Having mixed feelings about last night's game, I figured Florida would win but I think that penalty call with less than a minute left in the period was ill advised.  What happened to not calling ticky tack penalties in a crucial game with little time left.  I think Carolina got hosed by the refs, it was unfair to do that.  I know that it was a legitimate call but the refs have discretion and I truly think it tarnishes the win (for me).  I just wish they hadn't called it.  :confused:

Canada - Latvia, 6:20am start...only for the strong.   :blaze:

It wasn't pretty, but Canada will play for gold against the hated Germans...I'll do the funny walk.  :chickendance:

What the hell happened to the US team?  That was not the result I expected :eh:.  On another note, damn Dallas won again so we go to Game 6

It felt like the Americans were just trying to hold on to the 3-2 lead and it backfired on them. The German team would've been even more troublesome with Draisaitl and Stutzle on the roster. Let's hope the Canadians can pull it off on Sunday.

Yikes, USA loses to Latvia for the bronze.  Geez, this is very sad to lose two in a row in overtime. Congrats to Latvia for their first medal in this tournament. :clap:

Great to see Poland finally back with the big boys next year. Of course, it's because of the Russia/Belarus ban, but still...   :chickendance:

At the IIHF 2023 Ice Hockey World Championships in Tampere, Helsinki, Finland, in the playoff semi-finals, Canada, had to play Latvia, and Canada, won 4-2.  In the other playoff semi-finals, U.S., had to play Germany, and Germany, won 4-3 in overtime.  In the final for the Gold medal, it was Canada, and Germany, and Canada, won 5-2.  For the Bronze medal, it was U.S., and Latvia, and Latvia, won 4-3 in overtime.  Before the Stanley Cup Playoffs started, and for the Stanley Cup Final, I didn't see it between Vegas, and Florida, and a lot of other people didn't, too.  I haven't wanted either one of them win it.

Not the teams I wanted in the Final but the winner will get a Stanley Cup for the first time.  Hope Vegas smacks Florida down, will the refs blow crucial calls (of course) and will Biz Nasty get his head shaved again?  Tune in to find out Saturday :laugh:

You've made up with the Knights then? I want the Panthers to win, not only because they're in the East, but also, I'd like to think Dale Tallon is partly responsible for this team's success, granted he had nothing to do with Tkachuk's arrival.

Yes, I think my biggest beef was with DeBoer and his treatment of Fleury. That made it easy for me to see Dallas go down.  Have learned a bit about Cassidy and think he is a good coach, been watching the Quest for the Cup series on ESPN+ and like some of things he said and just his demeanor with the players.  I agree that Tallon helped bring talent to Florida and it would be nice for him to get some credit for their success.  I just hope that if Florida wins, the refs don't try to help them so much.  I love cheering for the underdog and now Vegas is the underdog, even with Florida being one as well.  More sports reporters are picking Florida to win so I guess I just have to be contrary...:happy:

Saw the celebration in Lativa when the team returned home, huge crowds.  It was amazing to see so many people, glad they got to celebrate with their team.

Anyone watching the Memorial Cup?  I haven't ever followed it but the Quebec Remparts are coached by Patrick Roy.  Have seen some clips and it looks pretty good.  The Seattle Thunderbirds are taking part this year.  Guess the last round robin game is today then they start the semis on the 2nd

But they were advertising a betting site in Finland, where only one is allowed to do so, not the Latvian, obviously. The whole thing has been reported to the Finnish police.  :laugh:

There may be a loophole because underneath the name of the betting site, which was on the arms of the jerseys, there were the words 'Sports Bar'. Apparently, the firm also runs restaurants, and the Latvians can say that's what they were advertising, but who knows what kind of rules they have in Europe.

Those free shots to the head late in the third buried Panthers chances to get back in the game. Still, I think Florida has the advantage in net, Knights hold the D, and I'll give the forward edge to the DeSantis state. But overall, it'll come down to which team can better execute their system on the ice.

Kane had hip surgery. It's not a major operation but he probably will miss the start of the next season. 

Heard about that.  It was talked about a couple of years ago he had a nagging issue but hadn't decided to have surgery.  Guess he decided to go ahead since there is speculation he will be leaving NY.  Hope it helps him feel better so he can play for a few more years.
