So we meet again. Team USA and Team Canada meet Friday morning in the most anticipated match-up to-date in these Olympic Games. The winner advances to the Gold Medal Game while the loser is left to duke it out for bronze.
We all knew this was coming. We hoped these teams would meet in the gold medal game itself, just like the last Olympics, but Canada struggled in the qualifying rounds and was slapped with a lower seed. In-turn they also were granted a premature meeting with their brothers to the south.
It’s hard to say what’s exactly been wrong with Canada. Despite standing undefeated, they have struggled throughout these games while the US has seemingly excelled. The odds are evening out as the momentum of the US is catching the overall superior talent of Canada.
Friday’s game promises to be everything there is to love about hockey. If you haven’t been following Olympic hockey action - It’s not too late to start now.
