FEB 22, 2014 2:00p ET
The US men's hockey team showed it really was gold-medal-or-bust at Sochi when it lost overwhelmingly to Finland in the Olympic bronze-medal game.
There was a lot of headshaking and handwringing seen around the Twitterverse after Team USA was blanked 5-0.
Here's a sampling of what was seen on the web:
Pretty sure this is Brian Burke and David Poile’s nightmare.— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) February 22, 2014
Though props were also given to the triumphant Olympic swan song of NHL-er Teemu Selane, the 43-year-old Finn competing in his sixth Games.
With all due respect to "Biathlon King" Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, the most impressive 40-something at these games is Teemu Selanne— Alex Goldberger (@alexgoldberger) February 22, 2014
Or maybe the encroaching Sochi nightmare bear had something to do with the rout.
