PRESSURE! :eat:

It's pretty apparent, after the meltdown by Gretzky, that team Canada is about to explode under the pressure. I read somewhere that, even if the U.S. loses tomorrow, it'll still be considered a success for them. Canada on the other hand is feeling the vice-grip pressure of not having won a gold in hockey since the 1950's.

Lemiuex, Sakic, Blake, and the boys are the best there are but they're playing like a team with something to lose. If they come out loose tomorrow, they'll probably win, but that's not going to happen; they'll meltdown along with they're coach (historically one of the coolest heads in all of pro sports.)

My prediction: U.S. 3, Canada 2. At any rate it should be a good game...Go Avs!:D

It'll come down to penalty shots (They do have those after one OT period in the Olympics, right?)

Im not much of a hockey fan, but I know a little bit about the sport. The USA will win 3-2, with Mike Modano scored with two minutes left in the game to win it.

This is actually a no lose scenario for me! USA or CNADA are home favorites!NORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY HAS TAKEN OVER!!! USA will win! Too much pressure on the Canucks!! Richter has been solid and the QUEBEC native(LEMIEUX) has been mediocre!! They will be throwing hats on the ice as LeClaire has a hat trick in a 6-3 rout of Canada! Although MARIO scores 2 goals!!;) GO USA!!!

if Lemieux is mediocre, he's 2 times better rather than 5 times better than any players in the NHL:lol:

BTW 06, i think it's MSNBC but im not sure...in Canada, it's on TSN

It is on NBC, they don't air these kind of events on cable. As for the game itself, I think people in Canada care a lot more than the ones here. Hockey is a joke in America.

i'm not really too excited about hockey either, but if you went to the pond in LA and said hockey was a joke, i don't think you would walk out, carried maybe!:D

Someone who says hockey's a joke has obviously never watched hockey. These guys get hit just about as hard as any football player and they have incredible skill. Even though you have the Rangers & Islanders up there in NYC Ice, go check out a game (make sure you sit within the first 30 rows) and I'm about 90% sure you'll change your tune.

I have gone to a Rangers game before, and it is cool being there, but watching it on TV is more boring then watching paint dry. The puck just goes back and forth. Olympic hockey is better then NHL though, and the NHL should switch its rules to the Olympic rules, but keep the occasional fighting.

I hope you're watching this game, Ice. It's a good one.

That was a great game...and it was great for hockey in general to have Canada vs USA for gold

Joe Sakic is the man... it kills me not being able to go see him anymore:(

Quebec Nordiques forever:)

This bit about Canada not winning a gold in 50 years may be true, but that's incredibly deceiving and it's easy to criticize. Anybody who knows international hockey knows why criticizing them for not having won a gold in 50 years is bullshoot. Only one other country has produced hockey players like Canada...Russia.
