Team USA puts one in the net with 0.0 on the game clock at the end of the second period: no goal.  ONE frickin' tenth of a second in a zero - zero game.  Hiller has his form back; the shots are 32 - 8 in favor of the US.  The Swiss defense has been suffocating.  This one is a nail-biter... to say the VERY least.

Update 1442 hrs:  YES!  USA finally puts one in the net on the power play.  Parise makes it 1 - 0 USA.

Update 1450:  EXCELLENT PK by USA, score remains 1 - 0.

Update 1512:  Intense!  1:43 left in the third, the Swiss pull Hiller.  Wow.

Update 1514:  USA with the empty-netter with 11.2 left on the clock!!  Yes!  USA 2, Switzerland 0!!

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
