5 on 5 the Americans were much better - I wish it wasn't true. Canada better bring it in the 3rd.

3-2 for the bad guys...

Kessel is great. Hayley needs to retire.

U.S. was the better team and deserved the win. A shame.

Sochi is the ultimate prize. Better get better (5 on 5) and faster or we will lose there, too.

They have some quick players but they're quick to the puck so it makes them look all that quicker, our puck movement was atrocious especially in the second, third was neutral but Kessel had quite a game, an amazing player, this is a lesson for Sochi. We've lost the Worlds each time before an Olympic year and have come back stronger, and it will be no different this time. We'll get em' in Sochi!

Haley was injured by the way, nonetheless there are times where you still see her Hockey sense stick out, she'll be a force if she has the ability to stay healthy for Sochi.

Especially Amanda Kessel, she was flying out there, very entertaining player, surprising her numbers weren't higher considering she only had 2 goals the entire tourney, she'll be a force for the USA in Sochi.

Hayley's got back problems, just like Mario did at that age. I think she's 34 at least now.

I heard Russia won the bronze? they didn't televeise the game, but if so, good for them.

Breaking the form of USA/Canada are 1/2 and Sweden/Finland are 3/4

Team USA has been favorites for Women's Hockey every Olympics since 1998, yet they've only come out on top in that very first tournament. Anything can happen between these two teams, sets up a doozy for the February 20th, 2014!
