Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Canadian Way

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail at CTVOlympics,

On this improbable night of hockey, as Canada rolled to a lopsided 7-3 victory over a star-studded Russian team, Corey Perry was talking about what constitutes Canadian hockey at its very best.

“That was it,” said Perry. “Physical play, grinding, cycling, forechecking - that’s what we did tonight and that’s what wore them down.”

In one of the most hyped, heralded and anticipated hockey games in history, Canada unleashed a devastating first-period attack Wednesday night to crush Russia, the defending world champions and in some people’s minds, the gold-medal favorite, in a men’s Olympic hockey quarter-final game.
