Great game so far between the Canadians and the Russkies...

Canada in the lead, 1 - 0.

Seems to be no love lost between the two pop2.gif

Fantastic finish from the Russians!

Kaigurodov's goal was the prettiest of the tournament so far.

Kinda typical that Kovalchuk scores the big one, he's been
criticized for ineffectiveness by the commentators every game
up til now.

So...Finns facing a rematch against Russia in the semi.
A much more motivated Russia than in the last encounter...


On the other hand - the road to the gold medals just opened
for the Finns. They can beat Russia, but not the Canadians hehheh.
It's all in their heads :)

So...we're down to the last four.

Strange, how they're all still from the club of same-olds,
despite the 'lesser' teams doing so well in the beginning
stages of the tournament. All underdogs lost their quarter
finals...Can - Rus being the only really even match.

No matter how things turn out, I'm a bit impressed with
the Finnish team, and how the organization handles the
generational transition. Smoothly done.
A world class star is born in Mikael Granlund :)
What a bag of moves that kid has got! :)
And Little Koivu is a born leader!
This will be good to build around in future Olympics etc.

Dare I say that I smell gold *snif* *snif*
Methinx we'll go all the way if we beat the Russkies tonight.


Sad though, that the tournament ends :(
No way to avoid politricks, nuclear disasters and war catching
one's attention again...yeah, back to reality and the usual sheit.

Seems like hockey is one of the best, smartest modes of inter-
national interaction.

Nu-uh, the Finns beat the Canadians two years ago. The Canadians won gold but the Finns were the only ones to beat them. hi5.gif
