CTV's coverage wasn't really pimping Crosby much at all during this game or even after it when he scored. This was more of a team result, not an individual player's success story.

I'm not really a frequent avatar changer so I'll likely keep this one or something else Canada related for awhile

I hope this game results in the appearance of angry pissed off Miller ready to stonewall the rest of the league this season.

I have no problem with your avatar but Vito's has something in it I hate immensely.

So to sum up the tourney for me:

I am emmensly proud to be an American hockey fan right now. We were not even expected to smell the podium let alone push Canada to OT in the gold medal game.

To see the pride and enthuesiasum (SP?) beaming from players and from the hockey loving population of the States was amazing. There was also a decent amount of people in the states that were turned onto hockey by these games.

To see our (Sabres and American) goalie be an absolute beast and be the best goalie in such an outstanding field is an amazing feeling.

To get to the final game and be so close to gold certainly stings some but I have nothing but pride and respect for what our team did in the tourney.

I didn't think I'd get emotionally invested in these Olympics but this is pretty heartbreaking.

Makes me really hope that Miller somehow gets the start on Tuesday.

Yeah. Pretty interesting how it came down to the exact same three in the exact same spots.

Although, I was disappointed that the Finns won the bronze on the mens side. Slovakia really deserved a medal.

I'm sad that my 3rd line center is Kennedy again instead of Backes

Could not have scripted this any better for this Canadian Sabres fan.

Miller gets MVP. Awesome.

Canada wins without embarrassing Miller. Even Better.

Icing on the cake for this Bluenoser? Crosby gets his Henderson goal.

Just got back from Yonge and Dundas. Toronto is celebrating this like a SC win, who said Burke and Wilson couldn't get it done?

Incredible day, incredible night. Canada has been one helluva good time tonight.

I don't think I have ever seen so much patriotism and hockey pride than today. It's amazing really.

I don't mean to start anything here, its just been awesome.

This was somewhat tough to watch for a Sabres fan living in Canada being neither canadian or u.s. american.

Every time Miller got scored on I cringed.
Although overall I thought it would be good if Canada wins.

Then Crosby made his Hollywood made in Canada goal.
BIG Meh.

I can already see the Versus announcers talking about Crosby for 60 minutes in a Penguins game and 40 minutes in a non Penguins game. I guess even the closed captioning during commercial breaks in Penguins games will be Crosby related...

Otherwise hats off to Ryan Miller and the rest of the US team who played a tremendous tournament and got really close to win against a team who - on paper - has quite a lot more talent.

I'm saying that to whoever made that abomination.

I actually used to like the movie 300 too. It's ruined for me now.
