It was a great game, and I'm glad that Canada won...I think they would have gladly traded every other medal they won during the olympics for the gold in hockey.  However, I still don't understand how the tournament was set up.  In most double elimination tournaments, Canada would have had to beat the US in two consecutive games to claim gold since the US didn't have a loss going into the final.  Or, Canada would have been in the losers bracket after the first loss, competing for Bronze, as the only two undefeated teams going into the final would get gold and silver.  I know Canada had to play an extra game because of the loss, but it still seemed like a funny set-up.  In any case, it was cool to see the celebrations in the streets...you definitely wouldn't have seen that anywhere in the US had we won.
