Not a chance in my mind. Last year's game was incredible, had a bit of everything.
Definitely looking forward to this one though.
It was a good game until the 3rd when the US was completely flat and tired from playing the night before....the tables a turned this year which will hopefully help the US out a bit being outmatched in skill..
Yeah I can't wait for the New Year's Eve game. Both teams SHOULD go 3-0 prior to this match and if they do it'll be a battle. Last year showed us just what John Tavares can do when he wants to win. And there was pure hate between both teams I loved it!
Lets hope the officiating is good that game. In the Canada-Latvia game, not like it mattered, but there was typical awful European refereeing a couple of times. You know how it is, a loud bodycheck is often a penalty.
It could.....the WJCs are a big thing in NA (well mostly Canada and those die heart USA fans)...this game is much bigger for me then any regular season, 2 point game so far for my Rangers.
I don't know, as there have been many NHL games that caught my excitement more than this upcoming match between the USA and Canada but perhaps that can be explained by the fact I'm not a fan of either team.
Montreal vs Boston on December 4th, 2009 (Montreal's 100th anniversary ceremony) is just one of many examples of a game with higher importance, importance, media coverage, and enthusiasm than USA vs CAN.
