I think every Canadian Hockey fan had been waiting for this day since the Olympics schedule was announced. Super Sunday. Russia vs Czechs. Canada vs USA and Sweden vs Finland. We got downtown at about 2pm thinking that was plenty of time to get in somewhere to watch the game. Downtown was nuts. Huge line ups at pretty much every bar and restaurant. We thankfully got into Kinsgton Taphouse and Grille after about an hour wait but it was touch and go there for a bit.

The excitement could be felt throughout the bar. People were super stoked for this game. Too bad the result was not what we wanted. Miller was on fire in goal for the US and really we are still not playing that well as a team. With the loss, we now have to play tomorrow against Germany. A must win in order to move on to the quarter finals.

After the game, we walked down to Canada Hockey Place as we had tickets to the Sweden vs Finland game. Our tickets were for a suite on the 500 level. Pretty stellar view of the game.
Sweden dominated the game and it ended up being a shut out for Sweden. 3-0.
Sweden’s goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, stopped 32 shots for a shut out.
A huge day of hockey with not the results Canadians were wanting. Gold is 4 wins away. We can so do this!
