    Am I the only Yank who cares? I have figured out the difference between US and Canadian hockey finally. Down by 3, with 2:00 left, and the US leaves goalie in, WITH A 5 ON 3 ALREADY! Hartsburg (Or any Canadian coach) would have pulled his goalie, knowing the pressure and criticism that would have been on him, playing for national pride and not going balls to the wall.
    Me and the other American who care (Some guy in Ely MN) are pissed. Whe could have done better. But when its 20 teenagers against an entire nation, what can you do?

    I was watching that game and couldn't figure it out. Who cares if you lose by 3 or 4? You still lose. At that point, you have to pull the goalie.

    I was cheering for Canada, so I was happy to see that the US coach apparently got drunk before the third period...

    If the Swedes could stay out of the box, they could make a game out of this...
    2-0, Canada.

    I didnt get it either. You are playing for pride at that point, you have to pull the goalie. They went out meekly, with no pride or passion whatsoever.
    I hope the WJC will replace the Olympics as the premier showcase for young hockey talent. The Olympics are so over...

    I'm hoping for a little more fight in the third period. Let's hope the Swede's stay out of the box, I would rather see a hard fought battle then a blow-out.

    Go Canada!

    I think it might be just you, or I'm not paying enough attention to the game.

    Thanks for the play-by-play monkeys. I will have a little more substance to throw my father's way on the weekly phonecall. I might even be able to trick him into thinking I watched the game.
