Sadly, no.

You played the Finns.

If memory serves, by the time Canada reached the quarter finals in '02, they had gotten their **** together after a shaky start. The 2-1 score in the quarters flattered the Finns & it wouldn't have mattered if we had played Belarus or Sweden in the semis, the result would have been the same. I remember Herb Brooks even admitting that his beef with the medal round format boiled down to sour grapes.

The men should have used the ref from the Woman's gold medal game.
Canada wouldn't have gotten away with so many dirty tactics.

"Dreams" are sometimes delusions.
