    It's still the 21st here on the West Coast, but everywhere else (including in Korea) it's the 22nd.

    38 years to the day after USA 4 - USSR 3.

    The commentators were doing Yeoman’s (sp?) work in trying to jinx the first team to win 5 gold in Hockey in a row by referencing it early and often.

    She returned the goalie to the soil from whence she came; her constituent atoms are currently hovering above the ice in a miasma. Damn.

    It is weird to be receiving a medal right after losing a game. Imagine that in other sports. Like the losing team in the Super Bowl gets the Runner-up Lombardi and have to stay on the field for the trophy presentation.

    I missed it, were there any illegal hit penalties awarded during the medal ceremony?

    As a Canadian disappointed but it was a great game. Congrats to the U.S. That being said I have to say the U.S. coach outsmarted Canada's especially in the OT. The Canadian coach used only 5 D and 7 forwards in the OT and half way through that OT you could see their legs were gone. They ie the Canadians were fortunate to get it to a shootout. They really didn't pose much of a threat until the final 2 min on the PP. Full credit to Lamoureux for scoring a great goal to win the Gold.
    P.S. The line change that led to the tying goal was just brutal

    Did anyone hear an adequate explanation as to why that Poulin hit did bit meet the criteria for some sort of penalty? Or if it did and the refs said they missed seeing it?

    Good point. Guess it could be a little more common in individual sports. I was just thinking more of the team events here in the U.S. I think I'd want to be off the playing surface pretty quickly and not have to hang out and watch the winning team celebrate.

    The only explanation from their point of view would be that it was an aaccidental collision.

    Canada is having a really outstanding games, but I wonder what the mood is with the curling and women’s hockey losses? Win the men’s hockey gold and I imagine everyone will view it as a success.

    The curling has obviously been a disappointment with neither the men's or women's team performing like most Canadians expected. The women's hockey not so much as those two teams have been so competitive with each other. You never know the outcome so kudos to the U.S. in this one. Actually there is little talk in my neck of the woods about the men's tournament as most fans lament the NHL not being involved. Myself I am following them closely but I am an exception around my part of Nova Scotia. The time slots of the hockey are also not conducive to the average fan watching. I was surprised how many did not watch the women's game at our local school (ie teachers) but then again it didn't end until 3:30am here.

    That game last night was one of the most exciting sporting events I've watched in a while, Super Bowl included. Well played, edge of the seat action.

    I had never really paid much attention to women's hockey. Last night changed that for me.

    It looks like she beat her 3x in one play. First to the left, then 5 hole, then the goal. I think she could have scored in all 3 places

    She drops her with that first pump fake and then can do what she wants. Just a filthy, filthy series of moves against a top 3(?) goaltender in the world. Great tournament for the twins.

    More credit to Amanda Kessel as well. if she hadn't scored to tie up the shootout and things remained the same, Canada would be taking home the Gold.

    Was just thinking this earlier. She doesn't get the same glory (and her goal wasn't as fancy), but the sixth shot doesn't happen without her.

    Because she was a complete non-factor all tournament? I’ll be stunned if it doesn’t come out both her and Knight we’re carrying injuries...probably the two most talented US players and they didn’t do squat for two weeks.

    I went to bed after the 20 min overtime. No major Championship should end in a shootout.

    CBC Crew, including Don Cherry, were pretty much total unmitigated homers...as the government owned broadcaster should be during the Olympics.

    (Except that Cassie Campbell begrudgingly acknowledged that most of the called penalties were good calls...her homerism came more in the form of agreement on the subject of non-calls against the Americans)

    They said it was possible she could have been ejected. They thought it was worse than other penalties. They were also critical that the Canadian coach shortened her bench too much and gassed the team in over time. Also critical that they put a player out for the PP in over time that had sat since the 2nd period. Basic message before and after the shootout was that they hated shootouts, and that the USa had dominated the OT period.

    The Czechs were hanging in there, but the roof just caved in. 2 goals on 20 seconds, plus they lost their timeout with a failed challenge.

    Can’t believe they didn’t find the net on that PP. Need to cash in on this one.

    Kovalchuk was even nice enough to give them another one by slashing someone 2 seconds after he came out of the box, but the Russians kill off another one.

    And now 3-0...I suppose you don't often get to call a German sports team a Cinderella story, but this team comes entirely from the DEL, which is maybe the sixth or seventh best league in Europe, and six of the players in the squad come from Adler (Eagles) Mannheim, which is the ninth-best team in the league. This truly is something.

    I'm not sure David Wolf should be back on the ice after that hit by Brule in the second - no concussion protocol in the Olympics, I fear.

    That should have at least been matching for embellishment. He was going down before he was close to the guy who tripped him then got lucky that his flop somehow put the stick between his legs
