I haven't been following the World Championships, but a hatty (albeit against NOR) is great for Dubinsky. Let's hope he keeps up the good work.

But they're still Norway.
Any reason why Norway isn't that good? Is it a lack of talent on the current team or are they traditionally a poor hockey country?

They're traditionally not among the most elite hockey countries. That said, they don't totally suck, because they wouldn't be there if they did.

Nice hat-trick by Dubi btw.. i dont care if it was against us. Norway isnt that much of a hockey nation. Half the players on the national team play in the national league and are basicly part time hockeyplayers. We have about 30 indoor ice rinks (and thats not much!).

We now have Patrick Thoresen (playing for the Flyers (3-4th line, scratched in the ECF 2 and 3) and Tollefsen (CBJ) as a 5-7 deffenseman. I guess Espen Knutsen is the most known player from our country recently. Small country (app 4,5 mill).

That said, we held Finland to OT, beat Germany and loss only 2-1 to Canada (with our goalie with 50+ saves). Our best men play in The Swedish Elite League and in Germany.

It has bin a great WC for our country, reaching th Quarter Finals for the very first time this year(up against Canada).

We are not supposed to beat USA (or Canada) so we are just enjoying our ride in this one. I route for the NHL (and in particular the Rangers of course) and im just glad my friends get their eyes up for the Rangers (and Dubi!!!).

For the first time since the winter olympics on Lillehammer 94' hockey is sendt prime time on national TV.

For those who just want the goals:

None of Dubi's were all that impressive, but it's good to see him continuing to play well.

It was indeed. Just remember, he's not very big so people doubted him going #1 overall

Nice to see Lundqvist completely own Elias a couple of times tongiht. After one miracle save Elias went to the hallway behind the bench and completely trashed his stick and threw it away like a spear... lol

It seems as if they didn't know Dubi's name, they kept skipping the moment the puck went in only when he scored.

Is the USA game televised?

I'm pissed that the NHL Network didn't get the contract from the IIHF.
