Not at all. Getzlaf changed direction and changed the position of his leg before contact. I thought it was pretty cut and dry.

I saw the guy jump back to avoid the hit....there was knee on knee contact, but I don't think that was Getzlaf's intent.

Well, that's that. Finland scores with 8 seconds left. USA looked like the Pens in the last 10 minutes. Puketrid defense.

Yeah, you're right, I was just trying to give them a little more credit than they deserved. The whole third was bad.

As soon as we got that 2-1 lead, you could see us go into that damn prevent defense shell. And as we know, the prevent defense prevents you from winning. Brutal loss, especially with the goal coming with 8 seconds left.

Geno scores two, then leaves the game with a possible elbow injury.

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

Let's hope it's nothing serious.

Edit: He's back.

... and gets the hattrick.

Would folks be talking if Sid was at the WC and was doing great after his poor showing against the flyers?
Never, and twice not on sundays.
Go Gene!

Evgeni Malkin is going to become the only player since Wayne Gretzky (1982) to win the Art Ross and WC scoring title in the same year.

Yes I think you are. Like someone else said.. would anyone be upset if this was Sid was tearing it up in the WC? No .. no one would say a friggin negative word about it.

nobody is going to shut down Geno in the friggin world championships the same way as in the Stanley Cup playoffs. these games are just an extension of the roll he's been on this year, not some "rising up and wanting it more" thing.

4-1 Russia after 2 periods, no points for Geno. Dude never shows up when it really matters.

8-) I thought he got an assist on the 1 goal. It's fun watching Gene again before hockey goes dark.
