This game can't end any sooner. Ice conditions are so bad, tons of ruts on the ice. And WTF that gap between the ice and the doors is huge, the stick that got stuck there nearly impaled our guy.
Baaaaaaaaa!

The weirdest part of the game was the OT being stopped halfway through. It's a freaking 5 minute period and they stop it halfway mid play...

Ya it caught me off guard too, but it's only fair to switch ends due to the terrible and uneven ice conditions.
Baaaaaaaaa!

switch on first stoppage after 2 minutes or something than, calling the play dead is brutal.

Didn't say it is? It's just a terrible rule to have.

it is. IIHF also doesn't believe in off-setting penalties

I didn't have any sound on for the commentary, did they explain anything about that? Cause if I had to guess, this was probably agreed upon by both teams that they would stop play at the halfway mark of the OT to switch ends. Blame the crappy outdoor conditions for having to do this.
Baaaaaaaaa!

Carter Hart is such a non clutch goalie.

Canada will get nowhere with this kid in net.

Can't see this Canada team winning the tournament this year. Funny how Ray Ferraro was explaining how the players need to shoot the puck rather than dangling in the shootout due to the poor conditions... US shot every chance they had while the Canadians got too fancy. Oh well.

Yep. Love the whole Vegas thing as well. They are going to make some noise in the playoffs.

Don't think they explained it, just said that's how it is. I would guess that the rule is set that way and that's the way it is.

What do they do for NHL outdoor games, can't recall if I have watched an overtime and what they did.
