    Right. I mean, who doesn't know it's a good decision to smoke on occasion...

    Who was talking about an occasional beer?

    How 'bout a threepeat season series sweep of Badgers & Bulldogs in 2014-2015? Okay...not likely.

    Ok Dave. I like you and you seem to be good at math. So tell me, what are the winning #s for the jackpot?

    Let us look at the numbers, because they never lie (Well unless you are a liberal!). Your point above is the US & Canada produced some college teams to play each other. And in the beginning the scores were one sided. Look at the pool they had to choose from, many many players. Look at the carrot, EDUCATION. How many players in each country? #1 & 2 in female players, by a lot.

    "Slovakia is relegated to the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Womens Championship Div. IA", how many female players does Slovakia have? 315! How are they going to do it? I am happy to help. What is the action plan? Money is not it.

    Watching the USA Hockey Blog. Some of the comments are; 1. glad it is a game, meaning 1-1. 2. Not many people will even pay $4.99 to watch the game.

    Excellent job by Rod Black and Cheryl Pounder of calling the game on TSN2.

    USA down 3-2 but really starting to take it to the Canadians, who are losing their composure with a number of frustration penalties.

    Canada's gotten the bounces so far, but USA is due.

    USA loses in OT, so you might want to have two (or three) beers.

    Well, have one anyway.

    From the blog, sounded like a turnover on a ill timed US line change.

    Nah, I'll still have one in honor of a tourney well played.

    Not a big fan of 4-on-4 for a 20-minute OT. I can see it more when OT is only five minutes, but the odds are good that 20 minutes will produce a winner with 5-on-5. A big problem with 4-on-4 is any penalty then produces a 4-on-3 PP.

    The fans certainly got more than their money's worth...great, fast, exciting game with lots of momentum shifts and a few strange things as well. Looked like a full house.

    And Congratulations to Team Switzerland...their Bronze Medal win has to be good for the game. Looks good on them.

    Yes,
    Tough turnover during OT but a very opportunistic Canadian team took advantage. Good game and good live feed. Could have gone either way but Canada seemed to be the more aggressive team in front of their own net while in the other end the US left a bit too much room for rebounds and trailers. They are so evenly matched it's a bounce or two that determines the winner. Great effort ladies!

    That 9-2 game doesn't mean a whole-heck of a lot not now does it? Great game for both teams, and congrats to team CANADA!

    Was this game not aired on TV in the US?

    Friggin blog, you are looking for blame as per usual. Understand the the game first, then you might be able to make a intelligent, constructive conclusion. Every time a goal is scored, almost always, the team that scores it, deserves it. You are are an idiot, as per usual.

    Re: 2012 Women's Worlds

    I think Team USA has a goaltending controversy and perhaps a coaching. The problem with losing this game is that you have to wait a whole year to redeem yourself in another one game event (i.e. next years Worlds).

    Molly is perhaps the best technical goalie but as Herb Brooks said, "I'm not looking for the best players, Craig, I'm lookin' for the right ones." Someone on here has a tag that quotes Toe Blake on goalies: "You get four goals off them or five but the goal you've got to have to win somehow the great ones don't let you get it." Clearly not the case last night for Team USA.

    It was on a channel that is not always offered. Universal Sports isn't a channel that I get on cable, but apparently, people with satellite subscriptions could watch.
