Save the snarky 'who cares about hockey' commentary. Even if you do not like hockey, this is the game to watch. These teams were arguably the two heaviest favorites for gold going in, but since the US beat Canada, one of them will not be on the podium.
Canada is carrying the weight of the country on their shoulders, and the arena is sure to be absolutely electric. The game features the best players in the world, including Malkin, Crosby, Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, Semin, Iginla, and the Wings' very own Pavel Datsyuk. Not to mention, Steve Yzerman and Mike Babcock are the figureheads of this Canadian hockey team.
7:30ET. Tune in. If not for the hockey, for the chance to potentially see an entire nation collapse live on TV if Canada loses. They've been waiting a very long time for this.
Let's hear some predictions.
I am going against my gut and will say the Russians pull it out 4-3, with Ovechkin and Datsyuk having excellent games.
