Congrats to Team Finland for an amazing come-from-behind victory to capture the Bronze Medal over Zdeno Chara and Team Slovakia, 5-3.
However, tomorrow, is the moment we’ve ll been waiting for. The NHL break — which has now lasted for over just over two-weeks for most teams, and a roster freeze that ceased transactions between all teams — is now all worth while: Team USA vs. Team Canada for the Gold Medal.
USA: 5 games played, 22 total goals-for and six goals-against — 4.4 GF; 1.2 GA average
CAN: 6 games played, 32 total goals-for and 14 goals-against — 5.3 GF; 2.3 GA average
Both teams can light the lamp, and both teams’ have the net-minders to stand on their head and steal games. So nonetheless, goaltenders will be the equalizers and game-breakers this afternoon [3:15 p.m. EST on NBC, CTV, TSN, SNET, V, RDS]. Sit down, relax, and grab your favorite beverage(s), because we won’t see another game like this for another four years.
