Mike Hurley of CBS Boston joins me to talk about Team USA’s disappointing finish in Sochi and why Gary Bettman and the NHL would be making a mistake to not allow players to compete in future Olympics.
Team USA was dominated by Canada in the semifinals and the chance to end the goal-medal drought will have to wait another four years.
I was worried that Team USA drew the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals, but it turned out there was nothing to worry about with this Team USA against that Czech Republic team.
Mike Miccoli of The Hockey Writers and New England Hockey Journal joins me to talk about Team USA’s dominant win over Slovakia and rooting for players in the Olympics you don’t usually root for.
Team USA started their quest for the gold medal with a 7-1 win over Slovakia in a game that actually had me nervous past the first period.
