USA vs Canada aka: Do you believe in… Americans or Oh, No Canada

21st
Feb. × ’10

Damn what a game Adrian Dater @adater tweeted “That third period should be immediately sent to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Unreal. Best period I’ve seen in years.” And no one will make a saner statement about it. Three Stars: #3 Ryan Kesler. Mr Hustle-Muscle was everywhere he needed to be all night doing the […]

Period #2 USA vs Canada

21st
Feb. × ’10

Best defenseman of the game: Brian Rafalski Best American forward: Dustin Brown Best Canadian forward: Eric Staal Great game so far. Look […]

USA vs Canada

21st
Feb. × ’10

Uncharacteristic puck bobbles by “Mr. They Made The Trapezoid To Give Other Teams Hope”, sloppy clears by both bluelines, ferocious forechecking and backchecking by both teams. Three Stars of the period: #3 Eric Staal, […]

3rd Period Russia Czech’s

21st
Feb. × ’10

Wow. What a contrast of styles this period. The Czech’s are all about misdirection, screens and being in position to recover a rebound. The Russians are all the Chicago polititicos of the tournament; Shoot early, and shoot often. As I suspected much more passion by the Republic than in the second period, had they played […]

Russia Vs Czech’s 2nd period

21st
Feb. × ’10

This was a bit different from the first period. There were less of the shattering hits that littered the opening. There were however more gloves in faces, some snarl. The Russians controlled the period, but took some really sloppy penalties. The Russian goal was a solid shot but this period was less entertaining than the […]

Russia vs Czecks 1st period

21st
Feb. × ’10

Watching the first period there are two important things you need to take away from the play so far. 1) Is the simple one. The Russians have the best players on the ice, it doesn’t matter if its the two guys from Washington, the transplant to New Jersey, or the guy from Hockey Town. 2) […]
