    I'm really confused about this whole round-robin tournament thing for hockey. If USA has already beaten Canada once, why do we have to do it again to get the gold medal?

    Awwwwweeeeesome for Canada. And thank you, Sid! What a game! With two such good teams, it was a shame someone had to lose.

    What a classic. It's hard to be disappointed...clearly the two best teams were in the final and I think both teams played well enough to win. Ryan Miller was awesome.

    And God...anybody but Sid. WTF.

    Yeah -- it was a very good game. I was sort of sad to see it end the way it did, but it was certainly an exciting and hard-played game. Sidney Crosby did seem a little... dismissive... in his post-game interview. Of the "it shouldn't have been close, but I guess we won so I'm happy" variety.

    Well, for all his talents (and they are otherworldly), he has never been accused of being classy.

    Glad it finished with a proper goal, and not a random shoot out!

    USA won the prelim game.

    The prelim games gave them a much better position in the actual rounds. USA, Finland, Sweden, and Russia didn't need to play the qualifier round at all. In the quarter-finals USA got to play the winner of Switzerland-Belarus, both fairly weak teams. In the semi-final they got to play the winner of Finland-Czech, middling teams.

    Canada had to play the qualifier round, then had to play against Russia (strong team), and then would have had to play Sweden (also a strong team) had Slovakia not pulled off a surprisingly strong showing.

    Well, Canada set the winter olympic record for most gold medals in a year, and they did it on their home turf, so I think they should be content with this.
