Yep. Drama and stupidity. After having to go through a dozen of those stupid Oreo cookie tweets this morning, I decided to stop following Rossi.

Been that way a lot of the tournament. Not sure why. He's on the bench though.

I haven't much of them, but that's strange to me if he's not hurt.

Lundy playing well. Sweden getting dominated.

Attaboy, Sid. He's been lights out the last 2 games, and there's a stat to back it up.

Canada should be happy with Kunitz after sacrificing his face for a power play.

I remember him playing the first game, him and Kharlson where just deadly, than I think he has been benched for some reason, it will come out after the tourney

Would have been interesting if Zetterberg or Backstrom were in, game was over before it started.

Karlsson is doing his best Letang impersonation out there... odd man rushes all day for the Canadians against him.

Wow, reading tweets about Kunitz on twitter makes me sad for Canada.

So many people looking for an imaginary scapegoat for not blowing out teams in the Olympics.

Nash, Vlasic, Bergeron, Pietrangelo, Perry, Bouwmeester, Toews, Marleau, Keith - All (prior to today's game) had a total of 0 goals. Why is it worse for Kunitz to have 0 goals than Nash or Toews?

He's getting a regular shift. Out of desperation I guess. Or maybe the Swedish coach saw enough Ericsson turnovers to give OEL a chance.

"It's not worth winning if you don't WIN BIG!"

I find it entertaining to read. Kunitz has been fine generally. He and Bergeron ( and Sid to a lesser extent) just haven't buried some good chances. Otherwise, that line has been pretty dominant.
