Thursday Morning Skate: A Team So Great, It Doesn't Need to Win

We could really do with a good old fashioned dream-crushing today.

USA takes on Finland today at 11:30am.

IIHF games:

  • 6:00am Canada vs. Slovakia, NBCSports
  • 8:30am Russia vs. Norway, NBCSports
  • 11:30am USA vs. Finland, NBCSports
  • 2:00pm Sweden vs. Czech Republic, NBCSports

Yep, all games are broadcast live!

And then at night,

Might be a good day to play hookie, wake up at 6am, and watch hockey all day long. NOT THAT I WOULD, mind.

Highlight of the night:


This went on for like 10 minutes. Madison Square Garden is such a dump. This is the part where a new yorker goes "only in new york!" like that makes it okay that it's terrible. I think my regional bias is showing, whoops.

What's your excuse for taking the day off to watch hockey?
