Flip.

Let's go Finland! Remember the Winter War!!!
   302. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 19, 2014 at 10:19 AM (#4658895)
Fins are playing on the backfoot a little more than I 'd like but as the NBC guys noted they look comfortable. They aren't desperately defending and they're keeping the Russians outside. If the Russians can get one back and make it a one goal game this is going to get hairy.
   303. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 10:21 AM (#4658897)
This would be an epic choke job by the Russians if they can't even get into a position to win a medal on home soil.
It would set up a FANTASTIC semi-final between Finland/Sweden.
However, the Canadian/US broadcasters would be upset that a US/Russia or Canada/Russia final would be missed. BIG ratings to be had for either of those games.
   304. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 10:26 AM (#4658901)
The Canadian broadcasters have pointed out before that the Russians are a "team of individuals", and this becomes more pronounced when they fall behind in a game. The stars try individual rushes, and that's not going to work against a strong team like Finland.
   305. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 19, 2014 at 10:30 AM (#4658904)
The Russians need to start playing "dirty." Not in a cheating kind of way but just throwing everything at the net and putting bodies in front of Rask. He's way to comfortable right now. As a Bruin fan I can tell you that a Tuukka Rask who is in a rhythm and unmolested is virtually unbeatable. Gotta get in his face a bit.
   306. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 19, 2014 at 10:46 AM (#4658914)
That was as pitiful job of trying to come back in a game as I can remember seeing by a team with that much talent. The last few minutes were horrendous.

I'm happy to see the US finally put the obvious checking line of Brown-Backes-Callahan together against Plekanec-Jagr.

Annnd as I type that they combine for a goal.
   311. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 01:41 PM (#4659021)
That's a back-breaker goal by Backes as the end of the period.
   312. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 01:48 PM (#4659026)
Dear Team Canada,

You've done the polite thing, letting Latvia have a period to think they are in this game.
If you could do your fans and countrymen a favour by scoring, oh I don't know, 4 goals in the second period, that would be swell.
I would like to go into my meeting at 1:30pm knowing the game is in hand.

Sincerely,
RTG

Like Belarus over Sweden in 2002.

In baseball terms, a men's semi-pro league team beating a perennial World Series favourite.
In basketball terms, Angola beating USA.

Holy ####, the Netherlands didn't sweep the Women's 5000m, and they allowed a Czech woman to take the gold.

Man, there's a Mets joke here I am not going to make. Go Latvia? What's the consensus? Do we want to see an historic upset or is our bond with our poutine loving neighbors to the north strong enough that we'd like to see their blushes spared?
   317. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:11 PM (#4659044)
I think a USA/Canada semifinal would be a barn burner, so I'm pulling for the US to make it there with Canada.
   318. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:12 PM (#4659046)
I keep forgetting how damn small Martin St. Louis is, and then I see him standing near other Canadian players and realize he's a pipsqueak.
   319. Mess with the Meat, you get the Wad! Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:13 PM (#4659049)
The us continues to look pretty good. Canada should be very worried.

I think Canada's plenty worried about today's game!

I'm finding it hard not cheering for Latvia (well, to be more accurate, I'm just plain cheering for Latvia), this is all kinds of stressful hockey.
   321. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:28 PM (#4659055)
Dear Team Canada,

You've done the STUPID thing, letting Latvia have TWO PERIODS to think they are in this game.
If you could do your fans and countrymen a favour by scoring, oh I don't know, at least 2 goals in the THIRD period, that would be swell.
I now go into my meeting slightly worried.

Grudgingly,
RTG
   322. zack Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:40 PM (#4659065)
You have a meeting in Canada during an international hockey game in which Canada is participating? For shame.

Gos Teams Latvias!
   323. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:42 PM (#4659069)
I don't hate that the US can roll four lines over the final 20 minutes while Canada needs to play 20 tough minutes. Not rooting for any injury but if they want to get worn down I'm ok with that.
   324. Langer Monk Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:44 PM (#4659071)
I'm surprised they didn't call an emergency cessation of all Canadian activity for the third period, so the nation can concentrate.
   325. Mess with the Meat, you get the Wad! Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:50 PM (#4659077)
That dude for latvia will be hurting for awhile after that
   326. Shooty Survived the Shutdown of '14! Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:57 PM (#4659084)
I think that must be as mathematically as close as you can get to a goal without getting a goal right there.
   327. Mess with the Meat, you get the Wad! Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:57 PM (#4659085)
No goal puck has to completly cross the line correct?
   328. Langer Monk Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:57 PM (#4659088)
Correct - should be a penalty shot though for using hand in the crease.
   329. President of the David Eckstein Fan Club Posted: February 19, 2014 at 02:59 PM (#4659090)
I didn't realize Luis Suarez played hockey for Latvia!

Should have been a penalty shot but...my heart can't help but smile for Latvia's luck

The announcers of the game didn't bring up the penalty shot for handling the puck in the crease. Is that an international rule, too, or are the announcers just ignorant on this point?

Announcers were ignorant. The CBC guys were all over the ref for not calling for a penalty shot.

I stayed up last night to watch the Canada/GBR women's curling semi-final (pretty good game, better result), never expecting I'd actually need to watch the hockey game. I'm lucky I woke up just now.

He was in a remote location, so the computer screen was showing his bullcrap instead of the game.
Seriously, we were not happy here in Canuckistan with having to go to the meeting.

Edit: Sometimes I can't comprehend how HARD those point shots are.
   341. Langer Monk Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:08 PM (#4659108)
Reading the IIHF rules - I'm not sure if it should have been a 2 minute minor or a penalty shot - it's not terribly clear.
   342. President of the David Eckstein Fan Club Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:09 PM (#4659109)
Bah, Latvia almost escaped that PP
   343. Mess with the Meat, you get the Wad! Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:09 PM (#4659111)

   344. zack Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:11 PM (#4659113)
Sorry guys, I switched from USA-CZR to CAN-LAT and Canada scored 60 seconds later.
   345. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:11 PM (#4659114)
Mike Babcock and Steve Yzerman never seem to smile.
It's both amazing and weird.
   346. Shooty Survived the Shutdown of '14! Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:12 PM (#4659116)
In fairness, I think Canada would have breezed by in the shootout. The Latvian keeper is knackered.
   347. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 03:12 PM (#4659117)
I hope Canada doesn't play "prevent defense".
Just keep doing what they were doing....

I haven't seen a goaltender this obviously tired since the Van Houten kid needed to be tied to the goalposts just so he could stand up.

Last time I was in Finland, I picked up a Selanne doll in Team Finland attire like the old McFarlane collectibles.... jointed limbs, detachable stick and helmet, and all that.

That was in late 1997. I was watching the Marlins win the World Series on next-day tape delay on NBC Europe!

Yes.

He's the guy that's winning every damn face off that Canada takes.
If that's his contribution to this team this year, I'm okay with that.

The two semi-finals games are now going to be rematches of the last two gold medal games.

Both of them should be intense.

Thank goodness that they are on Friday, as that is my usual "work from home" day.

In the over-40 category, Sandis Ozolinsh didn't impress quite as much as Selanne and Jagr.
   363. zack Posted: February 19, 2014 at 04:25 PM (#4659188)
I think Nedved was a more effective 42-year-old than Jagr today, but then he didn't have Backes trying to smash his face into the boards on every shift.
   364. Random Transaction Generator Posted: February 19, 2014 at 04:31 PM (#4659197)
I've found it a bit odd that Nedved can play for Czechoslovakia as a junior, play for Canada in the Olympics (in 1994), and play for Czech Republic in 2014.
I would have thought that when he claimed Canadian citizenship for the 1994 Olympics, that was it.
But I guess you can always go home (sorta).
   365. Blackadder Posted: February 19, 2014 at 04:36 PM (#4659202)
I'm dual US-Canadian--my parents are both Canadian, I was born in the US, and grew up mostly in Europe--and I find that my rooting interests in international competitions tends to be sport dependent. So I will root for the US against Canada in, say, the WBC, but for Canada over the US in hockey, and surprisingly found myself supporting England over the US in the last World Cup.

I'm just glad it's the noon game.
   366. zack Posted: February 19, 2014 at 04:39 PM (#4659205)
You're allowed to switch countries once, I don't think he ever played in an IIHF-sanctioned tournament prior to defecting to Canada, so he could switch to the CZR.

Blackadder: heh, so you happen to only root for the overdog?

It's odd to me that they run the second leg of the two-part alpine races worst-to-first. When I was racing as a teenager, they'd go 5-4-3-2-1-6-7-etc, and with the marginal conditions on the mountain it's such a huge disadvantage to go last like that.

I guess it makes for better drama but I'm not sure it's the best at determining a champ.

Well they do, in a way. It's not reverse order from 5 to 1, more like 12 to 1 and then 13+ or something like that. It's not like the guys from Argentina and Bulgaria go first.
   373. zack Posted: February 20, 2014 at 12:11 AM (#4659453)
I think it was 30-1, 31-60. But 30 racers is more than enough to destroy a soft course.
   374. Jim Wisinski Posted: February 20, 2014 at 05:54 AM (#4659492)
What I thought was oddest about it is how there's no reduction of the field from the first to second race other than finishing the first one. So after we knew who the medalists were there were still 49 racers to go in the men's GS.

Has anyone commented yet on how ridiculously athletic Heather Moyse (Gold winning Canadian bobsleigh brakeman) is yet?

She's obviously got some bobsleigh chops, but she also won national medals as a sprinter in university, was MVP of Canada's national rugby team, played varsity soccer, and despite not taking up cycling until 2011, placed 5th in the 500m in the Pro Cycling U.S. Grand Prix of Sprinting in Colorado Springs in 2012. And she's hot.

Edit: Oh yeah, forgot to mention. A good friend of mine went through school with here sister, and he said she was even more athletically gifted than Heather, but she chose to become a medical doctor. Some genes in that family.
   378. zack Posted: February 20, 2014 at 01:24 PM (#4659667)
No, I would guess not. As far as cultural penetration, men's hockey barely registers in the US.

Speaking of which, we're no longer friends for the next ~27 hours. Canada gooing it up early, and the US looking insanely dangerous on the PP but not getting the result.

One thing I often wonder about, if you draw a penalty while on the PP, isn't it in your best interests to get on the 5v3 as soon as possible? 30 seconds of 5v3 is more dangerous than 60 seconds of 5v4, surely.
   385. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: February 20, 2014 at 02:24 PM (#4659719)

I think the two things you're weighing against each other are the benefit of having the 6v4 and having control of the puck rather than having to win a faceoff, vs. the amount of time it takes the goalie to get off and whether 5v3 is better than 6v4.

I'm inclined to think that getting on the 5v3 as quickly as possible is the better move...I think 5v3 is a bigger advantage than 6v4. But I'm not sure how to go about confirming that.

Yes, almost all NHL teams will immediately attempt a shot on net when they see they are going to be 5v3 when whistle blows.
5v3 is better than 6v4, simply because there is more room to move/shoot.

Oh well, one can hope America has used up all its hockey mojo for the next couple days.

Has anyone commented yet on how ridiculously athletic Heather Moyse (Gold winning Canadian bobsleigh brakeman) is yet?


Clara Hughes is the Canadian female multi-sport athlete that impresses me the most.

She was a teenage speed skater, but switched to cycling at age 17.
She won two bronze medals in the 1996 Summer Olympics in cycling (road race and time trial).
She then switched back to speed skating and won a bronze in 2002, a gold and silver in 2006, and a bronze in 2010.
THEN, she went BACK to cycling and finished 5th in the road race in 2012 (at age 39).

(She's the only person to win multiple medals in the summer and winter Olympics, and holds the most medals by anyone to win at least one in the summer and winter Olympics.)

What a ####### move by Spooner.

Clara Hughes is amazing.

Also, wow, that is some puck luck there.

OH MY GOD!

Overtime is 20 minutes of 4 on 4? Is that right? And not sudden death, I guess? And if still tied, they go to shootout?

So many questions... is the mens the same rule?

It's always sudden death in overtime.

That open netter was about 1/2 an inch from a gold medal clinching goal.

If the US doesn't win, that's going to haunt them in their dreams...
