Canada is in tough
Almost half-way through the second period, still down 1-0, Canada is about to face a 5-on-3 disadvantage. This is going to be a interesting day.
USA and Slovakia meet at 2:00 PM - Slovakia is 2-0 after their surprise win over Russia.
Finland and the Czechs play at 3:00 PM - The 5-0 win over the Swiss by the Finns earlier this week looks even more impressive after watching the Swiss beat the Czechs 3-2, and Canada have a tough time with them here in the first. If Finland manages to pull out another win today against the Czechs, I think Canada better be worried about tomorrows matchup with Finns.
Earlier today, Russia barely squeeked by Kazakhstan 1-0. I've never heard of the guy before, but Kazakhstani goalie Vitaliy YEREMEYEV managed to stop 49 out of 50 shots to keep Kazakhstan in the game. Italy and Germany tied 3-3.
