In the Worlds and Olympics, they play pretty damn physical which is against the stereotype for players across the pond.

It's too bad they don't have the killer instinct this tournament. I'm hoping they get their shining moment and can figure something out that they couldn't do vs Czech, Sweden, and Finland.

Nice poke by the goalie. Risky, but it worked. Good.
I was thinking something like this during the first period. Heck, even the look of the jerseys reminded me of Canada!

ive become a big fan of slepyshev. fun to watch and got a lot of skill. still baffled that he went undrafted last year, wonder if he will get picked up this year since i believe he re-entered right? at the very least he has to be a 2nd round talent.
