Tonight: Maple Syrup > Apple Pie, in a Golden Way

Canada 3, United States 2 (OT)

Nice job, Team Canada. Brilliant.

Team Canada Loses to Ryan Miller and the Yanks

I’ve been holding my breath ever since about the first period of Game Two vs. Switzerland. Team Canada looked disorganized and got outworked by a highly motivated Swiss team; the hosts were lucky to win in a shootout.

Tonight, Team Canada worked harder but lost to a team with a better goaltender and – it […]

Canada’s Olympic Hockey Dream, 2010: Step One

Step One Complete. Next up: Swiss Timing
