This is nonsense.

Why do people reference one off games as definitive evidence that the reverse cannot happen. It isn't like we are talking about an elite team facing a good team. Both teams are filled with exceptional players and are capable of beating each other in any game. Variables like goaltending, lucky bounces, deviation in performances from top players, one exceptional play, discipline or even the flu can alter the results of these games.

The NHL has relatively parity. So why wouldn't international ice hockey?

At the elite elite elite level, the outcome of a game between two competitors can vary each time they meet.

OT : Mr Kanadensisk, you're not even a funny troll. If you're going to troll, please inject some humour into it.
