Just out of curiosity why was this game played so early? Davos really didn't have much turn around from their game yesterday
Not sure but for the past 3/4 years that I've been following the tournament closely, it always has started at 6AM ET. Maybe the finals being played on NYE every year, they don't want to do a primetime game because most people have plans in the evening.

Yeah, that works I guess. Not to take anything away from Endras but he had the greatest advantage of any goalie playing against Canada - he got Canada in their very first game in the tournament. When you throw together a bunch of guys who don't normally play together and then ask them to adapt to a common system in a very short time frame, it's understandable that there may be kinks to battle through and it's understandable that that team will likely not look as good against a team who has been playing together all year and has been playing their system well.
Spezza always has this dorky look on his face but it kind of makes him endearing. It's hard for me to dislike him.
Really happy for the guys. With no NHL right now, it's something that they can enjoy for the time being and I'm sure being winning an international hockey tournament isn't going to look bad on their hockey resume.
By the way, what kind of medals are those? It's not a very clear shot...but they look almost transparent.
