Quick named starter, just saw on Twitter

 

Good.

I still think Miller is a gigantic douche.

Great game so far. Penalties costing the Czechs.

 

How good a skater is Erik Karlsson. Incredible to watch.

 

Also Ekman-Larsson has been immense.

I'm feeling alright about having EK and OEL manning the points on the PP...

Karlsson is the total offensive package. The defensive game needs to improve but his shot, his speed, the way he thinks the game...once in a generation talent.

Zidlicky from Elias against Lundqvist

That is a very good scoring summary to hear.

This looks familiar, a bunch of Devils clawing back from behind!

 

If you want to see familiar watch the swiss...Switzerland is out-shooting, out-chancing, out-possessing...and tied 0-0.

I really wonder what this game looks like now if you start Salak or Pavelec as the starter. Czech Republic making Sweden look very beatable. Hell, even Lundqvist doesn't look too great, not making any crazy saves.

Definitely getting up early to watch the US vs Slovakia game.  Can't wait.  Sucks the US women lost to Canada.

What was the deal with that second Canadian goal?  The whistle clearly blows when the puck is still a few inches from the goal line, and if they use the "intent to blow" rule in international play, then that was even earlier.  Sounds like a referee who allowed herself to get caught up in the moment.  Whichever American player it was that put that puck in while trying to push it to her goaltender must be feeling sick.

may have been tricky but at the end of the day it was the right call. The whistle went a little before the puck cross but the goalie never had possession so it would have been a bad call the play dead too. Like TG said, that play clearly should have been a goal and the refs made it count.

I didn't watch the game.  But I definitely heard about the shoddy reffing though.

Did anyone see that interview with Toews, where he was asked about Norway? I don't even think he knew who they were playing. Oh man, if Norway wins that game.

Why isn't Pavelec playing?

 

Because he's hot garbage juice in net?

Froilk was firing away on the Queen at the end to no avail.

I'm sick and tired of the Canadian women beating our women. Our girls better sack up for that gold medal game and return the damn favor. We owe them one or two or three.
