Just please, anything but a shootout.
I didn't get to watch - make up call to end the US powerplay, then Canada later gets a power play instead of a deserved penalty shot?
I'm not even sure it should've been a penalty shot
As a Canadian, I can say that live, it looked like it should have been.
On the first replay (from one angle), it looked like it should have been.
On the second replay (from a different angle)....I'm not so sure she even touched Wickenheiser.
I can fully understand why the refs called it a penalty at full speed, but I can't understand why it wasn't called a penalty shot when they made that decision.
#427: The airport one? That was pretty much my reaction.
A question for Canadians, since I never played hockey on ice: when you're in the box of shame and your penalty expires, what determines whether you join the play or skate right across to the bench? Does the coach tell you when you go to the box, is it a "green-light" thing with the coach, or is it a read based on where the play is?
Justin Faulk stepping in in his place.
You know, one thing I haven't heard is who is the home team for this game. Do they even have one?
As a Bruin fan the worst part of the Olympics has been the NBCSports commercial showing the Blackhawks last second victory in the finals last year.
The thing that struck me is that the complaint about the Canadians has always been "they don't play well on the big ice" but today the US looked befuddled by the ice surface.
Wow, Bob just dropped the hammer there.
How the #### do the slalom racers know where to go? The poles seem everywhere but they just ignore some and go through others. Is it clearer on the course where the course actually is?
Did Bob Costas say something?
#467: Wat? Doc is from Indiana and Olczyk is from Chicago. Unless you're watching the CBC or something.
Apparently three of the four on ice officials for tomorrow's game are Canadian. Swedes are not happy.
Finland, a lot better than people think.
I think there's some pretty solid statistical evidence that a goalie should never start back-to-backs (unless the gap between the backup and the starter is enormous). I think we saw some evidence of that today.
Which is kind of weird. They seem like they are always medaling.
Any chance this is the end of taking Brian Burke seriously?
No they haven't.
And after being shut out for the second time in a row following a lopsided 5-0 loss to Finland in Saturday's bronze medal game, Quick couldn't understand why his team failed to bounce back better from the 1-0 defeat to Canada the night before.
"??It shouldn'??t be too hard,"? he told NBC Pro Hockey Talk. "We do that all year long. We're professionals. We play back-to-backs all year long.
"There'??s no reason we show up and not piss a drop."
Quick didn't fail to put some of the blame for the loss on himself though.
“My job is to stop the puck, and I didn’t do that very well,” he said. “Team effort. We weren’t good.”
I'm sure that Latvian kid would have come out and played his heart out if they had a game the day after the Canada game.
Congratulations to the Russian athletes on bringing pride to your country, but a big #### you to Vladimir Putin.
I thought David Poile (Nashville) was the GM...or was Burke still around as some kind of consigliere?
I won't miss opening a thread with a giant picture of a toilet everyday at work
