I actually was with a goalie from the U22 Canadian team and she said it'll be tough to top it without a doubt. Plenty of brawls, and 14 total goals scored!

Hey Hawk, my B's put up eight on you Savoir Faires. Eight!

Hockey is fun to watch live, but boring as hell on TV. It's just organized chaos and half the goals are luck. Not luck in terms of the shooter, but luck in terms of the goalie not being able to see the puck or get back to catch the ricochet that bounces out perfectly. Makes it tough for me when one player is so much more important than anyone else.

ya well...not often you score 6 and lose!!!

and luck? come on...you don't think those guys are busting their ass getting in front of the goalie and taking major damage while they do? As a big guy, trust me, it's hard work keeping that spot.

Yeah the guys that go to the net and sit are in the trenches. There's all kinds of cross checking and dirty stuff that goes on there that doesn't get called. I love watching hockey live or on tv. I would say more of the saves goalies make are from luck than actual goals. A goalie can make great saves just by being in the right position.
