All those brawl-filled "exhibition" games and the "meaningless" preliminary round game were nothing more than table-setters for Thursday's Olympic gold medal hockey showdown between Team USA and Canada.

It was only a prelim round game between two teams already headed for Monday's semifinals and probably a gold medal showdown. So what did Wednesday's 3-2 win by Canada over the U.S. mean?
