There was more heartbreak for U.S. hockey on Friday.

A day after the women's team was upset by Canada in the gold medal game, the men's hockey team lost 1-0 to Canada in the semifinals.

Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars scored the only goal early in the second period.

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price stopped all 30 American shots.

Americans and Canadians watching the game understandably obviously had different opinions on its outcome.

We caught up with fans of both teams watching the game at a West Village bar.

Reactions ranged from disappointment to jubilation.

"It hurts. But the nice thing is is that hockey's really getting a lot better in America," said one American fan. "It's not this secondary sport, I feel like, anymore. People get really into Olympic hockey."

Canadian fan: I feel great.
Q: Did you know all along that Canada would win?
Canadian fan: Of course. I'm a good Canadian.

"It's a little bitter because we always like to consider us as the better country, but you know, it is what it is," said another American fan. "They played great, and there's not really much we can do."

"It's better placing rather than not being seen at all," said a third American fan. "It's a good effort on our part, but it definitely, we can do our best to beat Finland."

Canada also beat the United States in the 2010 Olympic gold medal game. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
