CAN/SUI is a 4pm start with pre-game at 3:30 on TSN but I don't know if NHLN-US carries the game as well as pre-game show. FIN/RUS is an 8pm start but I don't know if there is a pre-game show anywhere. I'm guessing there isn't since it isn't a medal game and because Canada isn't involved.

Yep
Yep
Yep

I'm hoping for the best. But Cameron hockey sucks for anyone watching it.

Russia and Finland going to OT. Finland had a late 3-1 lead.

Finland loses in OT. Same old song for them. They'll out-work you but they can't out-score you.

From what I've heard, the US winning won't be nearly the shock it was last year.

So, how many NHL representatives are swarming around Benjamin Conz's house over the next few months? Conz was the only reason the Swiss stayed within 2 goals of Canada toay (not counting the EN). Well, that and another huge gift goal by a Canadian netminder.

He still has to be drafted.


To which I thought he already was, apparently not.

Conz is still eligible for the draft next year so he can't just be signed.

Thanks. I knew he went undrafted in 2010, but thought his rights were owned by one of Langnau or Lausanne.

Russia pressed hard for sure, but Finland outplayed them for so long, they deserved the W. Was a great game to be at though.

I'm going to the game tomorrow! Hoping for a Canadian Win but they're in tough with the USA. Hopefully the Canadian's offensive can rattle JC early and often. That with solid Canadian goaltending (we've yet to see it so far) would be make for an awesome game! GO CANADA GO!

Stop being so optimistic!

It should be a great game. Was almost hoping USA would lose to Swiss to see tomorrow's matchup of USA-Canada tonight instead since I had tickets, but the later the matchup the better in reality.

I can only hope! Visentin should have an easier time against NA shooters, and JC has been just alright in the OHL this year, and I think everyone on Team Canada knows that. Good luck and may the better team win!!

That's awesome - I just heard there are tickets still available for the game. Too bad I'm a couple of provinces away...

Have a great time and cheer loud -- it should be a great game!

I'm not as worried about goaltending as the experience of the US team. Canada would look much better right now with Cam Fowler on the point with Ellis, and a PP unit of Hall, Seguin and Skinner... That's just too much depth to lose to the NHL.

It will be a shock if Canada wins this. Goaltending has been just terrible and the Americans have so many returning players from last year.

3-0 Canada halfway through the second. The Canucks have really come to play.

Ummm.... Fowler wouldn't be in a maple leaf jersey, so Canada didn't lose a damn thing where he's concerned.

Holy cow, did they ever! I didn't expect much out of this team, but they're playing their hearts out.
