Ow, Canada

Just watched the Olympic Womens' ice hockey match between Canada and Italy. Everyone knew Italy was outmatched, but the home crowd cheered their team at the end almost as much as at the beginning. However, Canada absolutely dominated, winning 16-0. Italy didn't even get a shot on goal in the third period.

Some might say Canada should have backed off when the game was clearly won; however, I assume that goal differential is a tie breaker in the group stage (it usually is), so it was in Canada's best interest to run up the score. Poor Italy.
