    Yikes-looks like the sloppy play getting back to the Americans.

    Bryzgalov was in net for Russia. Gaborik had 2 sweet goals in the final couple of minutes for Slovakia. His first gave them the lead, and the second put the game away with about 30 seconds left.

    Lativa sneaks in a tie 3-3, USA controled the game and the possession, Irbe had a vintage SJ Sharks era Irbe game, the shots and face offs were ridiculously on the US side, but the puck control was kind of sloppy, that should get better over a couple of games, but a 1 point game against the #10 team is an upset in my book.

    Looks like Aebischer stood on his head, 40 saves.

    The U.S. team is dancing with danger today. If they don't beat Kazakhstan then they might find themselves out of the medal round. This team reminds me a lot of the 1998 U.S. team, which generally embarrassed itself. I'm still not sure what made U.S. officials think an old, slow team (particularly on the blue line) was a good idea on a big ice sheet

    Re: Olympic hockey

    The Swedes are losing 4-0, they have been playing a closed style without attacking defenseman (a team with Lindstrom - DUH) it hasn't locked down the Russian attack at all and because of that the Swedes have taken more penalties than they should have.

    On the wide ice speed is the key, young legs and speed in these back to backs favor team with a deep bench of youth... something the USA doesn't have.

    Teams like the USA will need to lock down the defense in those instances and get a gold medal worth performance from the goalie... however Graham doesn't give me that sort of warm and fuzzy.

    U.S. up on Kazakhstan 3-0 after one period.

    They've got the former B.U. goalie in the net this time. IIRC it worked out pretty well the last time the U.S. tried that.

    Re: Olympic hockey

    The radio (which is pretty useless I know) in Buffalo reported this morning whispers that Hasek's injury is ala the 1997 one he had with the Sabres. Aparently, Hasek was upset with his equipment not arriving, did not like the coach of the Czech team and the practice schedule.

    In the 97 playoffs, Hasek was hurt but many feel he exaggerated it because he no longer would play for then coach Ted Nolan. Nolan was not given a new contact after the season, even after winning coach of the year.

    Just speculation, but Hasek never quite got over the reputation of being one who quit on his team in the playoffs in 97.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
