    Have to think 4 on 4 is going to be advantage Russia. Tougher to jam them all up.

    50/50

    Russian mistake for Germany win, or a touch of class by Russia for the Russia win.

    Do they go to a shootout after 20 minutes, or do they continue with 20 minute periods?

    Penalty on Germany. Probably not a good thing. 4 on 3 will be wide open.

    Congrats to the Russians for now having as many gold medals this Olympics as they do athletes busted for doping.

    Exactly. It's the whole joke about Michigan not caring about going 1-10 as long as the win was against Ohio State.

    This is the 4th different name they've competed under in the last 30 years. They're used to it.

    So the lady handing out 1/2 the medals is part of the German federation? She was hugging the Germans and shaking hands with the Russians.

    Given that the Russian government sponsored a state doping plan I guess it is fortunate for them that the punishment they received was as light as it was. That being said can't believe that the impossible almost happened. Under two minutes to play, the lead and a powerplay to boot. I thought we were going to see the biggest upset since 1980. Congrats to Germany, they were the story in hockey!

    Too bad, Russia was the better team, but Germany absolutely blew that game. wtf was Seidenberg doing on the dump in on the poweplay with over a minute to play. All it accomplished was to give Russia the puck, and the opportunity to pull the goalie. Just an absolutely epic brainfart

    That is *such* a great picture. When do you ever see the losing finalists in any sport celebrating like that, let alone players who lost a gut-punch game in overtime? In a nutshell, that shows just how much the Germans overachieved in this tournament.

    I'm just glad I got to chronicle part of their journey to the finals - I called three of their games, and two of their overtime wins (against Norway and Sweden), and they were probably my third favorite story of the Olympics, behind Ester Ledecka and John Shuster.

    Why punish innocent people like Yevgenia Medvedeva and others? The whole thing is a joke. The stuff the East Germans did in the 70's was so much worse that what Russia did.
