Miracle on Ice - the sequel. US decline continues.....

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

The US let this one slip through their fingers. Couldn't fend off the last minute attack which tied the game and then clearly had no plan for the 3-on-3 overtime. The shootouts then tend to be a coin flip. Too bad.

Tough one. I'm going to guess over-confidence (who'd have thought Slovakia would take them out... besides maybe Slovakians), and then just the bad luck of losing once in the knock-out stage. Very good for the Slovakians, though!

The U.S. was eliminated in a shootout in the quarterfinals for the second consecutive Olympics lacking NHL players.

That's what happens with youngsters - they tend not to have the killer instinct yet to kill off a game

Youthful exuberance doesn't replace experience

Think about that next time ya don't want NHL professionals

The European teams are made up of professionals

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Well done, Slovakia.
