Me too.

Sorry to see that happen in what was otherwise a good game.
I agree, the 4 on 4 play in OT was noticeably tilted for Canada. The Canadian defense showed their depth and puck moving abilities. The US D got caught out of position and left Crosby all alone in front of the net. Great game though, much more even in terms of play than the first game. Canada didn't dominate the same way they did the first game even though they lost. A Golden goal for the gold medal to set the record for the most gold ever. That goal will be talked about for a long time.

Definitely agree, for 3 periods. But that is the kind of game you expect and want from those two rivals. Funny how times change. The big rivalry in Hockey has become North American instead of the old rivalry between Canada and the U.S.S.R. And I actually think the Canadians take this one more personally.

It just happens to be that the USA is both the Women and the Juniors top rival, and the USA got in the way to gold. I would rather lose to the USA than to Russia. Winning gold was great but DESTROYING the Russians was pretty sweet too.

It was certainly sweet when a bunch of U.S. College players beat the Russians in 1980. Love the rivalry now with the U.S. and Canada. Being connected to both places, it does cause me fits at times though.

Great game, great Olympics; with the exception of Celine Dion at the closing ceremony.

Chicago takes it the most personally, there's was a Blackhawk on each side!
