U.S. 5 Canada 3...Take that you hosers!

Take that eh? hosers. A sign at Canada Hockey Place read, “This is our game.” But the U.S. came into Canada's home rink and stole it.

The win was the first for the U.S. over Canada since 1960 in Squaw Valley when they won gold and it means the Americans will get a bye in the first round of the medal playoffs.

It was fun to watch and it's fun to rip on the Canucks..... but it really isn’t that huge of an upset like the media would like you to believe. Trust me...Canada wanted it badly though. The U.S. was outshoot 2-1, but couldn't dent Miller. There is a lack of chemistry on these teams since there is zero practice time, so whoever gets the hot goalie play can usually ride that.

They've got a kick ass fight song....but it didn't do them much good.

Impressive win for the USA last night! I have to admit that I didn’t think they would win, partly due to the fact they hadn’t defeated Canada in half a century. I am glad they did though. I hope this win gives them confidence that they can beat any team and win Olympic gold!
