Alrighty, after today’s start to the only real sport in these 2010 winter Olympics (kidding…) I am beyond excited to see how the US can handle itself after a pretty decent win against the Swiss today, 3-1. Pat Kane looked pretty nasty with his usual nonchalant dangles cruising around the board before consistently finding his line-mates for the open shot. The goaltending looks pretty solid with the US having arguably the soundest net-minder in the world, Ryan Miller.
On the other hand, the Canucks from the north looked unreal tonight, but were clearly playing a lesser opponent in Norway. Nonetheless, a line of Iginla, Crosby, and Nash is unheard of and they are also backed by a solid tender, Marty Brodeur.
The US men will face Norway on Thursday, so we should be able to get a bit of a look at how we compare to the hosers from the NORD.
