Petr Koukal and Jan Kovar scored in the shootout to give the Czech Republic a 3-2 win on Saturday and hand two-time defending gold medal victor Canada their first Olympic men's ice hockey loss since the Vancouver Games in 2010. The game ended when Maxim Noreau's shootout attempt slipped off the post behind Czech goalie Pavel Francouz allowing the Czechs to win 2-1 in the penalty shot portion of the program.

Elsewhere, the Czech Republic edged Canada in a shootout to take control of Group A after two games.

Ice Hockey - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Men's Preliminary Round Match - Canada v Czech Republic - Gangneung Hockey Centre, Gangneung, South Korea - February 17, 2018 - Canadian (in black) and Czech Republic players shake hands after the game.

Mason Raymond's power-play goal 73 seconds into the first period put Canada ahead but fellow Swiss-leaguer Dominik Kubalik equalised for the Czechs just five minutes and 39 seconds later. "It comes down to one game and you've got to win".

"They're going to have a lot of scoring chances and we just have to protect our house and get our goals".

Wojtek Wolski scored for Canada but Koukal lifted a backhand shot over Scrivens to level after two rounds.

The Czech pressure also led to some questionable decisions with the puck, as later in the first Marc-Andre Gragnani made a pass from his own corner to Raymond in front of the Canadian net, where Roman Cervenka picked his pocket and almost scored.

Sporting News Canada will provide live updates throughout Canada's game against the Czech Republic beginning Friday at 10 pm ET.

Still, Russia, the United States and now Canada have all lost in the preliminary round. They played the Czechs 2-1. Group play ends Sunday with the Czechs facing Switzerland and the Canadians up against the South Koreans. Kubalik was able to beat Scrivens.

Rene Bourque, who played 12 National Hockey League seasons before joining a Swedish club last August, netted a power-play goal with six minutes and 30 seconds remaining in the opening period to restore Canada's edge. Scrivens stopped a pair of shots from Roman Horak and Michal Birner, but couldn't contain the rebounds, and former Carolina Hurricane Michal Jordan snatched the loose puck and went top shelf.

Both Czech goals came off some scrambly play in the Canadian zone.
