Team Canada vs. Team USA Open Thread

1642

CANADA WINS!

A dominant showing for a 1-0 scoreline, the only thing still missing from this total team performance by Team Canada was a little more finish, although Jonathan Quick was fantastic. The gold medal game goes Sunday morning at 7 a.m. EST vs. Alfredsson (BOO) and Team Sweden.

Hockey history in the making this afternoon in Sochi.

Go Canada Go (with strong performances from Kessel and JvR indivdually).

Pretty interesting graphic here:

Not that it means much in the context of one game. This is going to be something.

    Playing the Maple Leafs techno in pre-game right now in Sochi.  Thats for Phil and JVR.

  • Mind Bomb

    WendelGilmour  Go Canada

    And the Giants :)

  • Jantz

    LeafFan15I was in our school auditorium as a 7 yr old when Henderson scored his goal.

  • BBirde

    Silly Hughson acting like you can contain Kessel. No you can’t. You can only hope to slow him down.

  • LeafFan15

    TheCanucksnaphook  I’m shooting darts on Pacioretty’s picture. Thats for Phil and JVR 😉

  • WendelGilmour

    Mind Bomb WendelGilmour 
    LOL. At least there was an important game in the Meadowlands. In February 😉

  • Jantz

    Part of Price’s fan club for the next 2 1/2 hours. If he can match Quick……. we are moving on to play Sweden.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    I want to see Kessel score 2g and 1a.  That is all.

    The https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Sochi2014&src=hash roster freeze will lift late Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. ET. The https://twitter.com/search?q=%23NHL&src=hash trade market will officially open again at that point.

  • sniperstar

    That graphic is missing an all important stat. USA has 1 Phil more than us.

  • Shift_Disturber1

    Murph2417   They show what everyone ‘has’ done. Now let’s see what they ‘can’ do.

  • Jantz

    TheCanucksnaphook In a 6-3 loss……… i can live with that !

  • LeafFan15

    TheCanucksnaphook  Oh that has to be a primary assist on JVR. And if Canada still wins I’m fine with that.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Jantz Should be a fun game.

  • Anthony Petrielli

    Anyone doing anything fun to take in the game at work today?

  • Mcost61

    sniperstar I hope Weber does not hurt him, that is all. Go Canada

  • Komas Taberle

    TheCanucksnaphook  
    Miley Cirus rocking the Bolshoi, lol!

  • Belfour20

    I thought I would be conflicted today in who i’m cheering for, but fuck thaaaat! LETS FUCKING GO CANADA!!!!!!!

  • Jantz

    TheCanucksnaphook JantzIt won’t be the snoozefest that the earlier game today was.

  • Mcost61

    CanuckUKinToronto Price is in his glory, he has defenseman who actually play defense

  • loomx

    I hope Crosby knows that there’s a game today.

  • Belfour20

    loomx  Hes on the team? what number is he?

  • sniperstar

    Mcost61 He better not choose now to start blocking shots.

  • WendelGilmour

    Anthony Petrielli  
    Listening to the FAN this morning, several callers said their employers were showing the game in their video rooms. Irwin toys have all their employees the day off. I booked vacation.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Respect the Backes Line.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    I am looking forward to Parise, and Kane showing the fuck up.

  • LeafFan15

    Belfour20 loomx  81? Oh oops that’s Kessel on Team USA

  • Tim Horton

    TheCanucksnaphook  Look hard as hell to play against. Not the most offensive group though.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Tim Horton Brown has scored and so has Backes.  Not sure about Callahan.  They can burn you if they get a chance.
