    3-1 to the USA was it? Undefeated in pool play, 4-0. Hope their play continues.

    It was important to finish first in the pool, in order to avoid the Swedes until the final. They're all studded up again this year.

    PS: now I can wear my USA jersey to hockey on Monday. :D

    USA looks good, same for Sweden. Canada always seems to have a goaltending problem in this tournament lately. Not to mention, third overall pick Pierre Luc Dubois, has been MIA. I predict a big fat disappointing bronze.

    Wow - that final was incredible. So much more exciting than the NHL.

    Great battle by our guys, to fight back from two separate two-goal deficits. Both teams played with so much passion and intensity.

    Can't wait for the outdoor game next NYE between USA & Canada.

    4 0n 4 in the OT would have been a better move. I don't like how the finals are different from the round robin.

    I was quite proud of both teams. There were no bad acts, and not an ounce of quit anywhere. Both teams will have 8-9 returning players next year, when Buffalo will be the host city. Some of you guys should be able to get to see some of those games. I went to some of the them when they were here in Calgary in 2012 and it was absolutely terrific.

    Canada with 6 PP and all that talent and one goal to show for it. That was the game right there. That Kid greenway is from Canton, where i played minor hockey growing up. of course then i ran out of place to play for high school as my high-school had no freaking team.

    Got it. On a side note, my wife and Jordan Greenway's mother (Shannon) used to work together and are friends. They were texting each other furiously last night , Lol. Jordan's brother, JD,plays for Wisconsin, defense, and we went with Shannon to see play against St. Lawrence earlier this year. Both boys have a bright future
