For the record, I think the U.S. will win and that is NOT something I want to see, so my T.V. is off and I will be reading what I hope is a good book.

Good luck to the ladies.  I hope they bring home Gold.

Canada starts off with a sloppy and undisciplined style of hockey - goes down 1-0 in the 1st period - takes 4 penalties (2 were deserved, 2 were fiction) and the americans look like they've hired Earl Hebner as referee.

Canada's lack of discipline looks like it may not be corrected but they perservere to tie the match early in the 2nd and go ahead w/ a Marie Philippe Poulin snipe.

Americans have better form and organization but the canuck girls are resolute and trying hard to stave off some very desperate americans.

History of Canadian hockey says when you achieve a 1 goal lead you start playing kitty bar the door - ie. shut down your offense and go into a defensive shell.

So I expect USA to pelt Szabados for rest of match - unless they tie it or go ahead - then it will be very difficult for Canada to switch gears and go back to offense!

Mark Lee telling a helluva story out there - the Canadian girls are just dying out there, can't hold onto the bloody puck. Sticks look like 7-11 straws

Taking stupid penalties to boot . . .   don't like the way. this. is. going.

M-P Poulin not much of a well-rounded hockey player - a sniper but zero puck possession when required!!!

Americans clearly have a decided advantage in coaching - and it shows. Canada couldn't lock down the gold with 6 minutes left - had a 3 on 1 that resulted in a poor and wide shot, leading to a mass breakaway for an American sniper. SNAP! TYING GOAL!

Good coaches don't let their charges give up breakaways in final minutes!

Now, we've got a team full of nervous girls (Canada) back-stopped by a pro level goalie (Szabados). Canadian play is way too nervy, far too undisciplined ---- now that I've said all that and insulted Poulin - watch her score the WINNING GOAL.....

actually, by all accounts and factoring momentum - the americans should score easily within the first 3 minutes of the OT . . . . . that or they beat us 2-0 in shootouts!

Too bad out kids don't have a "Sid", everyone else seems allergic to the puck

Can I assume the game is in O.T.?

OT - about 7 min. left to shootout. Both teams dead square tired

Shoot-OUT . . .

Don't know if any of the Canadian players have sticks made of anything other than sawdust . . .
