That game was awesome, one of the best games I ever seen. The Russians tried to mount a big time comeback, but some amazing saves by Mike Richter (who apparently found his groove from 1994) saved the U.S.
Too bad they'll lose to the mighty Canadian team. (Can you guess who I'm cheering for?)
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
I wish the NHL would adopt the bigger ring the Olympics uses. It makes the game so much more exciting. Unfortunately, the league wouldn't want to give up the seats they would have to remove to make the ice larger.
The sad part about this deal is that the Flyers have yet to address their need for another goal scorer. They are still holding out hope that LeClair is a full time player when he has fallen to the ranks of injury prone veteran.
