Great effort by the USA. They have been a juggernaut in the last 3 games. Glad I stayed up to watch.

Pumped about this win but the work is not done yet. As much as I'd like to rub in the Canadian's faces I won't because they're staying classy. That was a great game to watch and I hope I'm not too excited to fall asleep. Good night from 'Murica!

Players like Cousins, Griffith etc sit at home watching the failure that is JC Lipon. Spott is horrifying.

Canadians are living in the past. They no longer are the best hockey country in the world, it is something they are going to have to learn to live with. In before someone brings up the olympics from 3 years ago.

So who are the Canadian fans rooting for to win it all? US, Russia, or Sweden?

Absolutely useless, are you kidding me? I'm sure you're just angry and looking for scapegoat. His vision and skating ability are apparent.

This game was won by Gibson. Beast. Well done USA, you deserve it.

I was partially kidding yesterday when I mentioned it, but after 2 straight SF losses, and 4 years without gold, I think Hockey Canada will go into full-on summit mode.

I'll be shocked if the CHL teams aren't "lending" their players to Team Canada for a WJHC training-camp in late-November by 2015 at the latest.

The biggest difference in the game was Gibson made the key stops, Subban couldn't. In a one game elimination, came down to this.

Mccabe was good today, obvious choice. But unnoticed was the work of Tyler Biggs. Great PK, and played safe minutes. If US fans don't know why he was picked by Housley just check your PK stats. He and Troechek are the best PK players of the tourney.

He did not look good. But then again, there weren't very many Canadians who did (except for Binnington).

Geez. It's cool to win these tournaments but in the end, like the olympics, it's a one game thing. Anything can happen, Canada could roll the best roster for 20 years straight and still never win gold. Determining winners is why we have the Stanley Cup.

Average game for Canada and a great game by a hot USA team, recipe for disaster. Didn't think Subban was the difference in this game, Canada just didn't seem to want it today. Go USA!

I just can't believe that some people are still trying to blame Subban. He had no chance on the first 3 goals, and even the 4th was a perfect shot after the d-man was more useless than a cigar store indian. He played fine the entire tourney, the team in front of him was brutal.

Good game from the US though. They deserve it.
McNeil was actually a sub for Hudon (and a good one at that).

What makes me the most angry is that we couldn't lose with class (on ice)

Given how much ice time each was given, I dunno how people say they contributed the same amount offensively or single out Rielly for offensive play.

Agreed, like I said before there is no way in hell the U.S should have beaten us this badly with the players we have. We were totally unprepared.
