    Yes, and that smile sure went away once the scores were shown. I think they expected much higher.

    I agree. I was a fan of that pair but certainly not this one.

    I think that botched 2A sequence was the difference between Denney/Coughlin placing 3rd and 4th here. You can't afford to do a 1A-1A when others skate well. Good for the Canadians. They were great here. It reminds me of Skate Canada last year when they skated their best program of the season. Hopefully this time, they won't peak this early.

    Not great for the Zhangs. SBS spins were really rough. I don't love the program, but they skated decently.

    Zhangs clearly lost a ton in TECH....They lost even to D/C there despite the 3-jump combo. And B/L beat them as well. As IP said, all those little mistakes add up.

    Congrats to S/S! Awesome comeback!

    115...that is way low than I expected. Seriously. Glad they took the silver medal in the end(I might be in the minority here, but I would have the B/L in front of D/C.)

    I guess you were right.

    I was surprised the Zhangs didn't score a little more and look forward to seeing the protocols. I thought they did great for just coming back; but, it's worrisome for their hopes the rest of the season if they can't get more points. I wish them luck. I really can't wait to see S/S LP grow this season, I really like it quite a bit.

    First time seeing D/C - I'm surprised how well they skate together and I give her props for trying to refine some of her elements. I wish them all the best.

    And, I really, really want to see Caitlyn skate again...miss her a lot.
