Thanks Mike, I don't think the US played their best today, but Canada's defense was very good (Claude-like), and Price and Quick were very sharp.

Once again Kessel is shown that having the most points means JACK $$$HIT in this game, he nor his fans will never learn. Canada put on a hockey clinic right there, 60 minutes of solid effort, if not for Quick it would have been sooooo bad.

Sweden has a good chance provided they get solid goaltending. USA couldn't pass for ****. Sweden will do better.

The Canadians played a layered defense ( Claude)

The US played stretch passes and shoot from 40feet ( Dan B)

The ONLY good news I take away is if the Bs meet the Penguins the Bs have a huge advantage behind the bench ( again)

And I'd hate to face Quick in the playoffs

I bet Yandle and Ryan were both rooting for the US to lose this whole time out of spite. Human nature says most likely.

That was one of the most boring game I ever sat threw

Good luck in the Gold medal game Canada . Looks like Henrik Lundqvist took his over sized goalie gear with him.

The story of the tournament always should have been Canada's absurdly good defense so far, US's supposedly lethal offense could only get a couple by Russia's weak defense. Bergeron is a ridiculously good hockey player.

Really disappointing turn of events the past 24 hours. US played their worst game at the most inopportune time. Sounded like they never had a chance today. Congrats Canada.

Bylsma is notorious for being outfoxed by defensive-minded coaches; I thought he was doing a good job in the prior games however. Laviolette is notorious for not making timely in-game adjustments. Not enough jam.

Congrats Canada/Bergy/Clode.

What a magnificent result!

Give team US of A credit, they tried but it was just not meant to be.

It looked a lot like what we did to Pitt in last year's ECF.

So unbelievably solid and trustworthy to bring "it" every shift. My already creepy man crush on him grows even creepier

The term you're looking for is "TEAM".

Tell that to any Leafs fan and they say, but he's in the top 10...

Noting in hockey more exciting than watching Ryan McDonagh, Brooks Orpik or Paul Martin start the transition.

Good thing they didn't bring JJ either. It isn't like he's exceptionally talented offensively.

I'm curious if McDonagh had more shots on Quick or the rest of the other netminders combined this Olympics.

It kind of sucks that we'll never have played Sweden but have no chance at a silver medal because of the way the tournament is structured.

Everything pens fans say about Bylsma's shortcomings seemed to come to fruition today.

Not likely, but either way, a Bruin will be coming home with a Gold Medal!
