second period has ended and it is now 5-0.
The photo caption merely reads, "Volunteers push Switzerland goaltender Florence Schelling in a trolley as she leaves the Shayba Arena following a practice session." That explains nothing!
That up there was the mask U.S. women's hockey goalie Jessie Vetter was going to wear at the Sochi Olympics. At least until the IOC forced her to take an image of the Constitution off the back.
USA-Canada is quickly becoming the kind of grudge match you can respect and not one that makes you feel uncomfortable for Robert DeNiro. Prior to last night's throwdown in Grand Forks, these two teams also had a massive brawl in October in Burlington, Vermont. That's two fights in in three months and we're not even…
