I was expected Sweden to be more of a challenge.

So tomorrow Semi-Finals has:
USA vs Canada (even though we beat them in game 1 of preliminary round, Canada must not put there guard down)
Russia vs Finland (this will either be blowout by Fin's. Or hell of a game with some big hits, OV must be getting a little PO by now)

If that happens, Canada had better have its act together or it will be the same result as last matchup.
But first beat the US

It took Finland 9 minutes to get there first shot on Russian net, I thought this was going to be good game. So far has not disappointed

This will not be the US team we beat 15 days ago, I'm sure the players & coach of Canada knows that.

Canada has let US dictate the game in second period, look what happens. If they don't get with it they will head off to Bronze metal game.

Canada gets undefeated Fin's for Gold, meanwhile US gets the grumpy Russians for Bronze.

Second period was making me nervous

I would like to see the IIHF remove the shootout to decide medal games, go to just OT2..... if needed OT3 etc.... etc.
Leave the shootout to the world of soccer (football).
