Crappy ESPN coverage so far. Unless I missed it, no info on who is on each roster. No graphics to indicate who is currently on the ice. They said Team Europe has players from 8 countries and then don't tell us which countries.

It's pretty dead in here right now. Loudest fans are the Canadiens who are cheering aginst the USA. 

Are we supposed to hate the Canadien team? I dont. Might even buy a canadien hockey hat. 

Poured on us at the fan fest but was fun none the less. Kids had this pic taken of them

It's because Americans always misspell Canadian.

That was close to being offside. Thought the Americens might challenge it.

Those power plays were tough to watch.  The only chance I really liked was the Kane to Oshie one timer out front.  But I don't think that was on net either.  Brutal.

Still shocked they picked him. Such a clown.

Well then, it's good to know that even clowns stand for our national anthem.

Was watching a "documentary" on the '96 final; best-of-three between USA & Canada.  Forgot that the US had to play  the last two games in Canada, & win both.  Richter was insane; but it was great to see Yzerman (Red Wings fan here) to score the game-winner in Game 1.  Does that make me unpatriotic?

Apparently I don't have ESPN News but Watch ESPN has a "multicam" broadcast for each game which I'm watching. No commentating, which is nice if it's Levy again.

USA/Canada tilt should be interesting. 4-1 Canada is my prediction.

I loved torts complaining about the goal scoring while they left Tyler Johnson and Kessel off the roster. Idiot.

Unless TJohnson and Kessel were left off because they might be included in a major trade with Canada where the USA acquires Justin Trudeau, there's no excuse.

Maybe he shouldn't have sat Byfuglien.

Also, still odd that Justin Abdelkader is on this team.

They did not play one. The players chose to not have one

They say that USA was built to beat Canada.  I think the conclusion is that they took physical play over skill.  In other words, USA brass believes a team with PK and TJ probably can't beat Canada but a team with JA et al might be able to beat Canada.

He assisted. But you are right, looked awesome on that goal

Sorry, you're right. He just made the entire play and I'm way too excited to have hockey back.

4-3 now and such a cool game.

Team NA had the most gear sold as far as I could see and it wasnt even close. Great idea for a team.

Wife wants a drouin jersey but I can't find one on the website.

Kinda thinking that the NA jersey would be best if I had it signed and framed. So many great players where that could be a fun small investment and cool hanging.

Need to get MacKinnon and Nugent -Hopkins back out there - Mac screening in front of net has been effective - Nugent- Hopkins to clean up
