Quote:"I hope we’re peaking at the right time," said Canada's Matt Duchene. "This is the time to peak right now. We have three games left in our season and we want to make them count. We go 3-0 and we’ve got a three-peat here. It’d be huge."
"Our last two games were good," said defenceman Colton Parayko, who scored another goal on a rocket shot from the point tonight. "I thought we basically played two 60-minute games. This was a good test for us, a good way to go into the quarter-finals. We know it’s going to be a tough challenge no matter who we play. These are games that can go either way with one bounce, so we want to be on top of our game. We’re all clicking well, and I think we’ve done a good job."
"I think they’re really fast," Finn Valtteri Filppula said of the United States. "They play that North American style, and you can’t turn the puck over. They’re going to turn the puck quick and go the other way. It’s going to be tough to chase. We’ve got to play really close defensively, play well, and hopefully turn those things into offence. We'll make sure we get the pucks in deep every time and hopefully spend some time in their zone."
Teams combined for three goals in an 80-second span early in the first, after which Canada settled down and controlled play the rest of the night.
The Canadians played with an intensity the Finns couldn’t match, chasing down loose pucks, cycling, effectively, and fighting off checks to make plays. In short, the winners looked more intent on winning.

I watched (until I fell asleep in the 1st interm, natch) Predators - Ducks
last night...well...what a fantastic game. Well on par with Russia - USA
in the World Champs and even more intense, of course.
So I'd say the NHL is still a/thee superior product on a global scale.
In other words: It's not the hockey, US
The hockey is better than ever - it's just you.
