That almost went south for them. I got home, 3-0. I go out to shovel another half foot of snow we got dumped with tonight, and when I come back in 3-2... Holy ****.
I missed apparantly an impressive finish.
An interesting point (and Brent's touched on it) brought up by the local sports talk show I like was "What is more important", and of course it's the Stanley Cup Vs. the Olympic Gold... I think both are important for different reasons obviously. Personally though I feel like the Olympics are tainted with the pro's in it (it's not something I care for), and the one point one guy made from the local CBS station said a goalie can run away with games for his team in the Olympics whereas the length/struggle that is the Stanley Cup makes it more of a true test (plus it can obviously be more balanced, though I think the Olympics are pretty balanced these days surprisingly).
I just found that an interesting topic. I tend to agree that I feel the Stanley Cup's the true "big prize".
I've also been a little disappointed to see things like taunting and things in the Olympics... To me, it's definitely a challenge, it's competitive, but I just feel that goes against the spirit of the Olympics itself. Hockey's the only sport you see it in blatantly/constantly, but it's still just not jiving with what the tournament's about too. That's a tough one to really bitch about but it's there in my mind.
This has probably been one of the better Olympic games though, I must admit.
