Russia win?

 

Are you asking if Russia won the other semi-final?  No, they lost in a SO.

If it makes the Canadians feel any better I put more emphasis on beating Team Canada than winning gold.  Gold against gold will just be the icing on the cake.  Bummed I didn't get to see this one play out live though.  Sochi is going to be brutal start times.

I watched both games.  Sweden started out red hot in the first period and then Russia came on especially in the 3rd.  The USA looks to be better than Sweden from what I can tell.  They activate their D much more and are a little faster skating wise.  Gibson gives the Americans an edge in net.  In 1 game winner take all though anything can happen.  I think Sweden has a solid team but they have alot of injuries on their defense.  They are missing 5 of their best dmen which means most of the players there now would not be on the team if healthy.  Full marks to the Swedes for getting this far with a depleted blueline.  I see the Americans winning the Gold Medal game 4-2.

Oh Canada
....

You can't make stupid mistakes (like cutting your best defenseman) and expect to win this thing.

Finally I get to watch this game.  Would be so much more exciting if I didn't know what happened, but I digress.

I'm going to throw something at the TV if the announcer doesn't figure out how to say Blake Pietila's name.  It is NOT Pee-etta-la.  It's Pah-TILL-uh.  Argh...driving me crazy!

Hardly an easy name to spell :-)

 

Well I did root for the Swiss and Fins just because I like the underdogs but Sweden USA should be a good one too. It is almost insane how much pressure these Canadian U20 has on their shoulders.

 

One thing is for sure if the USA are going to think it will be easy against Sweden they are in for a rough awakening.

No, it's not, actually.  That's the Americanized way of saying it.  His grandfather clarified the proper pronunciation, which the announcers are using.  They discussed it during one of the preliminary round games.

 

Edit-- WAY TO GO USA!!!!
