Nash takes Vancouver, Game 2
Four years to the day after being upset by Team Switzerland, Team Canada faced their fears and came out victorious with a 3-2 shootout win over the Makers of Fine Timepieces.
Rick Nash again looked massive out there on the ice. I'm starting to think that, at least in part, it's because Babcock has Nash crashing the net more than he does in the NHL. When you're out on the wings all the time, people can't see your size.
While the scoring isn't coming (which pretty much screws me in the DBJ Rick Nash Olympic Scoring Contest), it's clear that the Team Canada coaches see something special in Rick Nash as they have him on the ice in all circumstances...and he's clearly got the green light to score at will. Now, if he can just find the back of the net!
