Let's make it even more clear. We'll say Canada made the finals by beating Denmark, Italy and China. The Russians beat Sweden, Czech and the US. Now it really doesn't matter what you think you may or may not remember, we are discussing the ratings after the result. Would this scenario make Canada the better team when they clearly were not?
the outcome is all that matters. as a caps fan i understand this well, especially after watching the caps dominate the habs in the playoffs but we lost because of halak and our "bad luck". its nice to outshoot and look better than your opponent but in the end goaltending, post hits, and flukes are a part of the game they shouldn't be ignored.
