Not that anyone who reads this blog needs a reminder, but the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" Americans did not win the gold medal by defeating the Russians. That victory merely got them to the gold medal game. The team they defeated? Today's opponent from Finland. Here's a reminder...
...Finland is going to play a pressure free game as a medal was not a given for them coming in. The Americans are going to have to regroup real quick after yesterday's excruciating loss if they want to save face with a bronze medal.
...today will also be Teemu Selanne's final game as a member of Team Finland, so don't think his teammates aren't going to have a little extra juice trying to make sure he goes out with a medal.
USA hockey took a big step backward. What a disgrace. These guys didn't bother to show up today. After a relatively easy time in the early rounds they seemed to just not want it enough. No fight at all vs Canada and an absolute turd laid on the ice vs. Finland. Isn't it better to fight for a bronze then to not medal at all? Embarrassing. Congrats Finland. Congrats Teamu. Go Hank - win the gold and come home and smack Callahan in the face with it everyday he holds out for more money. Can't wait for NHL action to start up again to get rid of the memory of this USA team performance.
is that angry enough?
Wow. This was terrible. No emotion. Bring back the amateurs this was just plain old bullshit. The only one who cared was Quick. Kane was terrible. After the loss yesterday it was like they did not even care today. Sad.
My one question would be: What did you really expect with Bylsma and Laviolette behind the bench? I mean Bylsma is an awful coach that has the most talented team and still can't put it together when it matters.
Cant wait til our first Rangers game back... just in time for Kane to put a hat trick up against us :(
Callahan is 100 percent right in asking for more money than Brown... he is three times the player Brown is.
Didn't Del Zotto strated to play horribly after when his Grandma died ?
Looks like same thing is happening to Kane, his grandfather died recently :(
Wonder if Jeremy Roenick is going to give Team USA players tips on how to properly trash a hotel room after this one.
Who do you think should have been coach?
just in time to play us...
@AnnoyingJoe Don't forget about the 2018 Canadian team's best D-man...Dylan McIlrath!
@BrendyJohnson More like the Who's from Whoville.
@KreiderisTheChosenOne Brown is useless. He has a Knee fetish.
@KreiderisTheChosenOne Not when you're talking about ZUCCCCCC!!!!
@AnnoyingJoe He will do it this time!
@KreiderisTheChosenOne Yeah, we could of used Krieder :(
God I hate Olli Jokinen
