U.S lost 5-4 in a shootout. Grahame didn't allow a goal until the fifth Finland shooter (Lehtinen), but none of the U.S shooters scored.

Yep he was playing, he almost scored in overtime with one of those afterburner moves he does.

Wow this makes me so mad, way to ruin my day. Even though the braves are winning their series and the sens will beat the slugs today, this really ruins my mood. And I'm not gonna be pulling for Canada but I will be pulling for the canes players on the canadian team.

I think its stupid to have a tournament like this end in a SO. But I don't make the rules.

USA played very well today. Battled back from playing behind all game. Cole was the Captain today as Chris Clark was out :)

What makes this even worse is that Kessel and Parise got to shoot twice in the SO. Now if they missed the first time, why put them out for a second chance. I'm sure there were other guys that could have tried, like Cole.

Sucks that this is how they get eliminated, but they played one hell of a game and Finland is a very good team.

I only watched the shootout part of the game b/c i was at school. WHY DID THEY NOT LET COLE BE IN THE SHOOT OUT. I am soo mad.. they let Parise go twice and Kessel.. and parice did a backhand and he missed, then he did the backhand the second and he misses, AGAIN. Cole could have done better that.. or someone else but i dont see why you'd pick the same guys twice..

Either flicked the puck over the glass (which he's been known to do), or left the trapezoid behind the net.

There is no trapezoid behind the net rule in worlds.. he flicked the puck over the glass(i think.. i missed the first minute of the game.. so i didnt see it.)

Ooops

Shows what I know. Ward's got to watch that though. I'm glad he's learning to play the puck like Grahame, but he does have a knack of flicking it out of play.

Cam and Staal are getting good press on the Canadian Message Boards at www.ihwc.net. Canadian posters were thrilled with both performances yesterday. Let's keep our fingers crossed our Canes play well today for the gold.

BTW, Hutch did quite well for the American team. Several goals / assists.
