NHL Lockout: who cares? Canada just won gold!

Many Canadians remember exactly where they were when Canada won the gold medal in men’s hockey at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. But just in case anyone forgot, TSN rebroadcast the gold-medal game against the U.S.A.

The NHL may still be in lockout mode, but Canada’s overtime triumph shows that there’s always something worthwhile to watch for hockey fans north of the border. Again and again.

With Canada up 2-1 with just minutes to play, the whole nation waited with bated breath. Then heartbreak…

The Americans tied up the game to send it to overtime, but that only set things up for the most epic of finishes. Akin to memories of Paul Henderson scoring in the final moments against Russia in the 1972 Summit Series, many Canadians remember exactly where they were when Sydney Crosby scored the gold-medal winner.
Ahh, Crosby scores! Where were you? I was hiding under the sheets of my bed with some of the highest anxiety I’ve ever felt.Amanda Stein
Crosby Scores!!!!! Ohh my I remember running around and jumping up and down! #tsnrewind #gocanadaMichaela Brunton
I remember where I was for Crosby’s golden goal in 2010: at a bar in Victoria and there was absolute hysteria at that moment. #tsnrewindRemo Zaccagna
Watching gold medal hockey re-run on tsn. Remember the bar going insane when Crosby scored. #NeedMyFix #GoCanadaGoAlex Lehr
And sure, everyone remembers Sidney Crosby scored, but in that didn’t stop the overtime predictions coming in.

Love that TSN pointed out that Crosby yelled "Iggy" to get the puck before scoring the Golden goal. Best players want/demand the puck.Sheldon Keefe

NHL lockout? Who cares: Canada just won gold!

  1. I gave up on hockey years ago. It now makes heroes out of goons and pays them obscene salaries (salaries which WE pay though advertising and CBC taxes)

  2. This is the dumbest thing I’ve read in a long time. Come on Maclean’s, you can do better.
