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 rumor in some of the Philly papers was also that the Flyers were trying to put a game against the Pens together outdoors at Beaver Stadium on the campus of Penn State. Fun game to watch. Hated the long stoppages, though.
