Gold, and So Much More
Theo Fleury
Canada won its first men's hockey gold since 1952.
 
It was an unprecedented display of talent assembled on an international stage, and yet, it isn't a given that NHL players will return in the 2006 Games in Turin? The Games gave fans one of the biggest upsets in Olympic history, one United States men's team that couldn't repeat the "Miracle" and one Canadian team that ended 50 years of frustration with gold.

Women's Rivalry Gets More Bite
Both teams were on a crash course before the Salt Lake City Games even began. And despite the predictability of an United States-Canada gold-medal game, it did not disappoint. The Americans had their 35-game winning streak snapped by the Canadians, who avenged their final loss in Nagano.

WITH GEORGE JOHNSON
Whether Wayne Gretzky's outburst was merely an emotional release of pent-up frustration or a ploy to divert pressure away from his players with the quarterfinals upon them is still unclear. What's inarguable now is that it's up to the Canadian players, over $120 million (in U.S. funds, no less!) in talent, to step up to the plate.


Adelson: What should have been?
While Belarus exceeded its expectations, the Russians were falling short of theirs.
 
Hradek: An 'eerie meeting'
Friday's Russia-USA 'Miracle on Ice' rematch is a hockey happening plenty of folks want to see.
 
Adelson: Not Mezin's day
Poor Andrei Mezin. The Belarus goalie knew this wasn't his day when Theoren Fleury rang one off his mask just after the opening face-off.
 
Johnson: Some teams get all the breaks
Suddenly, Team Canada has gone from the goat of the tournament back to the gold-medal favorite.
