Wow, this place has come a long way. The WJC has it's own thread. Good job Woodtoo. Hoping USA wins tonight. Don't really like Team Canada as the " underdog ". Doesn't seem right. But it's the world we live in. USA!!!!

Canada out played us in the first period. Our forwards have been lazy getting back. Letting two d-man score. We've had our chances to score but shoot wide when we do. We better get the next goal or we are in serious trouble.

Canada may be betting favorite. But when they lost to USA in the first game, and have had pretty shaky goaltending so far. The Canadian players read and focus on twitter and internet telling them they can't win. So they have a psychological edge. Playing at home pumps them up even more. USA must take that edge away. I think we can. We've been the team in the tourney so far. Time to play like it.

Should be a great third period. If we can stay on our skates and not lose our edge we may have a shot. Hopefully we get the next PP might decide the game.

We are due a PP chance. Team Canada has had four chances in a row. I'm glad it's 5 on 5 for gold. No gimmicks. Great game. Both teams. Love this tournament.

Agree on shootout. What a game!!!! Amazing the kid that scored the first goal for Canada on the best wrister of the tourney whiffs in the shootout. Feel bad for him. USA beat Russia twice and Canada in Canada. Twice. Great tourney. Great game. Great win. USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
