Team USA should have used the Flying V and other awesome Twitter trends from U.S.-Canada hockey

First and foremost, congratulations to the U.S. men’s hockey team for making it to the semifinals of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Ultimately, the 1-0 loss stings, but the U.S.-Canada hockey match did produce some amazing trends on Twitter. Take a look at this screenshot from around 11:15 PT:

Flying V was trending because Americans were wondering why Team USA didn’t take a page out of Gordon Bombay’s playbook and unleash it on Canada. It worked so many times for Charlie Conway, why couldn’t it for Zach Parise and Patrick Kane?

#LoserKeepsBieber is just plan hilarious. Unfortunately, looks like he is staying in the States for the time-being.

Also, Go Sweden. Because if you beat Team USA, we’re not going to be gracious losers.

In conclusion, America wins the gold medal on Twitter. And Go Sweden.
