A pizza joint and bar in upstate New York says it won't sell Canadian beer during the hockey clash, which will send one team to the gold medal game in Sochi.

You can't blame them, considering we've already heard about Canadians segregating their beer rations in Sochi. After the U.S. women's heartbreaking loss to Canada on Thursday, American hockey fans probably aren't going to have a taste for Canadian beer anyway.
