Go USA BEAT CANADA Pt. 2 Hockey Open Game Thread

Didn't really want it to come down to this, and as I said before, I'd have given up a win last Sunday for one this Sunday, but since we have to play them twice, might as well win it!

"Great Canadians Throughout History"

The thing only had four chapters discussing Wayne Gretzky, Alex Trebec (the world's smartest man), the guy who invented the jean jacket, and the first man to legally marry a moose.

Rumor has it that a new edition will include the LA Kings equipment manager, because he gets to sit so close to Jack Johnson while he tapes his stick.

America, FUCK YEAH!

Am I the only one who thinks the "Go Canada Go" cheer has too many syllables? They have to say "Canada" really fast (it sounds more like "Can'da") to make it fit and even then it sounds odd.

They should just say "Can-a-da." Dueling "U-S-A" and "Can-a-da" chants would be awesome.

...but is the US team playing a much less physical game this time out?

I don't think trying to pass and skate with Canada is going to be a great long term strategy for the US.

Should we put up a liveblog so idiots like me who scheduled their trip back home during the game, and can't watch the game because 45345 million people on the train to Toronto are trying to stream it at the same time?

didn't read the revised international play rule book. apparently canada did given crosschecks, elbows and holding are no longer called. oh and goaltender interference. that one didn't make it across the washington border.
