Caps won't win the cup with their current goaltending.
Honestly, outside of maybe the first period last night was not Canada is awesome and better than Russia, it was Russia came out flat and their coach made a very poor decision to keep Nabakov in goal after he was absolutely pelted with shots in the first period and gave up a bunch of goals.
Frankly, Luongo looked sloppy and lost, and the Canadians got quite sloppy after they gained a lead.
Russia just completely sucked last night. Doesn't mean they have a crappy team, but they definitely had a bad game. And they got horrendous goaltending from Nabakov.
Oh, and add this to the collection of Sid vs. Ovechkin photos:
Hey sweet, a hockey thread. Penguin fan here! I was born in central Pennsylvania. I didn't really start following hockey until the 90's. Right when the Pens started winning.
I travel for my job a lot, so during hockey season I get to a bunch of games as I travel the country. I have been to about 10 different hockey arenas so far.
Currently, I have been making the 4-5 hour commute to watch the Olympic game. I have been to five so far.

What a fantastic Olympic tournament. I may actually tune in a game (is it game or match?) or two. I have been looking for something to tied me over between Football and march madness.
