Yes, even the Olympics women's hockey tournament. It's been a back-and-forth hockey game.
South Korea players carried flags around the ice after the game at their first Olympics.
"The politicians made the decision... but our players and our staff are the ones that made it work", said Murray, whose team always attracted a packed stadium and a swarm of media at each game. "It's going to be a rough game". The coin now sits in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Both teams were trounced 5-0 in the semi-finals, Finland by the United States and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation by Canada.
Canada has won four gold medals since that first loss.
But the sight of North and South Korean skaters on the ice together has touched many spectators, with an International Olympic Committee official even suggesting that the Korean team be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Mikaela Shiffrin-already one of five American gold medalists with her giant slalom win last week-could join her in that race, and Shiffrin's a favorite in the combined (slalom and downhill) event, which is scheduled for Friday.
"We've worked really hard, really hard this tournament, the last four years, and our entire lives to put ourselves in this position to go after a gold medal, " she said. The hockey gods can be so cruel. Poulin made it 2-0 in the second - still closer than anyone expected. Canada pulled goalie Shannon Szabados for an extra attacker and Canada pressed for the tying goal.
Needing a win to advance, the Americans got out to a 3-0 lead as of the Lariat's print time of 10:30 p.m. Monday night. "I say, 'Why not?" "We're going to be focussed on those things and be ready to go".
Finland remains winless now in eight games against the Americans at the Olympics. "We got all of the above tonight, other than a shortie, and maybe that's in our future".
The United States defeated Canada in the 1998 Japanese final, and Canada returned the blow in the Salt Lake City-2002, Vancouver-2010 and Sochi-2014 editions. And it undoubtedly added fuel to the fiery rivalry between Canada and the U.S.
The day after the Olympic opening ceremonies, North Korea's Kim Jong-un invited South Korean president Moon Jae-in to a meeting in Pyongyang.
Lee Hee-beom, head of the Pyeongchang Games organizing committee, said they would be open to the idea but indicated he would like to see a long-term plan in place rather than seeing a team formed in a matter of weeks, as happened this year. On one hand it's like any other hockey tournament and on the other hand it's our Stanley Cup, right? We changed our systems a little bit.
Whether Schuler goes with the tried and tested Szabados or opts for Lacasse, Canada's goaltender should be a key figure in Canada's fortunes Thursday when faced with the quick and creative US forwards.
