So I turned to my wife and said "Hey look, a team with a maple leaf on its sweater up 4-1 in an elimination game...". Then she hit me. Then Canada scored. "Uh-huh" she said. I replied "Just wait...."

Thankfully I was wrong but it was a close one. Hats off to those Russian kids, that game was a giant mess but damn it was fun.

Here's some links, then back to the Maple Leafs grind.

Man that's a tough way to come down from that high.
