Get ready for a wild and crazy 2018-19 fantasy season. Fantasy managers are going to have their hands full as a number of star players are set to return from serious injuries. Where those players are drafted and how well they perform on the court could make or break many fantasy teams.
Canada had to settle for a disappointing fourth-place finish.
“We wanted to win gold,” Canada forward Bo Horvat said. “We wanted to be in the final. It’s not a result we wanted. But we have to take the positives from this experience and bring it to next year.”
Kreider scored the go-ahead goal for the U.S. in the second period, capitalizing on a mistake by Canada captain Connor McDavid.
Canada answered with a Marc-Edouard Vlasic shot that went in between the pads of goaltender Keith Kinkaid.
Sweden beat Switzerland 3-2 in a shootout for gold later Sunday.
The good news for the Packers as they examine their 2018 schedule is Aaron Rodgers is back, and Green Bay has won the division five out of 10 seasons since he took over as starting quarterback. Minnesota has won the division the last two seasons, and the Vikings are one of four playoff teams on the Packers’ schedule this season. Atlanta visits Lambeau Field, too, and Green Bay has road matchups against New England and the Los Angeles Rams.
Toughest tests: Road games against the Seahawks and Patriots won’t be easy; Green Bay has lost the last three trips to Seattle, starting with the infamous “Fail Mary” game. It’s worth noting that Rodgers has never started a game at Gillette Stadium. The Packers also travel to the West Coast to face a beefed-up Rams team in what could be one of the most entraining games of the season.
Biggest breaks: The Packers avoid a trip to Atlanta, where the Falcons have scorched them three times in the last two seasons. The home schedule is very friendly. Keep in mind Green Bay finished 4-4 at home last season, and that included a 3-0 record with Rodgers.
