USA-Canada ‘One of the Top Five Games’ Ever?

USA-Canada 'One of the Top Five Games' Ever? hockey reporter James Murphy stopped by SportsDesk on Sunday night to give his take on the USA-Canada game that resulted in the Canadians taking home the Olympic gold medal.

It was “probably one of the top five games — if not top three — that I have ever watched in my lifetime,” exhorted Murphy.

He also had high praise for Canadian forward Sidney Crosby, who scored the winning goal in overtime.

“He comes through in the clutch,” Murph said. “He has won a Stanley Cup, gold at the World Juniors. … He’s a great leader and has really come into his own over the last two years.”

Murphy also touched on Bruins trade action, saying that the team may have some deals in place to announce as early as midnight Monday morning, when the Olympic trade freeze expires. He names Peter Mueller of the Phoenix Coyotes as a potential target.

Murph also gives his take on trade rumors surrounding Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas. Check out the video below for more.
