I don't even want to talk about the game. That's partly because I already wrote the Team Canada postgame piece earlier and it's also New Years Eve and such, but mostly because all I want to talk about is Phil Kessel. Sweet Baby Phil, scoring all those goals. He's the best.

Sorry, but if you were doing anything earlier this evening other than watching Team Canada vs. Team USA, you missed out big. In one of the most exciting hockey games I've seen in a while, the Canadians and Americans traded chances right up until the final buzzer, with Canada ultimately coming out on top by a score of 5-3.

Leo Komarov and Jonathan Bernier should make their return to the lineup tonight as the Leafs continue this nightmare of a road trip into Boston.
It'll be the third time the teams meet this season, after splitting the previous two outings. The Leafs were embarrassed at home in October before dumping the Bruins in November, the latter of which was arguably their best effort of the entire season.

Today is the round robin match that everyone has been waiting for. Team Canada vs. Team Our Parents Immigrated from Canada. As a child of the 80s it seems odd to consider the US as Canada's chief hockey rival, but I can no longer trap myself in 1987 and continue to believe that the Russians are the greatest test for Canada.
This game preview could take the high road and talk about how great the US National Team Development Program is, and how I wish that Hockey Canada had something resembling anything close to that. We could talk about how this game could be a gold medal preview and features the two undefeated teams from Group A and a victory has the high stakes of a much easier path to the medal round, though losing to the Swiss or the Czechs would be unlikely for either of these teams.

Hey guys welcome to my column, the only column that is mine.
Normally I post on Mondays, but yesterday was a busy day on the site and I want lots of attention for my columns so I am posting it today. Bask in it please.
This is also my first column in a few weeks. I know that disappointed a lot of you, and I am sorry. I need to show more compete and fight through to get these columns done. Not a lot of room out there, gotta fight for my space on the internet.
