NEW YORK -- Dan Bylsma was in a restaurant at a hockey rink when Sidney Crosby scored the golden goal at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. His sons game over, he settled in to watch the Canada-U.S. final. "When the puck spun off the boards and Sidney broke from the (faceoff) dot to the net, I got up from my chair," the Pittsburgh Penguins head coach recalled. "I had a pretty good notion that he was going to put that (puck) home for the win." "Mixed emotions, thats for sure," he added. On Saturday, Bylsma was introduced as coach of the U.S. hockey team at the Sochi Olympics, giving him 220 days to scheme against his Penguins captain, not to mention Russian superstar Evgeni Malkin. The participation of NHL players at the 2014 Winter Games has yet to be confirmed. But NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is slated to meet Monday with the NHL Players Association, International Olympic Committee and International Ice Hockey Federation to finalize a deal. Other candidates for the Sochi Team USA coaching job were reportedly John Tortorella of the Vancouver Canucks and Peter Laviolette of the Philadelphia Flyers. Ron Wilson coached the Americans in 2010 at Vancouver. On Friday, USA Hockey named Nashville Predators president and GM David Poile as general manager of the American team. Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero will serve as associate general manager and Anaheim Ducks consultant Brian Burke will be director of player personnel. Bylsma did not hide his lack of international coaching experience. When a reporter referred to him as not having "much experience coaching internationally," Bylsma was quick to correct him. "I dont have any experience," he said. "So very littles wrong." But he said he has already started educating himself and plans to continue consulting others to gain more experience. Bylsma will no doubt be surrounded by experienced assistant coaches and USA Hockey has already made some recommendations. "Its a little bit in Dans court right now to filter through that and well be back together in a few days to see where that takes us," said Poile. The 42-year-old Bylsma noted he was following in the footsteps of 17 U.S. Olympic head coaches. "And what an honour and privilege that is. And a responsibility. I feel the legacy even that runs through Pittsburgh in (Badger) Bob Johnson in 76 and Herb Brooks in 1980," he said. Poile said the U.S. pool of talent may have caught people by surprise in 2010. But while that group will be even more talented in 2014, the Americans will have to face the challenge of playing on bigger ice in Russia. "Weve got to tune up our thinking a little bit and the type of players were going to choose," he said. And while veterans of the 2010 silver-medal squad will form the core of the Sochi roster, Poile said expect "some new and some different type of players on that team." The U.S. team plans an orientation camp for Aug. 25-29 in Washington, D.C. "Hockey in our country has come to a point where winning gold medals is not a miracle, its an expectation," said Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey. Bylsma also referenced the 1980 Miracle on Ice, when an unheralded U.S. team won Olympic gold in Lake Placid. "I think I dreamt about winning an Olympic gold medal longer than Ive dreamed about winning the Stanley Cup," said Bylsma, who won the Cup in 2009 with Pittsburgh. "It dates back to that 1980 team." Asked about the film "Miracle," which tells the story of that 1980 Olympic squad, Bylsma confessed he had watched part of it a few days ago with his son and his sons cousin at the family cottage in Michigan. He knew he was going to be named coach, but had been sworn to secrecy at the time so only his wife knew in the family. "The scene where Herbs in the kitchen and hes having kind of a conversation with his wife, Im like Thats me and thats Mary Beth," he said with a laugh. "I watched half of that movie, just really freshly knowing I was going to be head coach of the team, it was kind of a surreal little moment." Bylsma, winner of the 2011 Jack Adams Award as the NHLs Most Outstanding Coach, as a career NHL coaching record of 201-93-25. As a forward, he played 429 career games from 1995 to 2004 with Los Angeles and Anaheim. "A guy that any player would want to play for, any parent would want their kid playing for," said Flyers right-winger Mike Knuble, who comes from the same area in Michigan and was a workout partner when Bylsma was a player. "Hes an up-and-coming guy. Hes proven that he can win. He coaches in a high-profile city with high-profile players and has shown that he can handle them and handle some of the egos. "When you get those teams together in the Olympics, there are a ton of them. You get 20 different egos going. Guys are used to being the man, so its how youre going to handle that. And I seem to think that he has a good grasp on how to handle egos and keep everyone pulling in the same direction." Shero called Bylsma "a great leader of athletes and players." Bylsma said while he understands the responsibility of his Olympic role, he doesnt see it as taking on the weight of a nation. "I wouldnt use the word weight but it does feel completely different," he said. USA Hockey has once again assembled an impressive braintrust for its national team, with an advisory committee featuring GMs Stan Bowman of Chicago, Paul Holmgren of Philadelphia, Dean Lombardi of Los Angeles, and Dale Tallon of Florida, as well as Pittsburgh scout Don Waddell, a former GM. The group has more than 150 years of NHL GM experience and six Stanley Cups, according to USA Hockey. Joe Haden Steelers Jersey .

Mason Rudolph Steelers Jersey .com) - A pair of programs shooting for their 10th win of the season get together at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, as the NC State Wolfpack tangle with 22nd-ranked West Virginia during the challenge round of the Gotham Classic.On Thursday, Jurgen Klopp and Louis van Gaal go head to head for the seventh time in their managerial careers when Manchester United look to overturn Liverpools two-goal advantage in their Europa League last-16 tie. Ahead of the meeting at Old Trafford, we examine the history of their rivalry… Louis van Gaal certainly had the better of his first Premier League encounter with Jurgen Klopp, when a late strike from Wayne Rooney gave Manchester United a 1-0 win at Anfield in January. The Dutchman called it a big step in the right direction, while Klopp was left to rue a string of missed scoring chances.It was not the first time Van Gaal has come out on top. During his time in the Bundesliga, there was the thrill of taking his Bayern Munich side to Klopps Borussia Dortmund and winning 5-1; a demolition that turned his teams season around and would eventually take Bayern to within one game of a treble. Klopp got his own back the following season, however, when Dortmund blitzed Bayern in their own backyard. It was described by Munich-based journalist Christian Eichler as a masterpiece, and one that confirmed Dortmunds rise. They went on to win the double. Van Gaal was gone within weeks. Liverpool v Man Utd Follow the game across the Sky Sports platforms with our live blog Heres the tale of their six previous matches against each other…Dortmund 1 Bayern 5 - Sep 12 2009We have to work hard in midfield and not allow them too much space, said Klopp beforehand, but while Mats Hummels opened the scoring, goals from Mario Gomez, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Franck Ribery and a Thomas Muller brace ensured an emphatic win for the visitors. Jurgen Klopps record against Louis Van Gaal P W D L GF GA 5 2 0 3 7 10 The goal by Ribery was particularly significant as the Frenchman pointedly sprinted to celebrate with Van Gaal, ending speculation about a rift between the two men. I am always pleased when a player wants to celebrate his goal with me, said Van Gaal. Franck has shown that he loves his coach.Bayern 3 Dortmund 1 - Feb 13 2010Dortmund competed for much of the match in Munich but the game ended in defeat for the visitors - a tenth in a row for Klopp against Bayern. Mohamed Zidan gave Dortmund the lead but goals from Mark van Bommel, Arjen Robben and Gomez took the game away from them. Arjen Robben escapes a Dortmund tackle as Jurgen Klopp watches on in 2010 Klopp put some of the blame on referee Knut Kircher - these mistakes do not make it more fun - but also pointed to his teams missed chances. We had several huge opportunities, he said afterwards. Still, it was a strong performance by my boys.Dortmund 2 Bayern 0 - Oct 3 2010Klopp finally got a win over Bayern and his teams sixth in a row as they punished Van Gaals men at the Westfalenstadion. Goals from Lucas Barrios and Nuri Sahin heaped the pressure on the Dutchman after a difficult start to the season. Van Gaal and Klopp ahead of the match at Signal Iduna Park in October 2010 Its high time everybody woke up, said Uli Hoeness after seeing Bayern succumb to a third defeat in seven games. Van Gaal, meanwhile, urged calm. The season is still very long, he said. It is difficult, but we must have faith. Even so, Bayerns Oktoberfest celebrations were cancelled.Bayern 1 Dortmund 3 - Feb 26 2011Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke had called the title talk totally unrealistic after the first match against Bayern but by February it was a very different situation. A 3-1 win in Munich, their first Bundesliga victory there in two decades, ended Bayerns hopes and put BVB on the brink. Dortmund got their first Bundesliga win at Bayern in 20 years in February 2011 Barrios scored early and while Luiz Gustavo levelled things up, goalss by Sahin and Hummels earned Dortmund the points - taking them 16 clear of Bayern.ddddddddddddThis was the youngest Dortmund side in Bundesliga history with an average age of 22 and even Van Gaal admitted they deserved to win.Liverpool 0 Manchester United 1 - Jan 17 2016Klopps first experience of Liverpool and Manchester Uniteds famous rivalry ended in bitter disappointment at Anfield. The hosts bombarded the opposition goal, having 19 shots to Uniteds seven, but they were let down by poor finishing and frustrated by David de Geas heroics. Wayne Rooney scores Manchester Uniteds winner at Anfield in January Van Gaal admitted United were second best in the first half, but they withstood Liverpools pressure before Rooney thumped home a loose ball in the 78th minute after Marouane Fellainis header had struck the crossbar. It was the strikers first goal in 11 years at Anfield. We lost a game that we should not have lost, said a rueful Klopp.Liverpool 2 Manchester United 0 - March 10 2016There was to be no repeat of Uniteds smash-and-grab victory when the sides met on the European stage for the first time in their revered histories. Having seen his side fail to convert a host of chances in January, Klopp was not disappointed as Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino beat an inspired De Gea as the Reds took full control of the tie. Roberto Firmino nets against Manchester United A raucous crowd created an atmosphere to rival some of the great European nights at Anfield, and Van Gaal called upon the Old Trafford faithful to replicate the noise in the build-up to his seventh meeting with Klopp. We can also create an atmosphere [at Old Trafford] like Liverpool, The Dutchman said. So everything is possible.What does this tell us about Klopp?For Klopp, games against Van Gaal offer the contrast between chaos and control; the importance of pressing versus possession. Hell be encouraged by the knowledge that it can work but has also experienced what can happen when his team doesnt get it right.The German has had particular joy early on against his Dutch counterpart. His sides have scored within the first 10 minutes in three of their first four matches against each other and the sort of aggressive pressing witnessed in the 4-1 win over Manchester City in October could be the template. The first 30 or 35 minutes was as good as anything I can remember, not from Klopp or any Liverpool team, but in the Premier League, said Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher after that game. It was like the Red Arrows watching Liverpool, they were just running through people all the time.But while high-intensity pressing could give the Reds an early advantage, Januarys meeting at Anfield showed a gameplan is worthless if you cant finish your chances.What does this tell us about Van Gaal?In a sense, the series of Bundesliga games against Klopps Dortmund are a microcosm of Van Gaals problems at United. There were signs of control in the first season but what was once perceived as clinical soon came to be seen as sterile.In the season prior to Van Gaals arrival, Bayerns game against Dortmund made Bundesliga history. There were 48 shots, the most since records began, with 35 of them coming from Bayern. In the first meeting between the sides in 2010, Bayern had only 11 shots to Dortmunds 17 but won 3-1.The next time that the teams met, Bayern once again controlled possession, enjoying 62 per cent of the ball, but by this stage they couldnt find the net. The reduction in the number of chances was not seen as a factor by Van Gaal, and yet his words will feel familiar to United fans. We dominate and create four, five chances and we dont score, said Van Gaal. Dortmund dont have any chances but the first shot on goal goes in. Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge put it slightly differently. We have concerns, he said. We have to start to score.Curiously, though, the opposite was true at Anfield in January, when United scored with their only shot on target and Liverpool missed a host of chances. They atoned for that at the first time of asking, but that victory will be in vein if they fail to progress into the Europa League quarter-finals at the expense of their north-west rivals.ConclusionStyles make fights and if history is a clue then Klopp versus Van Gaal promises to entertain. Klopps gegenpressing or Van Gaals control?Will Manchester United leave Anfield with a first-leg lead? Or will Liverpool make their home advantage count?
