Oh Canada....

Goodbye. At least the best WJC team ever assembled can play for bronze!

Poor sportsmanship on both sides, but Canadian fans should be particularly embarrassed.

Two things to consider:

1) This group beat Canada in Canada for Gold at U18's three years ago

2) They can't use either the "playing in Canada pressure" excuse or the "all our best are in the NHL" excuse.

On a fair and very level playing field, Canada was destroyed

Gaudreau was drafted before he got to BC.

Margin for the tournament thus far is 31-8. Pretty impressive. 5.17 GF/G and 1.33 against.

Sweden - USA for the gold. Should be a good one. USAs very solid D vs Swedens small speedy skilled fwds. Goaltender duel imo, slight edge to US in my opinion.

Just caught up on the DVR, what a great game. Despite what EJ and the play-by-play guy were saying on NHL Network towards the end of the game, I really DO think Gibson stole one there. He made four or five saves that he had no business making that really could have turned the game the other way for Canada.

I can't believe Gaudreau does what he does at only 150lbs. Kid is fearless.

Jake McCabe has all the tools to be a VERY good two-way defenseman in the NHL.

Thought that was Miller's best game today.

All in all, I can't believe that Canadian team isn't playing for gold or silver. Huge disappointment for Canada, IMHO.

The team stepped up big.

They were not good against Russia or Canada earlier in the tournament. They got lucky to have another shot at Canada, and they stepped up big time.

Hopefully the same team that showed up today shows up again in final.

That's deceiving though.

Look at the scores against the weak teams.

2-1 losses against Canada and Russia.

What a big game for them today. Sweden won't be a cake walk. Hopefully they show up big again.

Did NOT expect them to score like this.

Love watching Hockey Canada be embarrassed by USA Hockey.

It's somewhat deceiving, but not entirely. We blew out the Slovaks who hung around with Russia and Canada, and wiped the floor with a solid Czech squad. The Swedes are the only team that's yet to play a bad game.

Miller finished 75% in the dot, too.

Yeah, but his career is going to be at wing. Flexibility is nice, sure, but I'd rather he focus on other areas.

Easily Miller's best game.

No bad decisions either. He was just brilliant all around. Fantastic passes, amazing defensive hockey and he was an ace in the faceoff dot. I was very very impressed.

Really not a smart decision for the US to sit Galchenyuk though. Not sure what Housley was thinking with that decision, but luckily it didn't matter.

I really didn't think this team had the weapons to keep up offensively.

Really didn't think they'd beat Canada after losing to them earlier and Russia.

I love being surprised, though. And yes, McCabe really came through. I felt Miller (not because I'm a Rangers fan) deserved the C, but McCabe really came through.

Swedes are going to be really tough. If this game was an indication of the team's "metal" (John Carter reference), then that game is going to be exciting.
