So with women's team the only real competition is US, that should not mean playing any less against any of the teams they meet.

First game went as suspected, 5 to 0 for Team Canada. Second game should be similar

I know this highly doubtful, I wouldn't mind if Fin's totally surprise the US tonight & upset them.

Congratulations to US on your gold medal victory.

As I've before, I'm not a fan/supporter of the shootout.... leave it to soccer field.

Added: the goal that US scored to tie up the game in 3rd period, was huge line change mistake by Canada.

The US was the better team. Faster, more aggressive. Canada spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to get out of their own end.

I only watched the first 2 periods and the penalties that were called against Canada were valid but the refs missed calling some against the US. Having said that you can't blame ref'ing if you lose you can only blame yourself or the fact that the other team played better.

USA was dominant, they usually are. We just have been lucky at the Olympics, up until now. No lack of effort, the Yanks were just better. imho
