Alright I'm back from the bar and ready to take it like a man. Congratulations Team Canada...you played the better game. Good tourney Team USA, it was fun. Now, I'm going to set it up for the Team Canada fans to spike.
Jesus Christ you guys. There's good natured ribbing (of which I am definitely a fan), and then there's Ryan/Getzlaf/Perry levels of whining diaper pooping and poor sportsmanship. This thread is s***ting all over that line. People I usually consider to be insightful and level-headed posters are losing the plot, and valuable contributors to this site are being called trolls. STOP THE MADNESS
Congrats to the Canada ladies, sucks that USA blew a lead about as well as the Wings can. Here's to hoping the men's game tomorrow is a good one!

I could care less about womens hockey, i'll keep my views on that to myself. But if ud been watching the OT, the officiating was easily the worst ive ever seen.
2 absolutely bogus calls in a row. A netfront battle for a loose puck called as a slash and an obvious penalty shot that was called a crosscheck.
Doesnt take away the gold though! Congrats ladies!
Hold a lead and you don't have to worry about that kind of stuff. This all reminds me of that time the Chicago Cubs blew a three run lead before Steve Bartman touched a foul ball and the Cubs ended up losing. If you don't blow leads, you don't have to worry about this stuff. Bartman was a scapegoat...so are the refs. Again, congrats Team Canada.

Canada is still trying to figure out line combinations that will work.
I don't understand why they haven't hired blue adams yet, seeing as how babs is a nit wick and all...
very excited for this game though, hope my fellow canadians beat the USA, but really i don't like very many players on either team, actually kinda rooting for team Zetterbeard, c'mon boys win it for your captains ailing back!
I don't know about you guys but I'm already done with this season. I'll watch as many games as I can but we aren't going anywhere this year. Zetterberg may need surgery, Datsyuk isn't 100% and Franzen could be done as well. Time to look forward to next season already.
In for a penny in for a pound. I'll be done with this season when lockers are being cleaned out.
