On Sunday February 28, 2010, there will be a rematch of epic proportions at GM Place. this will be a day that will live in infamy. Either the Canadians will go home proud, or they will be sent home disappointed. Either the Americans will pull of another win on this Olympics, or they will be cast aside. This will be a monumental match up. To most North Americans, this is THE rivalry in hockey. 

This game will be played with such heart on both sides. The Canadians will be playing for redemption. The Americans will be playing for one of the biggest upsets on Olympic ice ever. 

The Canadian fans will be louder than ever. This much is for sure.

The game will not be won by the skaters, but by the goalies. It is going to be up to Luongo and Miller to who wins this game. Whoever shows up for their team, wins. Both have been white hot in these games. However, should one of them slip up, they will cost their team the gold. All it takes is one mistake. 

This will be a mammoth match up. The whole entire hockey world will stop just for this one game, as will all of Canada. Who will it be? The Canadians fulfilling their countrymen's hopes or will it be the Americans pulling another gold medal out of no where? This will surely be a game for the ages.
