USA Vs. Finland Game Thread: Discuss America's Quest For Gold With Other Fans

From today's Olympic Hockey preview:

Today's game will be broadcast live on NBC in all four time zones. The puck drops at 3 PM ET / 12 PM PT. NBCOlympics.com has a stream if you're stuck at work.

Everybody wants it to happen, a gold medal game between Canada and the United States. It's this... close... to happening, too, but if the Americans over look a very, very strong Finland team, they'll be playing for bronze tomorrow night instead of gold on Sunday.

The US team has won all four games they've played in these Olympics, but none of that matters as of now. If they lose today, their shot at gold is gone. The Finns, meanwhile, have been through this before. They played for gold in 2006 in Torino before losing to Sweden and taking home silver. You can be sure they'll be hungrier this time around, knowing how close they were last time. Many of the '06 silver medalists are still playing on the team in these Olympics.

One more game, one more win and you're playing for the gold medal.
