Kind of a bummer game today at 10 a.m. USA vs. Finland for the bronze, 34 years to the day after the Miracle on Ice in Lake Placid.
Of course, the loser goes home with nothing, so I imagine the athletes will play it as if it’s a big game, though it’s got to be terribly difficult after losing the semifinals yesterday, especially for the USA losing to Canada.
So it will be interesting to see how the Americans play it.
I know you guys sure don’t want any of your Rangers getting in front of shots or near the walls or anywhere in harm’s way. I don’t think it’s in Ryan Callahan’s or Ryan McDonagh’s DNA to not play that way, though.
Tomorrow, of course, is the gold medal game. Tomorrow night, at midnight, the NHL’s Olympic roster freeze is over, and then the Callahan dilemma resumes. And then it’s back to the NHL playoff races.
