A little off topic, but it was pretty gross watching the Swedish fans heckle Staal when he was writhing in agony on the ice. Follow that with how awful the Euro fans have been after the win towards Canada and our fans, I'm pretty disappointed with how many have carried themselves. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
The celebrations after shootout wins in elimination scenarios always rub me the wrong way as well. We've benefited from it in the past (Eberle at the World Juniors) but that doesn't make it any better. Shootouts have no place in elimination games. Leave that **** in soccer.
