not really! think about the disaster that was Torino...but still, second place could well feel like last when you're so close to first only to come up short. when the USA sent the it to OT yesterday with 25 secs left in the game, you had to think they might actually beat Canada twice in a week. that is, until you saw what 4-on-4 hockey vs Canada actually looked like, which is to say it looked like Ryan Miller was the target in target practice. too much talent and speed on the Canadian team, and it finally took its toll but not before the US pushed them to their limit (and you know that once Canada took a 2-0 lead they were thinking it might be easy...). great toughness shown by the USA team in the comeback, Ryan Miller deservedly MVP and congrats to Canada who collectively frankly couldn't have handled another loss to the US so soon after the last one!
