I just watched the game, as I worked all freaking day.
Halak was looking good until the 2nd goal he let in. The first goal he had no chance on, as it was deflected on the side of him. The 2nd goal looked like it skipped off the ice and through his 5 hole, but it was very weak and should have been stopped. Czech's took over the game after that. The Slovak's do not have the fire power the Czech's do, so the weak goal that tied it 2-2 really hurt. Overall I still think he played an ok game, as he made a great save on Hudler point blank, and he had impressive numbers up until this game, as he only let in 2 goals in 3 games against Russia, Sweden and Austria, although he got peppered against the USA team.
Linhart on the other hand was not very impressive again. I watched him make some questionable moves that lead to 3 goals, but he does have good size and made a couple of decent hits. Didn't see much else, but I tried to focus on Halak tonight. I have two of Linhart's games on tape, and I'll most likely tape the Czech game tomorrow.
