the better team won without question.... we held 75% of the play, and the US had no answer for our cycle game.... the US hadn't seen a defence like canada's before either, too big and too fast... anytime the US players were streaking up the wing, the canadian defenders were able to close the gap, whereas other countries defence simply couldn't skate with the US wingers
Alright! Let's go for Gold! Blow out for Canada 8-0!!!! (Doubt it but weirder things have happened). Actually I would laugh so hard if Lundqvist lets in a Tommy Salo goal with 20 seconds left to let Canada win by 1 goal. THAT'S my real prediction!
See that's how you play a puck support game. Hope Eakins was watching.
The big red and white machine.
Quite amazing puck support and transition game considering this isn't really a team. Really did a good job and everybody playing their part in a support role. Crosby on down as roll players and the only thing that matters is winning. Would've been nice to rub it in but 1 is all you need.

Yeah like I noted after the Latvia game the Canadian D and team play has been pretty good. Not giving teams much of anything. Weren't going to give the US much either and tbh I wasn't even worried. Canada dominated this game and dictated the way it was played from the opening. Quick kept his club in it.
