Boy, watching that 4-0 lead I couldn't help but think of the year the Russians were down and swapped Medvedev (Fatvedev) in net and then won the game.

Team Canada wasn't pretty to watch this year, but they got the job done, and thats what counts. Threepeat baby!

When they scored to make it 4-2, I was thinking uh-oh, don't blow it. We've seen this before.
