They played a helluva game. It was good for canada to be tested with good team effort from their opponent.

Can't wait for the gold game.

What a game!!!

I hope the Yank coaches scout it out real well to find any weaknesses so that we can have a better chance of winning. This is going to be a great match on Sunday.

I'm wondering what special type of dinner I'm going to make for myself. It's got to a goody, that's for sure.

It was a great game with the last few seconds being very tense. Didn't know whether or not to watch the clock or the game!!!

I think the team started watching the clock way too early and forgot a pretty good team was still playing.

exactly, canada stopped pressing, started cruising, just
shooting the puck out of their own end, or just shooting
it in slovak end, came back to bite them in the butt.
Luongo let in one he should have had, but it was the
defence who really 'screwed' up near the end.
Just goes to show you, you have to keep pressing and pushing
for offence, as slovakia has a good team, better than the
russians, they beat the russians.
good on canada, they hung on at the end, although did you
see the little save that luongo made on dimetra right
at the end, just off of his pad and out the other side.

GO CANADA GO

Great game! My little buddy the Beetroot (Halak) played well as usual....if the Slovaks had two periods like that one......YIKES!

Canada better not play this way against the Americans.

Btw, when are Crosby and Thorton gonna play?

Well they played a hell of final 10 minutes that's for sure - in a very short time Canada went from having a distinct chance at winning gold to a distinct chance of winning nothing.

I'm thinking Tempura Prawns w/Thai Sweet Chile dipping sauce, Basmati Rice, Green Salad and some Okanagan Champagne.

That was a crazy game, the end was the crazy part. At first it seemed after the jitters canada got skaiting good then in the end almost lost control lol... Those slavs played a great game, almost scared me lol...

I agree but Luongo - for as great as he is - sometimes seems to ease up on his guard when they are two points ahead and there are times when they seem to lose because of it. He did save them tonight but it was a little too close. I hope they don't get over confident tomorrow.

Yes, a great game. I think Canada will have their hands full in the gold medal game.
