USA 6 - Finland 1
I never thought I would be sick of hockey (and pretty much every other winter sport too) but here we are.
The first period was rather disgusting Finns looking like lost puppies who didn't know what to do nor why they were there. While they're professional and should be able to play no matter what, I think it's fair to blame the coach since it's his job to make sure that the game plan fits the team or vice verse and that the players are well prepared for the match. None of those happened yesterday. None of those actually happened during the whole tournament.
It pains me to say this but they deserve to lose the bronze game, Slovakia has fight throughthe whole Olympics in every single game to win them. If they go home without medal, it will be huge injustice.
I was not fan of the head coach when they hired him. I was not fan of him after the latest Worlds and I definitely didn't do happy dance after they announced the extension of his contract. If this humiliation wasn't enough to prove that he can't coach the national team, I don't know what will. Though this really doesn't matter since I quite litarelly can't watch hockey again anytime soon.
