The Canadians came out flat. I think credit goes to team USA big time though as they have looked great for the most part in the tournament. I was really expecting a much better game however. Good for USA hockey though. Hopefully this will improve the popularity here. It really is the best sport. I think if it were marketed better it could be close to as popular as NFL and NBA. Stupid ESPN doesnt give a **** about it now they dont own the rights.

agree.

I understand the time difference, but why the heck didnt NBC Sports televise this with all their major announcers they are currently paying that are under contract?

I mean come on, like they dont have room to air these games inbetween their boxing and fishing programs..

Because NHL network owned the rights before anyone really knew there was going to be a lockout.
