France Stuns Canada In IIHF World Championship

Team Canada's world hockey championship is off to a rough start after a stunning 3-2 shootout loss to France.

Even though it took a shootout, the defeat at Chizhovka-Arena stands out as one of Canada's more embarrassing losses in recent history at this tournament. It's just the second time Canada lost to France, the last coming in regulation in 1995.

It was the refs fault.

We were jet lagged.

It's all a conspiracy.

<insert more excuses nooooooooow>


Kudos to France, they played a great game - which we obviously need to do!

Indeed. Kudos to any teams that keep the score so close that a shootout is required. Makes for good hockey!!

Too bad, though when it comes down the the chance involved in just one shot. Could so easily go either way.

"But Tippett and France coach Dave Henderson each called the shootout a "lottery," somewhat dismissing it as an element of the game that can go either way."

You're correct, if the USA lost I would not have started a thread about France beating Canada. Strange, Eh??

You guys love to shove it in everybody's face when you win, so you better be ready to suck it up when you lose to France.

You guys are so arrogant when it comes to hockey, are you really surprised the entire hockey world laughed and cheered at the result??

meanwhile, an American breaks a record in the NHL...

John Gibson had the look of a kid who could have just as well been anywhere else in the world but at Staples Center before his first-ever NHL playoff game.

"I've never seen a goalie like him, really," Cogliano said. "He's really calm. Before the game, it looked like he was getting ready for a preseason game.

And then he goes out at 20 years, 330 days old and becomes the youngest goalie in NHL history to record a shutout in his playoff debut and the youngest to win a playoff game since Montreal Canadiens star Carey Price did back in 2008, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

No one would have started a thread about the world hockey prelims when the NHL Playoffs are in full swing. Unfortunately for us, the Red Wings got creamed in the first round and the American's performed poorly in the Olympics.(therefore this thread is created) This tourney is nothing more than a money grab.
