Yesterday's Winners: USA, Canada, and Slovakia

I don't know ... I may be wrong in my predictions ... Canada is playing well, but aren't outplaying their opponents by much, and a surprising loss last night for Russia against Slovakia (the picture above pretty much says it all after Ovechkin misses a shootout attempt; LOVE how it looks as though Slovakia is "heckling" him!). I predicted Russia winning the gold, silver for Canada and Sweden with the bronze (USA not medaling), but the way it looks now it may be all over the boards and nothing close to what I had thought. We shall see!!

Here are the results from yesterday:
  • USA - 6, Norway - 1 (Malone with another goal!); RECAP
  • Canada - 3, Switzerland - 2 (SO -- Crosby scored GWG); RECAP
  • Slovakia - 2, Russia - 1; RECAP
Today's schedule:
3:00 PM - Belarus VS Sweden (MSNBC)
7:30 PM - Czech Republic VS Latvia (CNBC)
11:55 PM - Finland VS Germany (MSNBC)

THe Olympic hockey games are truly like watching the playoffs. It's anybody's game every time they take to the ice. The Slovak's upset of the Russians (go Halak!) maybe just the first of many. Canada's near upset also goes to show how any team can come up big. The game Sunday between the US and Canada now looms even larger. My only advice to the US? DO NOT PISS SIDNEY CROSBY OFF. He is a man possessed when he gets like that.
