Some say tickets are going for as high as $5K. It will be the most watched television event in Canadian history.
Luongo will need the game of his life. Not sure if he's at the level but he has one chance to create a legacy. He's usually good for a cheesy goal or two but this game might not have room for them.
Miller will need the game of his life too.
So, anyone going to watch the game?
how these games get started in the first 10 minutes or so
can have a big affect on the outcome, eg. finland and the
u.s.a., as finland self destructed in the first 10 minutes
of that game, kiprisoff was all done, completely unwound,
and end of period was 6-0, no more score after that, but
damage was done very early, made u.s. look good, but
finland did it to themselves, and could not snap out of it.
I don't think luongo will have to 'win' this game for canada, defense is so good, but will have to come up
big now and then, and do his part, just like all of
the players, no one can take this one off, they must
be at their best, same with the u.s.
