I didn't see the first two periods, but the third is awesome! Were the first two this good?

How awesome would it be for Russia to beat Sweden after being down like that? And for the record, I want Russia to win because the Canadians are rooting for the Swedes because Russia beat Canada. How's that for spite? :cool:


I want the Swedes to win because Russia didn't start skating until the third... :angry:

I like how Russia is protecting their goalie now. Even if Makarov has no real threat, they're still clearing the crease. I wish our boys would do that for Jimmy.

You could see that coming as Sweden started pouring it on. I'm glad the game ended on an awesome play. Congrats to the Swedes.

Nothing to to with losing. Unwritten rule. If you are Canadian you do not hope for the US and you do not hope for Russia, if you can help it. It's that simple. lol

Congrats to Canada for getting a medal 14 years straight :clap: They made us proud.

Was so glad to see Sweden beat the Russians as was most of the croud. I was at the pub for the game and the whole pub was cheering once that goal got scored. Congrats for the first gold in 30 years!!

Till next year, great job Alberta hosting and passing the torch onto Russia now

I heard this Calgary columnist on Toronto radio last night and I couldn't help but dig up his article on Kusnetsov. I get the sense that he doesn't like the Russian player too much.....or Ovechkin and Semin for that matter.

I don't buy that. This has everything to do with losing. Not to mention, you guys hate Americans and we know it. I mean, I know ya'll are still mad about Russia winning last year, so that didn't help, but it comes back full circle to being all about losing.

Pretty much.

Canadians are upset because a 19 year old kid is excited that he scored goals against them in a big game? They were also upset that the Russians were celebrating during their 3 goal comeback in last year's Gold Medal game. :rolleyes: How dare they celebrate?

I'm just happy the other countries are getting better at this tournament. It's not just Canada winning every year now.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Four different countries have won gold in the last four years. Now that is diversity.

I love the WJHC, but until Canada get there heads out of there asses and start putting more talented kids who deserve to play on the ice, I don't mind seeing a hard working team like Sweden win. I love Roger Ronnberg, that's a hockey coach.

Oh and why are you surprised by the fans reactions? The games were played in Calgary and Edmonton afterall! :hehe: Oh and Eric Francis is actually a funny guy and a good radio host (listen to him every morning on the way to work) but he doesn't know s*** about hockey because, you guessed it, he's a Flames reporter (and closet fan :ph34r:)

But he's never played a game for the Wings and there is guarantee he ever will.
