Has anyone watched any of the Olympics matches yet? I haven't had the chance to see the women's matches but I think I found a site that does replays so I'm stoked to see what happened.

 

Also predictions for the men's teams? I saw a lot of talk on facebook for Team Finland but it seemed a little unfounded.

Finland is always a threat because of their goaltending, but that hasn't been enough so far.  My picks are Sweden and Canada, in that order.

 

Watching US-Canada women right now.  Really even game after one.

Not happy with the outcome but that was a kind of awesome game overall.

Still haven't had the opportunity to watch any yet, but holy sh*t the injuries are killing me!!! Really scared to hear about Z and also the fact that Pav could be injured, too.

Datsyuk playing worries me.  He's not healthy and you can tell.  He should be taking time to heal right now.

 

Zetterberg...  That didn't happen during a game, it could have come up even if he was over here.  That said, the flight over there or the training schedule there or anything else could have been a factor.  We'll never know.

Watching USA vs Russia now...beautiful goal by Datsyk...can't decide whether to support Red Wings (and teams they play for) or go nationalistic/xenophobe...don't want to see cheap hits on Datsyk, for sure....too bad we still have to endure the nbc commentators....65* in Sochi....

So do we think that quick displaced his goal on purpose? Considering the international rules, wouldn't that be a smart move for every goal to consider?

Oh he absolutely did it on purpose.  As I was saying offline at the time, that's the make-up for the second Canadian goal against the US women earlier this week.  Both goals were logically good but legally bad, the Canadian one was allowed but the Russian one called back.

Watching swedes vs Finns....was just wondering why I wasn't seeing Nyquist when the commentators explained that he was just playing his first shift of the game with most of the second period gone....

Not gonna lie, after the gold medal game for the women, I lost a lot of interest.  Like there was no point in watching, the result was inevitable.
