(Canes In) The IIHF World Championships

Recommended Posts

First things first, Canada beat Slovenia in OT today and will advance as the 1st or 2nd seed in group A; depending on the outcome of the Switzerland-Belarus game tomorrow (Canada needs a Swiss loss in regulation).

USA is currently the 2nd seed in group B, but can advance as the number one seed with a win over Slovakia tomorrow.

The Czech Republic are in a win-or-go home game against Norway tomorrow. The Czech's need a win in regulation to move on to the quarterfinals.

Remember the top four in each group advance. Also I believe the U.S.'s game will be televised tomorrow. Game time is 11:15 (I believe), if you can; tune in.

The U.S. lost to Slovakia, but had already clinched their spot in the quarterfinals, they will advance as the second seed out of Group B.

 

Canada does finished up their game yesterday and will advance as the second seed from Group A, due to the Swiss win over Belarus.

Well obviously the big new is the injury to Eric Staal; he suffered a serious knee injury when Alex Hedler came in and made knee on knee contact with Eric. Edler received a 5+20 (major penalty with a game misconduct).

 

After the injury to Staal, Canada struggled to get things together and ultimately lost 3-2 in a penalty shootout.

 

Czech Republic was also eliminated as the were unable to solve the undefeated Swiss.

 

The big news was Team USA's domination against Russia. The reinforcements arrived in T.J. Oshie and Alex Galchenyuk and USA rolled Russia 8-3.
