Team USA (M) Hockey qualification vs. Slovakia

Submitted by goblueram on February 19th, 2018 at 9:48 PM

After a disappointing start to the tourney losing to Slovenia, then a bounce back win against Slovakia, and finally a blowout loss to OAR (Russia), Team USA finished in 7th place out of 12 in the group stages.  Certainly a disappointment, but not entirely unexpected.  As it turned out in the bracket, the Slovaks came in at 10th (lowest seed to win a game) and set up the rematch for a spot in the quarterfinals.  It's win or go home!

I know they won't care and I'm just one person, but I won't go to any games(used to 2-3 a year), or watch it on tv.

I should have realized it but when I turned it on and it was a bunch of who-dats(who bless their hearts are trying), from random places who haven't practiced or played together is just annoying.  Rather the NHL turn it into their All-Star game for the year and promote the hell out of it.

Owners are greedy Aholes.  Nuff said.

I really would have liked to see Kieffer Bellows and Casey Mittelstadt on this team, amongst a couple of others from the World Jr's team. Those two would have been noticeable on the ice, more so than some of the guys on this team.

This is a good time to put this game away. 2 minutes of a 5-on-3 and I think another 3 minutes of 5-on-4 if I'm hearing this correctly. 2 penalties on Slovakia on the same time.
