“I was just shooting for a hole there, trying to get it through,” Suter said. “Luckily, it went off the backboard. I was just trying to miss that first guy, to be honest with you. I’m not that skilled.”

Parise put the game on ice with his power-play goal in the second period, allowing Team USA fans a chance to exhale and scoreboard watch to see if Canada survived.

“I haven’t really seen them play, but just looking at their roster, some of the most talented and best players in the world,” Parise said. “It’s two teams that bring out the best in each other.”

Russia also brought that out of Team USA in that epic game that ended in the eighth shootout. A reporter asked Parise if he’s at all disappointed that the host team got knocked out of the tournament before the semifinals. Parise smiled.

“We’re not upset that they’re out with how good they are,” he said. “When guys like Kovalchuk, Ovechkin and Malkin aren’t in the tournament anymore, it’s pretty nice.”

Just as long as no one eats their coach.
