If the US carried the play most of the game, why didn't it translate into more goals? There's a reason the puck didn't go into the net. Was it good defense or poor offense? As you say, it's not reasonable to credit luck with 60 minutes of hockey.

The only explanation is that neither team carried the play most of the game. I'd like to see the stats of the amount of time spent in each other's ends and the number of shots on goal. That will tell the story. We might perhaps be a bit biased rooting for our favorites.

Now, I know damned all about hockey......But if it can be compared in any way at all to soccer (I think it can) then the part that I saw (Overtime) had the Canadians all over the US apart from a couple of break away chances. No "lucking out" involved.

and a lot of the us shots were from just inside of the blue line with no traffic in front of the goalie. not very effective.

I dunno crap aboot hockey but I think the first game between US/Canada was just this. US got outplayed but got lucky. This gold medal game was imo pretty damn close but Canada played better once they went to 4-on-4.

I also agree that the US was making a lot of long shots where the Canada team seemed to take better shots.

All hail Jonathan Toews!

Wow! What a tourney he had. He showed the world that he is an elite player on both ends of the ice at just 21 years old.

He will be an immeasurably valuable asset to Team Canada for many years and I hope he wears the C in Chicago until he retires.
