Rumor has it that Putin was seen tampering with the HVAC system to give Pavel a “wind” assist on that play.

Yeah, still don’t want it. Pacioretty created the dynamic with the bad penalty, which severly changed the momentum.

Not sure if you’re the internet police, but, that’s my sign-off on every single comment since 2008.

Here’s a clue, mind your own business.

Recently read somewhere that Olczyk was quoted as saying he would like to coach again.

One can only dream!!...perhaps he could take McGuire to be one of his assistants too

Can’t take bad penalties, they will eat us up.

As far as I can tell from watching, looks as if Datsyuk can’t pivot much on his left foot.

For the record, I think the penalties on Paccioretty and .20 were both bullshit

My first take on the US team was not enough play making centers, but I now think their blue line is good enough that they can win it all.
