I was at the WJ game when Canada beat Slovakia to go on to the Gold Medal game. Godla was in net for the Slovaks and Canada just shellacked him in shots and won 5-1. He kept them in it all game, but for some reason they gave the Player of the Game to a defenceman. All us Canadian fans stood and chanted Goalie! Goalie! Goalie! It was one of the coolest moments I've experienced as a fan.
Awesome on Bellemare.

“I’m not gonna take it easy on anyone,” Gudas said. “We’re in different jerseys right now…We’re gonna laugh about it after for sure.”
