Amazing win for USA hockey tonight...strange saying something positive about a Buffalo Sabre, it pains me actually, but Ryan Miller is playing out of his mind, stopping 42 of 45 shots tonight. Rafalski going nuts as well. Really best of both worlds (as a 'Canes fan) getting a goal for Staal but seeing the US win an incredibly intense hockey match. Having said that, i think there's a lot of hyperbole in the analysis of this as "one of the most important games ever" for Canadian hockey etc....not even an elimination game! obviously a lot of hockey to be played yet, and Russia looked pretty great beating Czech Republic.
MSNBC is right now trying to demonstrate how disappointed all Canadians are but it's difficult because everyone on the street is acting so drunk and happy and... not disappointed.
