Oh man this is funny. They Interviewed Nicklas Backstrom's 84 year old grandma before the game, and she said that "he'll make a fool of himself" at the Olympics, and that "he's played poorly for a long time", and even dissed the Caps, saying that "they had no game, as a whole."

Lmao. I'm dying. Old people do not give a sh!t

He's a good goalie on a bad team. And my guess is, they are saving him for the next two games, so they go into the quarterfinals 2-1 and not have him shaken up by a automatic loss.

Because he's hot garbage juice in net?

He's one of the worst goalies in the league.

Having watched bits of both games and seeng Kovy Fly and Parise gain the zone, keep plays alive and forecheck its easy to see why the Devils have such a hard tme scoring now they are gone.

 

both just so tallented, we just dont have any players that tallented anywhere near our roster.

3-1 USA in 2nd.

 

Only Slovak goal scored on brutal missed offside call.  US responds with nice goals from Kessler and Stastny.

USA looks great.  I was expecting Slovakia to be better than this.

Did someone put laxative in Slovakia's water bottles or something?

I think Elias and Jagr are equally talented but after that there is a big difference

Kovy scoring that goal brought a tear to my eye. Dammit Kovy. I hate you.

That game was thoroughly enjoyable. I like it when the team I'm rooting for scores a lot of goals. Nice change of pace. :P

I do miss Kovy, watching him today brought back a lot good and bad memories. At least he was never boring.

Canada is just gonna roll these dudes.

Considering this Canadian team is arguably the best hockey team ever assembled, and we know Norway has one player on an NHL roster, I think this is an extremely impressive showing. I'll be watching them for the rest of the tournament. They're not as soft as most European teams. And it's not as if you can expect anyone to stop 38 of 38, and the Norwegian goalie did play well, the goals were generally stoppable. Who knows what happens if Norway has an NHL-caliber goaltender.

That was a great showing by Norway, they should be proud of the way they played. They hung with one of the best groups of NHL talent ever assembled with only one NHL'er on their roster- that's impressive. Plus the game got a little chippy at the end. I love chippiness in my Olympic hockey.

Both Slovenia and Norway gave Russia and Canada a lot of problems today.  Good on them for putting forth an effort.  I'd also argue that Austria played hard against Finland as well.
