It was a devastating way to end the week, but Canada suffered a loss of 5-3 to the U.S. in Olympic hockey action at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games on Sunday. Calls for Team Canada’s goaltender Martin Brodeur to be pulled were echoing in Facebook status updates and Twitter feeds most of the night.
The rowdy Canadian fan with the red beacon light on his helmet was in attendance again, but the doppelganger for ‘Bubbles’ from “Trailer Park Boys” couldn’t rally enough for our boys to get the job done.
Sidney Crosby told media in a post-game interview Sunday: “It’s tough, it’s not the scenario that we wanted for sure. I thought our desperation was there, we worked hard, but it was one game, a lot can happen, they’re a good team, and unfortunately we didn’t win. We had some bad bounces, and in one game those make a big difference, and unfortunately it didn’t go our way. But if we play hard like that, we play desperate like that and control the puck the way we did down low, I like our chances against any team.” (via Olympic.ca)
The loss forces Canada to play an extra game Tuesday before another round on the ice Wednesday.
