@NBCSportsPR: You can now view "Lokomotiv", our doc highlighting the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team, in its entirety here: http://t.co/T1nO978G0T

Apparently NBC did a piece on lokomotiv for the Olympic show. Get your hankies out...

Maybe this is "unpatriotic" of me being American, but I was kinda pulling for Sweden to win the gold since all the Wings were named (in addition to how much I like how the Swedes run their country, I would definitely move there if I ever become willing to learn another language!).
 
Don't get me wrong, I was still hoping for the US to pull it off, but I'm not really a "big" fan of any of the US players. I guess I'm just more emotionally attached to the Swedish Wings players than I am to invisible arbitrary lines drawn on the globe.


You put my exact feelings into words. Guld för Sverige!

Refs got to job the women's gold medal game. It's only fair that they get the same opportunity on the men's side.

 

Pretty sure the ref in the womens final was British....they were making quite a big deal about it on the BBC commentary.

 

Anyway, my loyalty is pretty obvious for todays game

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Same here. If only to end the discussion if Kronnwall / Ericsson is a legit #1 D-pairing.

Terrible. That means sweden are without their three most constructive and best players/centers.
Sedin, zetterberg, backstrom.

Bergeron best CAN player so far. Toews finally scores a goal.
