Growing up & being a Red Wings fan I find myself cheering for all these players for Team USA I usually "hate." What the Olympics does to you!

I remember in 2010 cursing Canada's head coach. But it was a good kind of curse! [] If that makes sense.

Kind of a neat shootout format.

Another big win for Team USA today, hope they keep it going!

I thought the USA Russia game was one of the best games I have ever watched. Very intense game almost seemed as if they were playing for gold. Even Ovechkin played a little defense!

How do you guys see the medal rounds playing out? I think the US should be able to get by the Czek/Slovak winner. But then it'd be on to Canada in the semifinal. That game will be ridiculous and even unfortunate that it is not for the Gold medal. But we do have a shot at winning these and making these Olympics very special.

I could be wrong, but I just don't see Russia winning gold. Not even sure they'll get there. The Swedes are long-time giant killers.

Russia hasn't looked all that great. I wouldn't be surprised if they lost to Finland in the Quarters.

In women's hockey, Canada wins gold, Switzerland bronze and the U.S. gets the "U.S./Canada participation medal"...

USA Women's hockey team blows a 2-0 lead in the final 3:30 of regulation in the gold medal game vs Canada and end up losing to the Canuks 3-2 in overtime on a 4 on 3 power-play goal.

USA missed an open-net opportunity, which hit off the left post, with 1:25 remaining in regulation, which would given them a 3-1 lead.

Nothing wrong with winning Silver and Bronze.

The US hockey team packed it in after the loss yesterday. Finland is embarrassing them in the bronze medal game.

It's unfortunate to go out the way we did, especially after how well we played up until the last two days. But this is a team that everyone could tell was on a gold medal or bust mentality. Now that doesn't give them an excuse for not showing up today but that is the reason. They had a lack of motivation and interest in playing that game today as everyone could tell.

With that said, I'm still proud of the tournament as a whole. We played some great hockey. That game against Russia was an instant classic! There are many parts to be proud of. Quick earned his stripes in this tournament and kept our team alive time and time again. I'm proud of US hockey and can't wait to get back at it in 4 years.
