The rematch everyone wanted to see (especially NBC) has materialized just not in the Gold medal match but in the semifinals. Team Canada is the favorite but they are struggling to score while the USA has scored the most goals in the tournament.
Patrick Sharp not Jonathan Toews is the only Blackhawk player on Team Canada to score, and that has been one of the issues for Team Canada not getting the production it expected from its superstar forwards, but that all could change today in Sochi.
The USA has given up some goals although Jonathan Quick and Ryan Miller have been excellent, but it doesn’t matter when you are putting puck after puck into the back of the net.
All of the previous games can be thrown out the window now and even the T.J. Oshie heroics against Russia will not seem as important if the USA doesn’t advance to the Gold Medal match and enact some revenge for the Sidney Crosby OT winner in OT at the Vancouver Games in 2010! It’s Patrick Kane Vs Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, and Patrick Sharp! Let’s get this on!
