I don't know if anyone saw the hockey game today between the American and Canadian men's teams but what a display was put on by the Canadian men. I
have never seen a team execute so well in every aspect of the game. I think they only made one significant turnover, a third period cough-up, but
fortunately the Americans were not able to capitalize on it.
The one scoring play of the game that gave the Canadians the lead that they would carry through to the end, was, as the kids say, "sick", starting
with a blind pass to the rear and then a shot that was deftly deflected past Jonathan Quick by Jamie Benn.
Link to film highlight of the goal:
Jonathan Quick played extremely well and I think that was probably the only way, other than a goal mouth scramble, that he would have been beaten.
Goaltender, Carey Price, was the best player on the Canadian team for much of the early part of the game and got the shut out.
The Canadian forwards were active forechecking and backchecking like demons. The Canadian defensive formations were virtually impenetrable and a lot
of time was spent in the middle of the rink or in the American end. The Canadians had a lot of chances to score but were frustrated by fine defensive
plays by individual American players or by the speedy Quick.
Very good game overall for anyone, unless you had the wrong dog in the fight, of course. The final between Sweden and Canada should be great if it's
half as good as the Canada/US game.
