Team USA (M) Hockey game 3 vs. OAR (Olympic Athletes from Russia)

Submitted by goblueram on February 17th, 2018 at 7:07 AM

Team USA closes out the round robin group stage against the Olympic Athletes from Russia.  It's been a crazy group with USA and OAR dropping openers to Slovenia and Slovakia, then flipping the script in game two.  On paper this is a bad mismatch...Pavel Datsyuk, Ilya Kovalchuk, and a host of proven stars for OAR.

Who can forget 4 years ago at this same spot in the group stage, when USA and Russia took it all the way to a shootout and beyond.  TJ Oshie!

USA vs. OAR, 7:10 am est, USA Network, NBCSports App, etc.

USA! USA! USA!

Last night's results:
Czech Republic 3 - 2 Canada (SO),  Switzerland 8 - 0 South Korea, Slovakia and Slovenia are also squaring off during our game.

It's not worse than 1-0. I've never seen a team on the power play take 30 seconds to get the puck out of its own end. Or, 40 seconds to stop the play on a delayed penalty. Or, lose 15 of 18 face-offs.

I'm already tired of this Russian domination crap.  Fuck you, Bettman.

2-0...  And now a crap high stick call and OAR is back on the PP.  This is going to be ugly.

Again - Fuck you, Bettman.

This US team seems so uninspired compared to previous versions (and much more so than the women's team). I really hope the fans in the us and Canada give the nhl owners hell for their greedy decision to keep the best players out.
