Hmm... my isu live results page is saying Mroz is still skating... Either way I have to go; I'll be crossing my finger for Kozuka on the bus! :D
Into 2nd place, surprising.
Mroz is on the podium!!!!!!!!!!!
Not surprising at all, no quad and he popped at least one jump, I think two?
it's not working. glad i have this site to keep me updated. scores anyone?

Easy quad by Brian, but he really does need to work on his interpretation of this magnificent piece of music imho. Also, he had a couple of wonky landings, not sure what the score will be....
I'll give Joubert credit for going outside his comfort zone, but that was a mediocre performance, devoid of personality, full of weak jumps and just not very impressive. I hope he improves as the season progresses, but frankly, I'd score him behind Mroz and Verner for that blandness.
Omg, 3rd place by Brian. :( :( :( :(
Verner got 144+ : 68 and change for TES, 75 and change for PCS.

Joubert got 135+, and is in third. Mroz is guaranteed second, Verner third.

And Brandon Mroz finally medals!!!!!!
Kozuka was boring. Couple iffy landings, hand down on the quad. He'll win overall (no popped jumps or anything) but I wouldn't be surprised if Mroz won the long program. Which frankly shocks me. Mroz in second shocks me.
156.11 for Kozuka. He wins by a cannonball.
Why are you shocked? Mroz just did what Chan has never done - a clean skate
