Canadian women’s hockey team left inspirational note for men in dressing room (photo)


Fresh off the glory of winning the gold medal and riding high after beating Team USA on Thursday in an overtime classic the Team Canada’s women’s hockey squad wanted to pass along some of the good mojo they were feeling and left an inspirational note for the men’s team in advance of its semifinal showdown with the Americans on Friday.

The note was written by Hayley Wickenheiser, Brianne Jenner, and Shannon Szabados but it was on behalf of the entire Canadian women’s squad.

Whether or not it helped to fire up the fellows is unknown, but as Deadspin notes, the men’s hockey team at least indirectly or subconsciously followed the gals’ advice to a T, as the team went out and shut down the high-flying US team, winning 1-0 and punching its ticket for a Gold Medal Game showdown with Sweden.

Canadians. They’re good at hockey.

And now the US is stuck with Justin-freaking-Bieber. Great googly moogly.
