And divey mcdivesalot whiffs on the penalty shot, and possibly the most unlikeable Canadian team since I can't remember when goes out in the quarters. Woof.

Team Canada was outcoached, outprepared,  and outlucked in this Quarter-Final loss to Finland in OT 2-1.

Why Hunter chose Comtois to take the penalty shot is besides anyone, considering that Comtois' shot attempt seemed predictable.

Congrats to Team Finland on playing it smart and intuitively (particularly in the tying goal, and subsequently in OT).

Looks like the hockeygods weren't on Canada's side for this one.

A great superb performance from Team Canada goalkeepwe Michael DiPietro who faced 39 shots, while Finnish 'keeper Luukonen faces 30.

If you've ever wondered what the worst of humanity looks like, check out the people commenting on Max Comtois' instagram page.

edit: actually looks like he disabled comments so they're gone. But yeah, think Gardiner after game 7 but worse and directed at a teenager.

It was that broken stick that should really stand out, quickly taken advantage of by the Finnish offensive rush.

If the stick hadn't broken, it may very well have been a goal shooting from that angle, more surefire than even Comtois' penalty shot attempt.

Canada had it's chances but couldn't capitalize.  Blaming one player for the entire Team's ills seems misguided.

Obviously attacking a kid personally is straight up bullying and should not be done. However, being a professional comes with criticism and Comtois diving and embellishments are not qualities I would want from my captain. I should note he was not the only one flopping around out there. It was hard to watch and stomach at times.
