An outstanding hockey game

Going in to last night's game against Team Canada, the USA hockey team looked like a sure underdog.  The Canadian team is loaded with NHL stars - including Sidney Crosby, Jerome Iginla, and three Sharks from the same line (Heatley, Marleau and Thornton!).  And the USA team, even though it has some really good players, is pretty young.
