Oh, right, and Troy Terry doing his best TJ Oshie impersonation on the other end.


And that is why I love this sport!

I mean come on, shootout wins in the semi-final AND final. Hockey on TV can't realistically portray the speed and toughness it takes to play this sport, but if you can't enjoy a game like last night, head to the bowling alley.


That was my least favourite aspect of the whole tourney

These games shouldn't be decided in a skills competition thrown in at the end. Maybe it's impractical to get rid of the shootout in the semis and before, but there's no good reason to have a shootout in the final.

Congrats to Team USA.


There's a very good reason

These kids are in season on loan from their typical clubs. 5 20 minute OTs is going to severely hamper their ability to play and put them at a very high injury risk.

Shootouts are a necessary evil for the players and a billion times better than soccer PKs.

Still wish they would go 2 OTs in the final before going to SO.


Hey Didi, mark your clock for 3:15 to call your doctor. *
