I definitely liked that this was on TV, there was fan support, and the trending twitter thing is huge. Definitely spreads the word of the sport in the country and could have definitely grabbed some new fans with it being on TV.

I didn't get to watch the entire thing but hopefully the commentators were acting as advocates for the game in GB and had their sales pitch ready to try to get new fans on board.

I hate officiating in IIHF more often than not. So many soft penalties but they can easily be avoided as well. By the time I tuned in it looked like GB's legs tuned out.
