Yes, that was good zoney.

Not good enough to make me use the exclamation mark, but it's on track.

3-1 after two, now. Fleury just made a save that would make Hasek in his prime look bad. It looked as though the US player missed a wide open net, with Fleury down and out. On replay, however, it shows Fleury stretched across with ridiculous flexibility to stop it with his glove. Unbelievable.

Should be a great 3rd period!

Yes, the break you're speaking of was when Fleury cleared the puck... only problem was, it hit a Canadian player who was in between the faceoff circle and the top of the goal crease, and somehow bounced all the way back into the net, with Fleury out of position due to the clearing attempt. It has to be one of the weirdest goals I've ever seen, and it ended up being the winner for the US. That said, Canada had the chance to go up 4-1 at the beginning of the 3rd period and missed several other great chances, too... so maybe it was meant to be this way. Both teams gave it their all, and it was a great game. Congrats to the US.

Congratulations Team USA...

Diligence paid off in the third. I was impressed with the patience of this year's team, and their dedication to a team system. Hopefully the victory won't be in vain, and American sports channels pick up this awesome tournament in the near future. If you enjoyed olympic hockey, this is the next best thing.

Good things about the tournament:

- tag-up offsides... limits the whistles, and doesn't interfere with the tempo of the game. That is a great rule implementation.

- north american dominance... the two systems most successful, focusing on scoring, physical presence, and to a certain degree team depth. Hopefully in the future the American team can afford to role 4 lines.

Bad things about the tournament:

- Marc André Fleury's paddle... his goal stick caused massive problems in the third period for Canada, and he will have to improve his skills in visual adjustment and puck communication with his defenseman. If not, he will only be a successful goalie on a Roy-style team. Keep the paddle down Marc! Two goals buddy, two goals.

- European Impotence... awful showing for the eastern teams. There's some major flaws with the junior development programs in Russia and the Czech Republic.

- Austria and Ukraine... nice try guys. But you've been relegated. Bring on Belarus and Germany for next year.

- Canadian impatience... bad luck happens sometimes, but I hope my fellow countrymen will embrace the fact that the team played excellent and just came up short of expectation. Lest we forget that the Americans were a heavy favorite entering, and didn't disappoint.

Congratulations for a great effort from both teams... and a special shoutout to my defected cousin Brady Murray. Keeping the Gold Murray tradition.

It was a great effort, but don't overexaggerate. The puck just as easily could have deflected in... Fleury struggled heartily today. Nerves were showing on both goalies.

Fuck Tomas Andersson. Get your damn skate out of the way you stupid jackass. You were the difference in the whole tournament. Looks like your goal of fucking over Canada was successful after all...God knows you've been screwing us all tournament.

Anyone who says that the US deserved to win that game doesn't know what they're talking about. They got 2 extremely lucky goals, one of the referee's skate, and one off a lucky bounce. The USA did NOT deserve to win this, Canada had a slight edge the whole game and the Americans got lucky, and anybody who says the Americans deserved to win that has either never played a second of hockey in their lives, or don't know what they're talking about, or both.

Fuck I am angry right now.

Haha.

Anyone that blames the referee's skate... instead of Fleury's complete ineptitude to behind the net traffic doesn't know what they're talking about.

It's nice to see you're such a class act in defeat though.



Bounces happen, but don't let your emotions use them as scapegoats. Canada scored two goals after that... are you sure you watched the game?
