Agreed. Embarrassingly bad offensive performance. Babcock is 10x the coach Bylsma is.

Bylsma's main problem is he doesn't adjust during the game. If his system isn't working, then he just keeps trying it. See every series the Pens have been eliminated since their cup. He ends up having good regular seasons, but lackluster playoff results.

I think the US defense was their main weakness. They didn't have the two way studs like Canada that can jump into the play and be solid in their own end. Suter and McDonagh were very solid. Everyone else was hit or miss.

Darn it. I was hoping the US men have chance to beat Canada.

Oh, well. We will cream you guys in basketball in the next summer olympic. King James LeBron slam dunk right on Steve Nash's face.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

This looked like a Kings game

Quick stood on his head and got no support whatsoever. But team Canada has great players, especially Doughty and Carter (yes I am bias), and I hope they win it all again.

A bronze would be cool for the US, but I don't know if they can beat Finland.

Gold line:

CAN -200
SWE +160

Much worse that I thought it would be. Terrible line. Might just roll with SWE gold bet.

My province has approved all bars to serve alcohol at 5am Sunday for the Canada/Sweden game.

No good will come of this.

Doughty has been amazing for us. Our D has been fantastic. I wish we could score some goals, but as long as we carry the play then I think we're okay. I keep thinking Stamkos is at home thinking "Damn, I would of scored there!".

I think you guys will beat Finland, as long as the guys are into the game.

Great save by Kesler.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

Wow, this bronze medal game is off to a crazy start. Both teams should be on the board as they both crashed the net on their ends with shot after shot. Hell it seemed like at one point that everyone but Finland's goalie was in the USA crease. But Quick stood tall and kept everything out, same with the Finland goalie.

Wild opening here.

Yep. I'm starting to think USA won't score again until 2018. USA pros may never score again.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

The US needs to play in the smaller arena. This is the third game they've played in this big arena, with the other two being the Canada and Russia games. I think the other arena had the bouncy boards, and they scored at least 5 goals in every game they played there.

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey, February 8-23

I tell you what, NBCSN is doing a terrific job advertising itself. They have a slate of sports that aren't "mainstream" (hockey and soccer headlining those), which handicaps their ability to pimp themselves to the American viewer.... yet I'm finding that their promos are stirring.

Whomever NBC hired to manage their advertising campaign deserves kudos. And these spots need to air in rotation on their other networks IMO... they work.

Of course it would be Selanne.

And that one might have just sealed it up.

Wow, Quick really got fooled there. I don't think I've ever seen him get schooled like that before.

I think this is just a brutal game for the US to have to play, especially with such a quick turnaround after yesterday's game.

Streak of not medaling outside of North America will continue.
