The Canadian men have been functional this Olympics, but the spark that will ignite a nation remains untouched. Today, none of it matters. The lack of goals, the forwards struggling, the Crosby blah blah blah. Today, Team Canada meets a nation who plays the game the way we do, and lordy this thing is going to rock and roll.
The Americans are devoted to running through you, not around. Team USA is going to rip it up and rock it up and roll it up and ball it up. Canada? That’s the wheelhouse. This game is guaranteed to be a classic, it’s a hockey cage match and the speed will be epic. Tough, physical, skilled, beautiful.
This. is. war.
