Thumbs up Anyone following the hockey ?

I have just seen the best open goal shot ever. What a great game, even though I was barracking for the men with the Maple Leaf the yanks were better on the day, well the goalie was.
That game should have been called Miller Time.

Hockey is a much better game when played on the larger Olympic sized rink.
Maybe the NHL should play with one less player.
Also the lack of commercial time-outs is nice.

You gotta give props to Miller... One hell of an effort... Same certainly can't be said of Brodeur.

I doubt you'll see much of him (brodeur) for the rest of the tourney.

I liked the way we played. Certainly better than the Sweden game. Team Canada always has a large target on their backs when we play international hockey. Opposing goalies always seem to stand on their heads against us.

Quite honestly... I think the extra game will be good for us, and the U.S. earned it.

Good game.

Indeed. A bunch of stars thrown together with little or no practise, the extra game should help get them on song. And the loss will erase any hubris.

Dave,
I would love to see it, what a hoot that would be. Maybe we could win by default, like the speed skating (last man standing)
At least we did good in the 2 man bobsledding

But I have to agree with smokinghot, the seppos did earn the win, from this end that last PP looked like a poor decision though.

(disclaimer, I haven't played for thirty years nor have I seen any ice in that time)

It was truly awesome to witness that moment. The look on his face was priceless.

Being a hardcore Montreal (Patrick Roy) fan, I'm forced to blame Brodeur for that loss . Although the U.S. squad did do well, it was without a doubt Miller's play that won them that game. There were only few small handfuls of minutes that the U.S. truly out played the Canucks.

If Miller continues that level of play. The U.S. will get the gold with ease. I doubt they'll get a tougher game than the one our offence provided the other night.
