6-1 over the Finns. Looks like it will be a rematch vs Canada in the Gold medal game.

It's really not even about Hockey- 98% of us here could give a toss about it...except when beating Canada or the USSR.

Of course there is a deeper question than whether or not we will win; Can Canada's collective ego (small as it may be usually) withstand getting thrashed TWICE by us? At least when they go to get anti-depressants afterwards they will be cheaper than here.

Interesting that there's no criticism when the score is completely lopsided in the men's competition, but heaven on earth forbid it happen with the girls....

I never criticized the scores in the womens...even though I think that Canada piled it on as did the U.S in one of their games. 6- 1 is hardly in the same league as 18-2 or whatever.

Canada wins by the skin of their teeth. I feel pretty good about the U.S. chance now.

The Slovaks used their "rope a dope" style to keep the game close. The Slovaks will win bronze. Remember, when it counted against a "world power" like Russia, the true Canada came to play. The USA has to hope that Miller can steal the gold.

They unestimated the power of the slovaks - considered a much weaker team - well they gave them a really good scare and I hope they have learned from it. Canada men always do this - have a good lead then start "playing cute" and "be loosey goosey" as a commentator commented and sloppy and look what happens.

What exactly does that term mean - never heard it before, but the slovaks were certain able to frustrate the canadians as well as other teams I have to admit I was surprised when I heard that they beat the swedes....
