Once Again, Canada vs, USA Tonight

from Rob Longley at the National Post,

How long can the pain of one crushing loss linger and how empowering can the result be for the winners of the greatest women’s hockey game ever played?

Four years after Canada ripped out the hearts of their archrival Americans in deliciously dramatic fashion, we’re about to find out.

Four years after that showdown in Sochi, the two superpowers of their sport will meet again for gold at the Gangneung Hockey Arena on Thursday afternoon (11:10 p.m. ET/8:10 p.m. PT on Wednesday in Canada).

Given a chance for full revenge only returns every 48 months in this sport, forgetting the robbery in Russia might be easier said than done for the Americans.

“They know how important it is to put that stuff in the past, to learn from experience and draw from it,” American coach Robb Stauber said of his players approach. “We’re not talking about it. We’re in South Korea and it’s 2018 and we want a different result.”

I will have an open post up for the game.

Especially considering that I’m thinking about getting up at 5 to see USA-Canada in the men’s curling semifinal.
