Excellent effort today by the Americans in their OT defeat of Asia's top nation. :nar:

They beat some other team in OT.... Who was that again? Ummm. They're supposed to be the best North American team.... Please remind me.

Amazing how quickly these games go by. 2 hours and the whole game is over. From the buzzer to end a period & the faceoff to start the next is 12 minutes! And they have a bigger ice surface to clean. 3 Zambonis used? Or are they wider?

But the play seems to go uninterrupted for longer times. Does the wider surface help avoid offsides? I haven't seen many of them at all.

Some strange rules though. If your helmet comes off you have to get to the bench.

Slovaks everywhere thank Ryan Getlaf for this unkneeded hit:

Slovaks advance, breaking the tie 5 seconds into the ensuing 5 minute major.
My favorite part of the above video- the playing of Judas Priest's "Breaking the Law" in the background when Getzlaf goes into the box.

US ousted 3-2 by Finland,who they'd beaten 5-0 earlier in the week. Isles property, and exile, Jesse Joensuu had 2 goals for Finland, including the winner with 9 seconds to go. :chairshot:
