Remembering how emotional Canada was against the Russians, who were considered favorites to win up until that game, it will be interesting to see if the Canadians can generate the same passion and fire without a Stanley Cup Final-style crowd cheering for them in the background. The Canadians will come in as the villains, and every marginal play will get a shrill chorus of whistles from the crowd. The Russians, by contrast, were listless and emotionally flat in that game, but it will be interesting to see if they are hungry and flying around the ice this time around. At a minimum, the Russian goaltending will no doubt be much improved.
