In case you needed added incentive for a USA-Canada Olympic men's hockey final, here it is. Several players on the two teams have pledged to donate $100 to the You Can Play project for every goal they score. Part of the donation will go to an LGBT Russian organization. Canada and the United States play their semifinal games today. The donating players to watch are: James Van Riemsdyk, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry & Dustin Penner. The quartet has only mustered one goal so far, so let's hope for a 9-8 final!
In addition, YCP co-founder Patrick Burke has a pledge wager with New York Giants general manager Kevin Abrams involving players for the women's teams. The two will donate for every goal scored by two players, both of whom have made it to the gold-medal game: Burke for the United States' Hilary Knight and Abrams for Canada's Haley Wickenheiser. The two teams hit the ice for the gold medal on Thursday.
