Are y'all going to cheer for your North American neighbours to win gold, or are you still butt hurt over the loss to us?

 

I hated the way the Russians cheered, but a stick to the face is a terrible response -  it makes Team USA look really bad.

I think he deserved the stick to his face, if for no other reason for being stupid enough to skate too close to the bench. The comment that it was not a taunt is BS. There was a pretty obvious photograph of the incident where he stares right at the bench.

I think he deserved a stick to the face too, it's not like he got hurt and he needed some punishment for that dumbass stunt.

Mantha was interviewed about it and said something like he came in and just waited for the goalie to make the first move then deked. Made it look easy on a very good Swiss goalie. That's some instincts you can't teach. He reminds me of Rick Nash a little bit. What I love about him is he doesn't force anything or hold on to the puck too long

I don't think you would be even posting this if it were the other way around would you?

Horrible start for Sweden, they look nervous out there. Hopefully they can step it up a few notches...

Wouldn't the Russians have taunted the bench, USA wouldn't have reacted like that. Do I agree with it? No, but I understand it and it's not the first time team Russia hasn't shown any class in this tournament. I probably would have thrown a water bottle or spit at them.

 

btw. Go Sweden Go cheering hard for a Sweden - Canada final the crowd would be amazing.

I really hope it's Sweden vs Canada for the gold.  I really like that Elias Lindholm kid on Sweden.  Carolina needs more kids like him on that scrambled egg roster.  I would not be ok with Canada losing to Russia in a gold medal scenario, but Sweden wouldn't be too hard to handle should Canada take silver.  Canada is also an underdog if they play Sweden which may be a good thing to help them start on time.  Finland is kinda junk this year and they're lucky to be in the game today.  Canada better hand them a convincing loss.


Horrible start for Sweden, they look nervous out there. Hopefully they can step it up a few notches...

Get out of the period with 0 goals against is a win for the period.  Settle down and drop the hammer in the 2nd.  5 on 3 coming up!

Lindholm with a beauty pass and a heavy shot by Forsberg.  I really wish Lindholm wasn't drafted yet so he could go to his rightful place on the Wings.

Zadorov looks like a left handed Tyler Myers that hasn't hit the "suck button" yet.

This is a pretty poorly played game so far, it looks tight and nervous. 

 

The Russians are playing a tight game too, they always have four guys back to defend so there are absolutely no turnovers.

 

Ugh what an incredibly unlucky 4minute penalty :(

Personally I'd love to see Myers in Red and White, just like Miller the guy is playing for an absolute atrocious team. Zadorov will always have the KHL option, if things aren't going his way very good player none the less
