    And maybe the US isn't even here if the refs don't screw Russia. You have to overcome those things and the US had every opportunity to. They blew way, way too many glorious chances.

    I thought he was OK, not great, but just OK. The guy at the other end of the ice was far superior. It wasn't really close IMO.

    Except they didnt. Neither announcer had any idea why it wasnt a good goal, and they watch IIHF hockey. I have no idea either.

    Neither did anyone in the WJC thread, just random speculation (goalie interference, whistle blew, crease violation, etc...).

    His performance has been greatly overrated IMO. He was OK.

    It was a crease violation, they did say that IIRC.

    Now, in this case, that actually is an IIHF rule, and I wish it was an NHL rule too - it's not soccer. You shouldnt be able to angle a puck into the net with your skate.

    Back in the day that wasn't a good goal in the NHL either, until Bettman started his campaign to do anything possible for "more scoring" plays.

    This couldnt have gone any better from an NJ perspective except maybe Smith making the finals as well.

    Nice cheer for J. Hughes, though I think they were thinking it was Q. Hughes.

    It's really amazing that both Canada and Sweden are walking away without medals. The world hockey scene may finally be shifting. I still think Canada had the best team in the tourney and just fell asleep at the wheel, but in the past they could get away with that. Not anymore.

    Its a big reason I think the World Cup of Hockey can work if done properly - like the World Cup of Soccer.

    Hockey is a top 5-6 sport worldwide in total fans

    Talvitie definitely outplayed a lot of guys at this torunament with much more pedigree than he has.

    uhhhhhh the goalie was not the issue lol. The U.S. defeated themselves + the disallowed goal which should've been a goal

    IMO, the US did a very good job limiting the number of high danger scoring opportunities other teams had. He made the easy saves, but he didn't do anything spectacular IMO. He definitely got outplayed in this game. The US had a ton of really great chances and had an exceptionally tough time converting. If you switch goalies in this game, IMO, the game would have been pretty one-sided.
