The Americans have home ice advantage of course...
But I figure the Russians will be inspired after being pissed off about all the suspected injustices they have had to deal with.

We win on an OT goal or in a shoot-out
then the US demand a replay as they say as its on US soil and the crowd wants them in final ..pfffffffffff
Hopefully the referee is unbiased then we stand a better chance

Hopefully Russia, but I'm not counting out a petulant American DQ of the whole Russian team for daring to play better than the home town boys. :rolleyes:

Not even worth watching... Having home ice and home ref advantage will get converted into some goals anyway..
TBE, Canadian ref unbiased? Right, like all Canadian judges at these Olympics..

"Well, Becca, it`s up to Canadian refery "
Lets see - who would Canada rather play in the finals (assuming we can beat Belarus of course) - Russia, or the USA?
I have a sneaking suspicion that if the Canadian referee is going to exibit bias, it will be towards the US.
And of course some Canadian judges or refs have exhibited bias- not unlike Russian ones ys.
Now can we stop this "your country is full of more corrupt cheaters than my conty ' garbage?
its getting stupid.

u Russian crybabies--its hard to be biased against a puck crossing the red line...and bad referring?? I argue that nearly every single hockey match (which is well into the thousands) I have seen...and not to mention my run-ins with them:angel:
