Team Canada v Team USA (L 3-5)

What an upset! I don't know about you guys, but I was truly stunned. Team Canada is a veritable who's who of the very best hockey players on this entire planet, but somehow (read: because of the goaltending at both ends), a youthful Team USA was able to pull off the improbable victory. American Ryan Miller was outstanding in goal, while Canadian Martin Brodeur did not even come close to performing to his best ability. I'm not sure what Head Coach Mike Babcock was thinking... Roberto Luongo was, prior to the Olympics, the best of the three Canadian goalies (sorry, Flower!). He should have been in between the pipes for this match-up. I was shocked when I saw that he wasn't.

Note to Sid: THIS is what it feels like when Brooksie is on the opposing team...

However, hindsight is always 20/20, and Team Canada still has some work to do. Here are some of the best photos from last night:

Team Canada is back in action tomorrow in a Playoff Qualifier against Team Germany.

GO TEAM CANADA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
