U.S. men’s hockey team loses to Canada, keeps Bieber

After defeating the United States 1-0 in the semifinals of the Olympics men’s hockey tournament Friday night, Canada advances to a gold medal match with Sweden on Sunday.
U.S. goalie Jonathan Quick made 36 saves, but the U.S. team was not able to overcome Canada, whose Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars scored in the second period. The Canadians now have a chance to win their third gold medal in four Olympics this Sunday. The U.S. will challenge Finland on Saturday for the bronze.
Instead of medals, Twitter offered an alternative prize for the Olympic hockey winner with the hashtag #loserkeepsbieber.
This match follows the U.S. women’s 3-2 loss in overtime to Canada on Thursday.
