Patrick Kane had a frustrating night and the United States didn’t show up as Finland rolled the Americans to capture the bronze medal.
To say the US soiled the bed would be putting their performance lightly. Teemu Selanne played an excellent game and got some help from a determined roster around him, but the US team was flat the entire game.
Kane was granted two penalty shots in the game, and missed on both. He also took two frustration penalties later in the game, but certainly wasn’t alone in his disappointment. After losing 1-0 to Canada on Friday, the US was dominated in every part of the game and will come home empty handed.
Finland’s Tuukka Rask earned the shutout.
Six Chicago Blackhawks play for gold on Sunday. Hopefully Hawks fans feel better about that performance than they do about Saturday’s debacle.
