    Default WOW!!!!!!!!

    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.

    Aristotle, why are you always trying to find things to bash Canada? If it was any other team besides Canada, this thread would not exist. Definitely if it was USA that lost, this thread would not have been started. Not by you anyway.

    "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."

    Looks like those who know a little bit about hockey agree with me.

    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??

    The coaches are trying to make excuses to cover up the fact they will go down in Canadian hockey history as the guys behind the bench for one of the most embarrassing losses in Canadian hockey history ...that's really shocking

    strange, Canadians find the shootout distasteful when they lose, but are quite quiet about it all if they win in a shootout.

    The fact it even went to a shoot out is unbelievable

    No! I think it is you who loves to shove it in Canada's face when the Canadian teams lose, EH???

    Arrogant??? Canadians are arrogant??? If we are arrogant, then what are you???

    You really believe the entire world laughed and cheered at the result? Such mature sportsmanship if that is the case! Why are you getting so full of anger? Be happy! Canada lost! But Canada still won GOLD at the Olympics!

    Hmmm. Yer lookin' a little silly here, and showing us all that you really didn't read the article, just wanted to attack Canada.

    The FRENCH coach was one of the guys who called a shootout a lottery!!!

    If you don't think the rest of the hockey world rejoiced at the French win, then you level of self-delusion is beyond repair.
