I waited all days on pins and needles for the game against Russia. Nothing. No goals. Only a really really dumb penalty by Bertuzzi to lead to Ovechkins goal. Sure Brodeur stood on his head, but the tandem points of the sport are to A) prevent the opposition from scoring while B) scoring on the opposition. After being held scoreless for 8 of their last nine periods Canada went ahead and brought… nothing really. If only Brodeur had more of a slapshot we might still be in this thing. But one player out of 23 playing well does not a team make, nor does it a gold medal earn.
