That's gonna be no goal, I think.

I'd be very interested to know why that first goal counted....

Because the net isn't off until the moorings pop out. The net cam showed pretty good that it was up and not out until the last second.

I didn't think the puck got over first, either, but that angle and explanation makes it a lot closer than from the top.

There's a lot of empty seats for a Team Canada game. 

They’ve over-saturated it having the tournament in North America damn near every year.

Apparently being lifted, even if the moorings are still in, is considered a dislodged net....

Yep, I was way wrong, so I dunno then.

At some point, organizers have to figure out that they can't charge premium ticket prices for this event.

I hope that's by next year. I might actually go see a game.

Something is going to have to give. Apparently the IIHF demands for hosting the tournament are outrageous.

Essentially the NA venues have to make up the loses the IIHF incurs every time they hold tournament in Europe.I can't see this year's being to profitable aside from another goofy outdoor game and the gold medal game.
