Except that didn't happen. I won't do a lot of explaining, but let's just say that the Americans came to play in a big way that I'm not sure Canada ever expected.
Yikes. I will say congratulations to the American squad who laid an ass-whipping on the Canadians like no one expected. They took home the bronze medal after their setback the day earlier. The Finns, to their credit, went on to defeat the Swedes in the final where Jesse Puljujärvi had a whale of a game in helping Finland capture the gold medal.
Congratulations to the gold medalists in Finland, the silver medalists in Sweden, and the bronze medalists in USA on successful tournaments! For Canada, they'll return home where they'll lick their wounds after that severe beating they took, and it will be a chance for some of the young men of this country to prepare for the NHL Entry Draft!
Until then, let's hope that 10-3 beatdown doesn't haunt their dreams!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
