LOL.  Refs handed that to Canada.  I seriously don't see a penalty on Knight on that breakaway.

God damn Canadians.

You knew they weren't killing that off though. Especially in a 5-3 situation.

 

4-3 situation. 

 

Team Canada vs. Team USA in women's hockey is one of the best hockey rivalries in any league, any level, any gender.

When you watch you dont see it - I agree -- but you have to call it. I understand even if it's wrong.   It was that BS slashing call that ruined it all.

2-0 with 3 minutes left to go? Lose 3-2 in OT? Is this woman's hockey or a devils game?

Seems like women's reffing and linesemaning(?) is not up to the standards for a tournament like this. From the linesman being completely out of position almost costing Canada the game to the two atrocious calls in OT giving Canada a PP and the game.

 

Shame because that was great entertainment.

 

On a side note, if you told Kevin Dineen at the start of the year that he would be coaching a team to an Olympic Gold Medal...wonder what the heck he'd say.

For a guy who whines all the time about Habs fans bugging you and being annoying...it's pretty clear you bring it on yourself and deserve it.

You know -- women are like that though.  They like to control things with their own idea of fair.  It's annoying.  Life isn't all even steven fair sh!t.  Maybe my woman's sensibility just makes me see thigns that way though :P

Coming at this from a Canadian perspective...

 

That call was lame at a first glance. But the US were slashing at the goalie several times throughout the game and once, after their captain did it, she was spoken to by the referee. If you don't want to get penalized, don't slash at the goalie for no reason. 

 

Refs have a tough job in women's hockey. Some of the dives in this game were comical. When body checking isn't allowed any contact draws a fall. Refs are constantly playing this makeup call garbage. Don't know what the solution is. Allow bodychecking?

It had technically become a 5-3, no? Or it would have, at least.

My point was that there was no way the US was killing off the powerplays.

for one i never or very very very rarely whine about refs, calls goes your way sometimes and sometimes it doesnt. People ALWAYS simply focus and remember the ones that goes against them though.

 

edit: plus it has nothing to do with me that habs fans called the cops on chara and bullsh!t like that lol absolutely nothing to do with me or deserving it

Hopefully this lights a fire under their asses.

In fairness, if that puck slides into the open net instead of into the post, you'd have all of Canadian bitching about the reffing right now.

We owe them something fierce. Tomorrow they get to feel they way we feel today, and the way we felt in 02 and 10.

The US does have only themselves to blame.  2-0 lead with 4 minutes to go should be a win.

 

Still doesn't excuse the officiating in OT though.

I hope Phil goes in beast mode watching his sister's team get screwed like that.  It's funny though.  Imagine if that empty net chance had gone in.  Canada would be crying about the linesmen getting in the way.
