Do Not Disturb Canada

Canada does not wish to be disturbed for the next three hours. Canada versus the U.S.A. Olympic hockey game, That is all.

For those that don't follow the best team sport on earth, it's tied at 2-2.

Miller has kept the US in the game so far. Entertaining game!

I don't follow hockey, but of course have to watch this...

Couple of things I notice...the three stooges really shouldn't play hockey, brodeur has broken my heart with how crappy he is playing, and the US goalie...good job.

US is playing solid hockey, canada is...sucking...4 to 3 for the US...

The team isn't gelling for sure. Oh well, we get an extra game to practice with Germany, then Russia and on to GOLD!

Brodeur was stellar 5 or so years ago. I've seen him play twice this month and thought he was on the decline.

Okay, Canada's back on line. The wrong team won 5 to 3 but the last one doesn't count as it was an empty net. R.Miller (U.S.A. goalie) was hot,Brodeur was not.

We're holding onto a name...we are hanging onto tradition of greatness instead of using who has the potential to BE great.

The first two..maybe even the third, goals made me wanna vomit. What was it...2 goals in the first 4 or 5 shots...bleh...

They looked scary the last 4 minutes but played poor for most of the game.

Hardly.
The refs were real slow in the 3rd period to blow the whistle when Ryan Miller had the puck covered.Speared every time he covered the puck,no goalie interference called.

Meh. I wrestled with a live online feed for three hours that managed to drop before every single goal on either side. Would have minded less if Canada had scored more of those goals...

Incorrect.
The younger team seems to dominate hockey nowadays,where of course Chris Pronger (the big goon)is an exception to that age opinion.Canada played good,puck always around Miller,but youth had more legs at the end.
Was that empty netter depressing to you?How did he manage to reach out that far?

at least you kids got to watch; I'm in Sri Lanka where the newspaper's only coverage of the Olympics is a paragraph about Michael Phelps being inspired after his visit to Vancouver. I kid you not. The TV coverage is "okay" but you don't get everything, and it's only live coverage, so unless I want to stay up into the wee hours, I'm missing it. Case in point: I woke up just after Bode Miller's downhill run in the super-combined, and had to turn it off. Missed that, too....
