The Swiss seem to slowly but surely be creeping toward relevance with each tournament.
Go check out the game thread in the IIHF forum, Canadian meltdown

USA 4:1 Latvia

Carle and Thompson pointless and even in +/- again. But they're leaders of the team!

Bishop with 19 saves on 20 shots. Didn't see the goal, but 19 for 20 ain't bad.

Canada played poorly but at least Stamkos tried throughout the game, even if his penalty shot was as bad as they tend to be, nonetheless was great to see him play live!

holy **** that ice is wide. I love it.

I would love to see Stammer - Vinny - Marty for a game just to see how that works out.

After 1 period between RUS/USA the score is 2-2.

Matt Carle's weak wrists are showing to be an issue, especially on international ice. I could see him making a Raphael Diaz type pass that results in a teammate getting wrecked. Compared to any NHL regular season game, there's almost no urgency. Paul Stastny's been good though. Haven't noticed much of Textbook.

Bishop has been okay. I'm pretty lenient on NA goalies going to the big ice. The markers that goalies use to figure their position are moved around, so there's a period of time where they need to readjust.

It's an odd feeling to see Bishop let on in and not have to worry about a blind rage on here about Frantz Jean.

btw, NBCSN stream.
http://stream.nbcsports.com/nbcsn/in...ahoo&p=ya5nbcs

After 2, 3-3, and I've noticed that the broadcasting rhythm I liked with the DEL Final a little while ago is here, which makes me think that it's, at least in part due to the larger ice surface, as the broadcasters are knowing when to back off the commentary.

Former Lightning Shane Hnidy is color commentator on this game, and he's been pretty good at it. I could see him moving up in the broadcasting world.

Anson Carter is one of the studio guys, and while I can tell he's smart and knowledgeable, he's got a ways to go.

The sweaters have more squared off necklines and lets you see just how many players wear necklaces. This isn't a Snoop Dogg video, I don't need to see that. (but still sort of ehh)

Not fond of the way Carle played that. Went down to one knee so close to the net and did effectively nothing in terms of pass-coverage while taking himself out of the play should Kovalchuk decide to step up. Bishop had no chance

How did the US team's goal song become Born in the USA?

I thought this was clear by now.

The good news: USA finally had a stout defensive and goaltending game, beating Finland 4-1!

The bad news: John Gibson was starting in place of Ben Bishop for it.



Alaskan Assassin with an assist, at least.

Janus with 15 saves on 17 shots in 2 periods of relief in Slovakia's 5-3 loss to Latvia. Came in after Stana allowed 3 goals on 7 shots.

Stammer just scored the OT winner for his second goal of the night against hockey powerhouse Slovenia (4-3). He now has 6 goals and 11 points in 7 games.

Canada doesn't look as good as they should in this tournament. Tonight they actually looked a lot like the Lightning: Hope for Stamkos to score often enough to give them a chance.

Judging from the highlights, USA played a very weak game against Slovakia and lost 4-1.

Bishop was sadly awful, two mistakes that cost two goals

Holy smokes, Alexander Ovechkin is starting to turn into a serious bad luck charm for any playoff team. Craig Smith puts up 0+5 and Stastny has a four point game as USA blows out Russia 8-3. Nate Thompson only Bolt on the scoreboard with his one goal, though he did put in some good work for Ryan Carter's shorthanded goal.

USA will now face the winner of Switzerland-Czech Republic in the semifinal round on Saturday. Stammer and Team Canada take on Sweden at noon ET.
