(CNN) — For the second time in 24 hours, Canada broke U.S. hockey hearts.
Using their speed and strength to control much of the play, the Canadians knocked their southern neighbors out of gold medal contention for the second straight Olympics with a 1-0 victory in a riveting men’s semifinal match Friday.
The victory came a day after the Canadian women won the gold medal by coming back in the final minutes to beat the Americans in overtime.
Canada needed no late heroics Friday, outshooting the United States 36-31 and testing American goalie Jonathan Quick from all angles.
The loser of Friday’s game apparently, has to keep embattled pop star Justin Bieber, that’s according to a Chicago billboard.
In the billboard which features Chicago Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, proclaims “Loser Keeps Bieber.”
The midday game prompted many to play hooky to local bars including PIX11’s Andrew Ramos who has more of the fan reaction in his report above.
