I actually think this is too bad. It means so little to the US, but to Canada it would have been a nice victory.

What an awesome game. The US was up 5-3 with less than 3 minutes to play. Captain Canada Jordan Eberle scored 2 goals in the final 2 and a half minutes to tie it up but it wasn't enough as Carlson scored in OT.

The US team was very young and a lot of them played together last year when the US won the world under 18 gold. They have terrific speed and blocked more shots than I have ever seen blocked before. Great job and well earned in a thriller of a game.

The US can return 9 players from this team next year when they try to defend on home soil in Buffalo. I'll be in the stands next year ;-D

This.

The US scares me a lot again for next year. They said pre-tournament that they were gearing up for next year on home ice. That is why the had so man younger guys on the roster.

Incredible game though again.

The only problem with the trophy is the goofy hockey guy on top. Maybe the guy at the trophy store could put a little football guy on there.
