Kesler was absurd today. Not just the EN at the end but he was fantastic all game. The best forward out there by far. And Ryan Miller is good.

If Ryan Miller keeps this play up this week, it'll take a little bit of the sting out of the fact that he has Gionta's Hobey Baker sitting in his trophy case. :chewbanka

Callahan and Drury are excellent killing a penalty.

A hot goalie can take you anywhere.

I'm still glad we avoided him in 2001 in Albany. UND took care of them for us.

Between the WJC and this game, there is now no justification for Canada to exist as a separate country. If they can't hold hockey over us we ought to annex the place tomorrow.

Canada has to win 4 in a row to get the gold.

They are still not out of it.

Miller just stoned them like Gary Cheevers, Ken Dryden, Billy Smith, etc.

The lack of an olympic ice surface could save them going forward as they have quite a few "power forward" players compared to the Parise/Kane types that usually thrive on the big sheet.


Those power forwards won the game tonight. Kane/Kessel looked overwhelmed in the first half of the game and then Kane came to life at the end while Kessel didn't even see the ice.

We need Sweden to win a non-blowout tonight. #2 seed means getting Russia in the quarterfinals.

How do you figure. Russia has 7 points and won their group, which means they'll get a bye too, no? The USA couldn't see them until there semis? USA will get the winner of the 8/9 or the 7/10 game, so I think it'll be someone like the Slovaks, if I'm not mistaken. Brackets are confusing.

Maybe NBC will decide MSNBC should be the channel to show Russia v. Canada in a quarterfinal elimination game on Wednesday.

What a win. :flagus :flagus :flagus :flagus :flagus :flagus :flagus

No question, 1-seed would be optimal. We can take teams like Slovakia and Czechs IMO, but if Sweden, Canada, and Russia all end up on the other side of the bracket, we'll be a big favorite from our side to make it to the finals.

In case anybody was at the hockey game today (probably 3 or 4 of us) and missed this monster hit followed by a goal.

UNBELIEVABLE

Hiller has been playing very well. US hasn't had many grade A opportunities but there is always a Malone type player in front.

Shots 32-8 US.

I don't like this.

The officials got it right, can you believe a 32-8 differential and no goal yet? They just have to break through in the 3rd...

But this game is scaring the hell out of me. Imagine if we beat Canada then turn around and lose to Switzerland.
