Okay, so I'll just go to bed after the Barons-Rampage game, get up at 4:15, watch the game and be ready to go to work at 7, no problem, just like old times... I say it'll be 1-1 through two periods, then the French will run out of steam and it'll finish 4-1.
Well, on the bright side, this is the earliest time there is to play.. So, american international fans can have games also starting 11am at the latest in this tournament I think.. At weekends, thats solid time.
Im going to watch this game, or atleast some start of it... just to see bobby ryan surfing around there
So Lasch at second line? good choice for coaching staff to check how he will do in the role... the little guy will fly in the big ice and with the experience he has of it.
Wow, def gonna watch how hes doing there and can he impress the americans who have probably pretty low expectations for him... Ofcourse this game is not a real test for him or the team, but still.
I respect all fans who watch this at 2am because its clear that you win (or am I being ignorant for france, i got to admit atleast that I dont really know them). I would do the same with team Finland, thought and did in 2008 when it was in Halifax I think.
I don't think USA will have a problem with France. I made a bet for USA:
USA - France (+3) 2.35 5.05 2.00
Don't disappoint me now USA!
Waking up earlier in the morning isn't that bad, because you can go to work/wherever after that. Usually the NHL games start at 7pm ET, which is 2am in Finland. It's the worst time possible: there's no time to properly sleep before or after the game. West coast games often start at 5am Finnish time (EET), which is not bad: watch the game and then go to work.
