GO USA, Then Back To Playoff Talk

from Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press,

Time will come to a halt at 3:15 p.m. today. Those Americans who can apply the entirety of their hockey knowledge on the tip of a pencil will watch, root and celebrate should the U.S. rob Canada of its hockey birthright. I hope it’s a competitive game. It’ll be a big deal should the U.S. win, but it won’t come close to matching the exhilaration of 30 years ago and won’t ignite a spontaneous explosion of national pride.

How can it, with players returning to their respective NHL teams Monday as the league resumes after a two-week Olympic sabbatical? It’ll be largely forgotten in a matter of days, because the Stanley Cup playoff points chase starts in earnest—especially in Detroit.

Let’s hope the Americans shock the Canadians again. And if we’re still talking about it in another week, then perhaps that’s the Miracle.
