All it takes is a hot goalie for a couple games and a team is suddenly playing for the gold. I wouldn't be surprised to see Canada, Russia, Sweden, Finland or the US make the gold medal game. Slovakia or the Czech republic could do it, but this is really a crapshoot.
I do run a hockey website, I should know something about the sport.
Assuming they beat the Swiss, they still have to beat the winner of the Finland - Czech Republic game. I'd prefer to see Finland to be honest. Canada and Russia in the second round is going to be a good game. Hard to believe one of those teams isn't going to even have a chance to play for a medal.
ok guys...don't rub it in! We, in Canada, are going crazy about the loss! That is all people are talking about. The radio talk shows are a buzz, newspapers, everything. We are hockey country where we live and breath hockey!! Record breaking numbers watching last night, while to our friends south of the boarder, NBC didn't even carry the game??? Wow!
Well, we will be all glued to our TV tomorrow night. Go Canada Go!!
