Does Housley get any credit for this?

I think I'm gonna turn in for some sleep after the second is over. Unless Gibson and Gilles forget how to play hockey I already know how this is going to end.

I'll watch the replay tomorrow. Thanks for coming out Slovakia

Yeah, really unfortunate for that kid and the team. Still think that play was clean though.

Would you rather get a nut shot or the minor spear that Jenner gave Kuznetsov? The answer is quite obvious

He does for the Vesey move for sure. Or at least he should as that's worked big time.

Not sure if he's been harping on them crashing the net but they've clearly done that much more in this game as well.

Slovakia are really playing terrible.

We will be measured against the Czechs/Swedes/Finns and then hopefully the Canadians/Russians.

Maybe its just me, but Ive had very little problem with his game and vision through the tournament. I mean he was one of the few playing (imo) against Canada connecting with passes and creating chances.

Also, Im not the only one who has hated Jones game all tournament am I? Seems to turn, or almost turn the puck over every time he touches it... I feel like it should be a drinking game...

The Slovak defence was decent enough last night against Germany, allowing only 18 shots against. Slovakia just isn't mentally present in this game against the US. I think they got overly exuberant after yesterday's comeback win. They must focus on the Latvia game now to remain in the elite for next year's WJC. The rest of the current game is meaningless. 2-8 halfway through, lol.

I have higher standards for him. He's a dominant junior aged player and hasn't shown it until today. Not that he didn't make some good plays in the previous games but he never controlled the play like he usually does for extended periods. He has an uncanny ability to read plays, find the zones, and use his patience to open up lanes.

Real good chance the USA is going to have the best goal differential coming into the next round if this keeps up.

Honestly, I thought the defence was crap even against Germany. Draisatl was running rings around them.

I can't do it. I'd love to watch Rakell, Karlsson, Wennberg, Wikstrand, Barkov, Armia, Ristolainen, Maata, and Teravainen but I'm exhausted.

Tomorrow is a day of inebriation and I can't go to a New Year's party sleep deprived. I might as well be going to a party hung over.
