Why not?  I hear that 5 minutes of Wings talk is like a 30 minute cardio workout.

I thought it was like smoking and drinking, that 5 minutes of Wings talk takes about 50 minutes off your life.

Posted by Hootinani on 02/19/14 at 01:55 PM ET

He got checked hard into the boards in the first on a scoring drive and it looked like he hurt his arm or shoulder ... haven’t seen a replay in a while or heard commentary about why he’s out though, so I’m probably wrong.

Is there a delay in CAN v. LAT? ESPN’s box score has been stuck at 18:44 for more than 10 minutes even though the US v. CZ game continues to count down.

They can show it on the big screen, but they cant review it.  Makes perfect sense.

No, but all of Canada is going to have a conniption.  Latvian defenseman just pulled a puck back over the line: no goal.

Yep, zebra suckage there. Canada should have been awarded a penalty shot, but that’s not reviewable after the fact.

Is the rule that he can’t close his hand on the puck—cause I don’t think he did—or that he can’t touch it with his hand at all?

67.4 Penalty Shot - If a defending player, except a goalkeeper, while play is in progress, falls on the puck, holds the puck, picks up the puck, or gathers the puck into his body or hands from the ice in the goal crease area, the play shall be stopped immediately and a penalty shot shall be awarded to the non-offending team.

Latvian goalie dying from overexertion.

Latvia with an amazing effort to hang in there with the big boys, but Canada’s defense wins the day again.

That link said the two semifinal games (games 27& 28) are on 21.02.2014, which I think is February 21, 2014 in eurospeak

You’re totally right. Sorry about that. On the IIHF I didn’t realize men’s and women’s were lumped into the same “widget” and that a red line below games meant “Ladies Only” versus “Gents”. Just read the Canada v. USA and ran with it.
