U.S.A vs Canada Predictions!

I think Canada has been taking it easy all Olympics and not giving there full effort. I think they turn it on against the US and know they have to give it everything they have to beat us. 3-2 Canada wins in OT. How do you guys think the game is going to play out?

If USA loses I'm just going to blame Quick playing over Miller and be satisfied with that.

Edit: Forgot to add poll, please add mods. Thanks!

Canada will win.

The USA should play trap, and collapse in front of the net, but they won't. They'll try to beat them playing Canada's game. The Russians dominated the USA with 5 on 5 possession, and there's no reason to expect differently in this game.

I am not going to predict the score but I will predict one thing, I will not be watching...

First, Canada looks awful.
Second, the hockey is awful.
Third, I am now sure the U.S. will win.


Why would I torture myself by watching this garbage???

So, I am going to enjoy a long walk by the lake (it is actually suppose to rain) and not give the game a thought.

As the biggest Canadian homer there is, congrats to the U.S. in advance. Not only do I believe you will win, I believe you deserve to win.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say a North American team will be victorious.

Canada...The offense really stepped up today and need to do the same on Friday.
USA hasn't played a team yet that has had any defense...Russia included.

Might be stating the obvious, but to me it depends on whether or not this is the game where Canada finally breaks the scoring drought. If it is, Canada wins. If it isn't, US wins.

2002, Salt Lake City. The ice was closer to Olympic sized than NHL sized.

Should be a great game, the Americans have the advantage in speed and maybe goaltending(Both Quick and Price are great but Quick has won in more big games)...I see Canada's offence finally waking up but the USA seem to be able to score more on their chances, especially in this tournament so far.
I predict a 5-4 US win.

4-1 Canada

3 point night for Crosby. Kessel looks like the best player on the ice. American defense looks poor.

I'm hoping it will be a game for the ages with the refs letting them play and not playing a major role in the outcome. For the love of our sport, I hope it's intense, fast and an awesome show that will help grow the game. I want the USA to win, but I really just want a great game for hockey fans and non hockey fans to see

On paper Canada should win.

On paper Canada should have blown Latvia out of the water.

I have no idea. I suspect the US won't play the same "park the bus" style that Latvia or Norway used to frustrate Canada, which will work to Canada's advantage.
