Again, fans in Canada can watch the game on the TSN feed, and international fans can get the game on RDS.

US-Canada, so far mid 3rd period, 1-0 (Chorney) off of Staal's foot and in.

Staal....Pyatt....Cliche....TO THE GOLD MEDAL GAME!


Staal was amazing again today. He just makes everything look so easy with his stick and always being in perfect position doesn't hurt

Pyatt was solid today, not as good as the first game but none of the forwards for Canada stood out today.

Cliche was moved to the 3rd line and had a lot of ice time. He looks very solid as well, very good defensively and the guys got a set of jets.

Cliche showed a bit of flair in the dying seconds of OT, had he only shot the puck!

Great game, but the use of the shootout stinks.

Yeah, I'm a fan of the shootout during regular season, but playoffs or tournament play should be OT until someone scores.

I didn't like Staal that much this game. He looked slow and was caught standing still a few times. Maybe he was just conserving energy? Anyone know what his ice time was tonight.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I do not think Staal is NHL ready.

Eh, he wasn't getting beat to the inside or outside so he couldn't have been going that slow...the bigger ice surface though IMO makes everyone look slow at times.

He used his speed though when he caught up to Okposo from behind, reached around him and poked the puck away...that was a great play..and that was at the end of a long shift for Staal (It might have been the end of a shift for Okposo also).

Hes not a speed demon by any means, but he'll make it in the NHL.

Like you I don't think Staal is NHL ready either. Hopefully his Sudbury team doesn't make the playoffs so staal can jump onto the AHL team in mid march and played another dozen or so games with them.

Just compared with guys liked Letang, Russell, and Bourdon, Staal looked sluggish to me. I really think he might've just been conserving energy for long shifts. Pronger always gives me the same impression, so it may not be a bad thing afterall.

Sounds like the tall players skating throws you for a loop.

I saw nothing wrong, seemed to play a solid defensive game today.

Staal looked good. Only a few players look fast on such open ice. He's not ready for the NHL but he's a very good player and will be in the NHL.

Agreed that the shootout is not the way to end it, but boy was that exciting.

Staal was great, I thought. Although I only woke up in time for the third period and beyond.

He's just so heady with the puck and nearly impossible to out-position. One particular point he was racing behind the goal to get the puck in the corner and just flattened an American in the process (a good battle, the lesser man falling), to which PM made the comment "ugh...just erased."

The entire game I couldn't help but think to myself, jeez I want this kid to be in a Rangers uniform. Kids progress quick, and he may just surprise some people in camp next year. If, however, he's sent to Hartford, that will not upset me, either.

It's weird, BigE...

you wonder what kind of season Staal would have in juniors again - listening to the guys talk about Jack Johnson recently, they cite him as being bored. He's ready to go now ad has hit that point where he's just not getting better due to the competition. I worried about that with Staal, and actually wanted to see him play a bit more to see if he improves. You neved know what 3-4 NHL games could've done to the kid (doubt it would've hurt). But I also thought he looked better last season (OK, it was one rough game last season) than this season; maybe it was expectations on my part, but nonetheless, I wanted to see him more to see if he improves.

I watched for Van Riemsdyk but did not see him. What's the scoop on him? A shortened bench late in the game or injury or scratch?

As I said I missed the first two periods.

He hasnt been getting regular shifts and its a shame. I think because Kane had been showing him up they were holding him to that type of standard. Do not worry though because this is quite similar to the situation J.Toews was in last year where he was underwhelming at the WJC the same age and was still drafted 3rd. There is a lot more time to go, and as we saw in the shootoutToews has developed quite well since last year.

Anisimov's goal can be seen here after 01:03 or something. Great goal from a good looking kid, we defenitly got "1st round" materia with that pick...
