To put it into perspective. If we dominated the Americans like this it wouldn't have been really surprising given their lineup and lack of talent. But against the Russians?? Its shocking really.

I hope Canada plays the Swedes Friday night, essentially that is the Gold Medal Game.

Then hope the USA advances to the Gold against us so we get as easier opponent. Lighting can not strike twice in the same place

There's a reason this win means so much to Canadians - Russia is such an accomplished and skilled adversary that beating you means we really accomplished something.

I am grateful that our two great hockey nations will almost certainly butt heads again in 4 years - and then it will be on YOUR home turf!

Sochi 2014!

Best of luck to Russia in 2014.

They are a very talented group, but Canadian were more prepared for them.

Go Canada Go.

Was a good game to watch, as the US game really knocked us down a notch.

p.s lets not turn this into a US vs Canada thread again...please

It is just the continuing American fan melt down. Annoying, yet entertaining.

My goodness you guys are feeling quite full of yourselves.

The way to stay in a game with Canada (not necessarily beat them) is to have good goaltending and battle/heart in your lineup.

The Swiss and the USA had both and we saw how close those games were. The Russians had no heart and the German's had no goaltending.



But a great win all the same.

I didn't come in here to pick a fight, but why are you guys hiding in a thread where Russians are congratulating Canadians, and using it to bash Team USA????

Only in a sense that they brought 7 d, not 8. They took all NHL d-men available (sans Kulikov). Frolov and Kovalev were terrible at the time of the selection. But I doubt it would have made a difference. With forwards not backchecking and losing all battles, nothing could have helped.

Leave it to the American and Canadian fans to drive this thread right to the *******.

Clearly the only class on this board is from Russian fans.

Where is all the Team USA bashing that you are referring to? I only see one post saying that beating the US soundedly might not have been as big of a shock than beating Russia. So...where is this bashing?
