Goal! US!
They're overrated anyway. Not that shocking. Finland medaled in 2010

Haven't medaled in a while.

And they're headlined by one of most overrated NHL players.

All tied up between us and Czech.

The Russian should protest at the American embassy again. I'm sure it's our fault they lost to the Fins.

Yep, classic Ovechkin. Can't cut the mustard in big games.

Does anyone know how they put these teams in brackets? To me it just feels like bad business having Russia, USA, and Canada possibly playing each other in the semi finals rather than for the gold medal.

I think that Russia was in the other half of the draw from the US and Canada. I have no idea how they seed the teams

Had Russia advanced they would have played USA or Canada in the gold medal game.


Seed based of their round robin round.
You get 3 points for a win in regulation, 2 for OT/SO win, 1 for OT/SO loss, and 0 for a loss.

Sweden won all 3 games in regulation(9 points), they get the number 1 seed. USA went 2-1-0 (8 points) so did Canada, but we had the higher goal differential at +11.
We were the 2, Canada the 3, Finland the 4 with only 7 points.

1-4 had byes. Russia only had 6 points, gave them the 5 seed.

USA takes silver and bronze in women's bobsled. The first time the US has ever taken multiple medals!

no one but the game against Russia went to OT (actually to a shootout) so they only got 2 points instead of three.

That's not right at all as it actually goes W-L-OTL

But since we didn't win in regulation we only get 2 points.

We've been the most impressive team thus far. (Of everyone in the tournament)
I like our chances. Let's finish this one.
