They weren't too nice to the Hungarians. The womped them 9 - 0. St.Louis had a four point game. Next I think, is Slovakia on Tuesday.
he can come to the canucks if he wants, along with la cavellier, gaborik, hossa,
iginla, ovetchkin, (just kidding), no I'm not.
Good for them, these are good warm up games, and they work they way up to the
hard games, good practice.
Good, they needed a loss, that will keep them more focused, and not let them
get too comfortable.
Canada won a hard fought game against Latvia. The score was 4 - 2. The refereeing was bad even by European standards. Canada advances to the quarter finals.
Particularly frustrating since we outshot them something like 37 to 16.
It was some good hockey, and Bryzgalov is a good goalie who stood on his head, but I tend not to put too much store in the IIHF championship for the simple reason that so many of the best players are still involved in the NHL playoffs. Imagine team Sweden with Holmstrom, Zetterberg, Lidstrom and the Sedins; or Russia with Malkin, Ovechkin and Datsyuk; never mind the stars Team Canada still has playing. Its a reason I like the Olympic tournament or a Canada Cup style one: you get everyone's best out there.
