GREAT game so far!

 

Glad I chose to just stay home today and pick up a growler of brew to drink while watching this!

Anyone else in awe of the sheer skill possessed by these two teams? These are unquestionably the two best teams in this tournament

Canada is almost as good as USA.. almost
There is traitor among us. Someone check Mcdonaugh's birth certificate

 

For me its the speed they're playing at.  This is easily the fastest paced game I've seen so far.


"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

Agree and the Swedes are the best technical team in Sochi

Weak icing call set that up. Canada is largely controlling play, though.

Goes to show that stats aren't everything. Shots 28 to 22, scoring chances 15 to 14. No part of that tells the story of how the game has panned out so far, Canada in the USA zone for a significant length of time and controlling the game as a whole overall. It feels like Canada has doubled up on everything so far from the pace of things. 

 

3rd period on, come on boys get a goal here or it's a battle for bronze.

I have no idea how this game is 1-0. Take the gift and do something with it, USA.
