Obama, Harper make wagers on USA-Canada games @NHLdotcom

The stakes for the United States vs. Canada gold-medal game in women's hockey and semifinal in men's hockey at the 2014 Sochi Olympics have been ratcheted up a notch.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper are making a pair of friendly wagers.
