Final Countdown is on. I like it.
Go USA BEAT CANADA Pt. 2 Hockey Open Game Thread
man, the studio coverage with mike milbury and JR has just been awful all tournament long. milbury is an idiot who fucked the islanders as GM and is basically a crappy, non-entertaining version of don cherry (w/o the suits). JR can barely go one sentence without misspeaking, and doesnt know what he's talking about half the time.
why can't they get some decent commentators in the studio? bring in mickey redmond, maybe brett hull.
I love the playing of "Final Countdown" over the PA. Nice touch.
Why do commentators and the media keep comparing this game the the Miracle? Nothing alike, other than the US is involved.
30 year anniversary. NBC hyped it going in and they have to remain 'on theme.'
This is a great story, but this isn't the Miracle on Ice team. Nothing is, and probably ever will be.
Sorry, the announcers are bugging me.
Canada looks slow and the fans in attendance are losing their shit. no more 'Louuuuuuuuu' after saves, crowd noise almost non-existent, etc.
when anything less than a gold medal is abject failure.
We're the same way when Olympic basketball is concerned.
Is it only one OT period then a shootout, or do they go OT periods until a score (like NHL playoffs)?
fuckin hell and it had to be crosby
Great game, shit.
The look on Ryan Miller's face said it all.
has to have that. played incredible all of the games but damn man.
Nothing soft there though, straight up 5 hole on the replay, beat Miller clean. Miller played it well.
I have to agree. Just a clutch play from Crosby.
Congrats on the big win, and have fun celebrating. You guys deserve it, but we'll be coming for you in 2014. :)
goddammit, now the media is gonna have an even larger boner for crosby. he's gonna get years of fellatio for this.
The Americans did their country proud.
Arrrrgh, anyone but Crosby!
pretty much the general consensus of everyone I know. Any one but that douche nozzle.
Did he just say that Ryan Miller will be the tournament MVP? Wow, that's surprising, although I don't have a problem with that.
no standout 20 pointer guys, etc.
You're right, I was just surprised that someone from the losing team would still be MVP, but there probably isn't someone obvious on the Canadian team, either.
He should be, he was the best player in the tourney--regardless of who won.
Miller played awesome.
NO MIRACLE TODAY, SORRY DUDES!!!!!!!!!!!
Clarkie from Canada comes back on MGoBlog AFTER Canada wins something, per usual.
Why did it have to be Crosby?
I wanted a shoot-out...
Never trust a Sparty.
was the reason we made the finals to begin with. I'll hate him again next week, but for now, I'm a big Ryan Miller fan.
Isn't "I'm a big Ryan Miller fan" going just a bit too far? Respect his play; enjoy watching him play, represents the USA well, etc.... is about as far as I can go when it comes to Sparty.
Had a lot of people over for that one so sorry I didn't get to enjoy the coverage on here (which would be way better than the NBC feed you all must have to watch). Anyway, it was a good game and Miller almost pulled it off for them. A lucky bounce on the end and nice finish in the 6 on 5. In the overtime it looked like Canada had most of the play and this surprised me a bit.
As an aside, I've been around the whole time. Some might find all the fuck Canada and fuck Crosby analysis offensive. I'll admit it does get old. Stay classy though.
Ah well, was a great game none the less. Congrats Canada, and thanks for hosting a great Winter Olympics.
Gosh I hate Cindy. He really didn't do a lot in the Olympics but will be forever remembered for this.
4 on 4 OT in the Olympics sucks by the way.
I agree. I didn't realize it was 4 on 4 at first, but when I realized it was I thought that it was a advatage for canada.
Well, what a game. I know it's four years away, but after that game, how can the NHL not let it's players go to Russia. Watching games on tape delay or on-line will still be worth it to see games like this.
Plus, even though Olympic hockey isn't like NHL hockey, there wasn't a better advertisement for hockey as a sport than this game today.
I would kick Crosby in the balls but that's making the assumtion that he has any.
Fucking fuck Sydney Crosby in his stupid fucking fuck of a face.
Reminds me of the skinny dude in "O Brother, Where Art Thou".
Nothing pleases me more than seeing Crosby's face EVERY 10 SECONDS after a heart-breaking loss.
Ugh, Shit balls, Fuck. Why did it have to be Crosby? Anyone but Crosby. Dammit!
Not the outcome I'd hoped for, but it was a real good game. USA battled back from a deficit to get to OT.
I hadn't really noticed, but we have a really large number of Ryans on the U.S. team.
Classy by the fans with the cheers for Ryan Miller.
Not really, Canadians always give credit to the other team's goalie whenever their team doesn't dominate. I've watched HNIC on CBC for many years and whenever a Canadian team loses on HNIC they usually always give the #1 star of the game to the other team's goalie. It's their hockey elitist way of saying "You got lucky!"
For their beady little eyes...
