great spectacle for the game, but the bottom line is we dropped below the leafs in the standings and missing the playoffs is starting to look a reality more so now. i just hope we can get a settled consistant side for the final 20 games.
Please... We'll be 2nd or 3rd in the division by season's end.
I think Shanny was motioning towards him too like really Steve? You sure? I'm not surprised, Steves modest to a fault sometimes but that's why we love him.
It;s understandable though. You could see him walking/skating today and you can tell his leg bothering him. It was amazing to see him in red and white again, and I will never fault him for not taking a go in the shootout. We have Homer for that anyway
What penalties did you have a problem with? I believe it was an obvious trip and 2 high sticks. They had to be called. Canada carried the play for over half the game. Power plays usually follow when that happens. US had the advantage in power plays earlier in the game while they were carrying the play
Exactly. USA controlled the game early, they got the calls. Canada started to take over, they got the calls. Just the way hockey works. You rarely ever see the team controlling play take a penalty. I thought that was a well officiated game really. None of the penalties called had me rolling my eyes. They were all legit calls.
Really hoping Canada and USA meet for the gold medal game. Be a lot of fun to watch.
