Just cause I've always loved the guy, I really really want Selanne to finish the hat trick.

You're forgiven because you're from Winnipeg and I'm sure he is special to the city.

His whining about refereeing vs the Wings and team Canada have soured me on him completely. Legend for sure, but he'll never be among my favorites.

Looks like the US lost their motivation.

That's what bums me out most: They quit.

What did I miss, where was Dustin Brown the 2nd half of the game? Did Bylsma basically go with two lines?

How did he go from TJ Sochi to TJ Nochie so fast?

Edit: Kane is an emotional weakling.

I hope tomorrow's gold medal game is a lot more evenly matched, If I'm waking up at 7 am for the game I want them to put on a good show. I'm Canadian so go Canada, but I'm also a wings fan so can't be upset if Sweden wins :)

they said on CBC that coverage starts at 6am. So I'll be getting up an hour earlier. Man, 6am is the usual time i go to bed on Sunday Mornings..might as well not sleep at all tonight.

Incoming lots of coffeeee :) :)

His only highlight.

I think the US were a lot better than they showed today, and I think Finland was underestimated from the beginning of the tournament.

They play excellent team defence and their offence is underrated as well, they transition to it quickly and when they get a lead they can expand it just as well as they can protect it.

In a 1 game elimination style tournament there is a group of 5 teams that should always be considered absolute gold medal contenders, and another 2 that aren't too far behind.

Should be an interesting game tomorrow, it won't have the emotional rivalry attached to it like both teams faced in their semi-final games, but with a gold medal on the line I don't think there will be any lack of motivation for either team. It also has 2 goalies that have had great tournaments facing off vs one another.

As a Canadian Wings fan I won't be upset regardless of the outcome
