No I thought it was pretty amazing, too. Definitely some bias, though.

People should give more love to Iginla, dude made the pass on his knees to Sid so he could score that goal. This win is going down in history books; if I didn't know better, I would say the whole thing was scripted.

Canada loses a heartbreaking 5-3 in the prelims despite out shooting the US 40-20(ish). Goes to dominate our arch rivals the Russians 7-3 to break the 50 year drought. Then we play a game against the Slovaks who upset both the Russians and Swedes (who are the defending champions) in a close 3-2 game.

Finally, at the gold medal game we go up 2-0 to only have the Americans climb back and score the tying goal with only 25s left to go. Then we come out guns blazing in OT and pressure the Americans until Sid the Kid scores the game winning goal. How crazy is that?

Yes,the reason why I was inactive was that I was viewing the Olympics(mens hockey),an excellent deserving medal showing what Canada did. Most of the time Crosby was invisible at times but he sure wasn't invisible when he took the feed from Jarome Iginla,who is the Calgary Flames captain(alternate captain of Team Canada). I was also disappointed in how Canada played on the last few minutes especially of lack of awarness around Luongo leaving Parise his goal that not only Luongo but anybody would have trouble saving,having two guys screening him. Nonetheless Canada has won gold. That's the difference between Luongo and Brodeur,thank God head coach of Canada decided to go along with Luongo rather then Brodeur. Shows the team Canada has improved massively over 4 years,after finishing 7th in the tournament in Turrin now placing # 1 in the Vancouver 2010 olympics.

That is IF the NHL decides to allow the players to visit as I do admit it does affect the schedule and players. But hopefully let's see in 4 years, shall we?

Now for someone who isn't exposed to much NHL as I live in Australia, I watched this game and loved it. Such an exciting game.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

I was very disappointed with the outcome of this game but America did better than expected. Luongo was pretty crappy though. He is an amazing goaltender usually but he had zero puck control that night and I was so frustrated that the US players weren't capitalizing on those rebound chances. As soon as they started doing it, they tied the game up.

Congrats to team Canada though. They had an amazing team full of superstar players. I actually like a lot of the players that are on that team, just had to root for my home country. I just wish anybody besides Crosby would have scored the winning goal. I can't stand Crosby even the slightest bit.

The Americans got lucky the 1st game. Played much better then 2nd game.

Parise is a beast, i was saying that all night long, if i could pick one American to come play for Canada, its him. Makes sense considering his father is a canadian hockey hero from 1972.

I cant stand Brian Burke and Ron Wilson. two leafs losers. nice to see them lose again.

Parise was very good. I thought Kane played very well too.

There were guys at the gym talking about how the Russians were out party'n the night before that game.

I think we got our Vancouver Ho's to thank for their lack luster performance... way to go Vancouver Ho's!

Note: Vancouver's athletes village used 100k of condoms for the 3k of athletes being housed there... dang, party central

I don't consider that a lucky win. They were outshot by a longshot but they made the most of their oppurtunities and Miller was playing incredible that night. I don't think it is luck. USA's goalie just had a much better game than Canada's did.
