Last Kings Ousted In The Championships

(Team USA Roster)
Brownie is so freaking adorable! Sully looks like... a nerd.

Dustin Brown and Patrick O'Sullivan of the US were officially taken out of the IIHF World Championships on Wednesday, May 14th by Finland 3-2 in overtime. Despite having the most ice time of all the US forwards at 21:21, Brownie didn't make too much of a splash on the score sheet. He had 4 penalty minutes (interference and slashing), had 3 shots on net, and was even in the plus/minus column. Sully had only 14:20 of ice time, 4 shots on, and was a -1.

Going into the 3rd period, the Finns were up 2-0 and with about 5 minutes to go, Phil Kessel and Drew Stafford scored and tied the game up sending it to OT. But at 3:59 of the OT frame, Finland scored to win and advanced to the medal rounds while the US was sent home.

On Sat. May 17th, Finland played Sweden shutting them out 4-0. With this win, the Finns earned the Bronze Medal in the World Championships. Canada and Russia will play on Sun. May 18th for the Gold Medal. For coverage on that, check out Scarlett Ice.

Even though Brownie still looks young in that photo, he also looks studly. On the other hand, Patty looks very...goofy and unattractive.

Truer words have never been spoken.

Brown's hit at the tail end of the game against Finland made me jump out of my seat. Bravo.

Hey Connie...next time I talk to Patrick O'Sullivan, should I try to get his phone number for you? :-)

2 Man - He's just plain awesome.

Gann - Haha, that's funny.
