Geez.......talk about choking.

Up 2-0 with 3:30 to play and lose.

That was an exciting finish.

The real test comes tomorrow and the CDN men against US.

My money is on Canada but confidence is not high. 

I would really hate for Kessel to have a good game against us.  Not sure how Toronto fans would react if he's responsible for knocking Canada out.

That's twice our gals have had the game won and started "playing to not lose".......I didn't find it all that exciting, but congrats to your girls.

Tomorrow should be a classic.

Definitely a choke fest. USA dominated for the first 56 minutes then gave it away by playing prevent defense.

The men's game should be interesting since USA has been scoring easily since the Russia win and Canada has been having a hard time scoring. As LB said, "Tomorrow should be a classic.".

This is one reason why I can't stand sports that are judged.

I am over the Olympics now, and ready for them to fade away. I admit, I am not a huge Winter Olympic fan anyways, although I did like watching the Snowboard and Ski Cross races.

Thanks God for the X Games and the IOC for putting in XGames type of events or we would not have as many medals!

Women's hockey has got to improve their officiating. It was pretty atrocious in this Olympics. Not biased, just terrible.

Yup, that is why I am not big fan of any sport where the outcome is determined by judges.

THAT, was a very well selected team.

There is plenty of gold medal winning hockey playing talent to go around in 4-6 countries....but without a doubt, Canada's selection/coaching is without equal. 

Great team....congratulations Canada!!

25 medals ... not too shabby. We need a speedskating oval in either Toronto, Ottawa or Montreal. Or all 3 The Dutch would have to look out if we do that. It would open up a massive talent pool with inside ice.

I always wanted to try speed skating. I never got a chance to before we lost our oval in Vancouver.
