T.J. Oshie = God
Are you kidding?
Okay, so I didn’t wake up at 4:30 am in California to catch the game (plus my daughter had 102 fever, so that ruined Valentine’s day) but tun, to wake up to THIS (and praying my DVR didn’t run out before the game ended)
Thank God for the US power play. Pavel Datsyuk singlehandedly carried the Russians on his back. The amazing thing about Datsyuk’s first goal is that he won the face-off deep in his own zone.
There’s a reason Radulov isn’t in the NHL. He’s a selfish greedy idiot. His first penalty was mind-numbingly idiotic and it helped the US tie the game.
Speaking of idiots, Dustin Brown’s now infamous “knee” job sent him to the box for the 2nd time in the game, and Datsyuk made them pay. Brown never saw any ice time after that.
I nearly cried late in the 3rd when Tyutin scored. If ever there was a chance to call, “the fix is in” or to fuel conspiracy theorists, this would have been the time. When YOU watched the replay and saw the net was off, didn’t YOU call, “NO GOAL” but didn’t you secretly think that some poor Russian would lose his life if he/she DID overturn the goal?
They did. They got it right!
Slava Voynov wasn’t too happy with his American teammate, saying Quick knocked the net off himself. ”I’ve seen him do it before” he told reporters. OUCH! You get the feeling Voynov doesn’t like Brown? Just look at the check Voynov threw on Brown in the 1st.
Both US goals were scored with Radulov in the box.
4 on 3 to start OT. I’ve chewed my nails up to my elbow.
How does Jonathan Kane not score on that breakaway?
Cam Fowler > Jack Johnson
Ovechkin-Kovalchuk-Malkin on the pp is just fricken scary.
That shootout almost made me upchuck my Captain Crunch when Datsyuk gave the Ruskies a 2-1 advantage in round 5.
Oh, one more thing. FUCK YOU KOVAL-CHOKE!
Anze Kopitar scored a 3rd period goal and his Slovenia team upset Slovakia for their first ever Olympic win. Slovakia has to play Russia tomorrow. They were already pasted by the US, just lost to Anze and now face a pissed of Russian team.
