Might have to make the time to catch this one
Maybe he will play, maybe it will be Gerber. Both had amazing games !

logically, after the QF where Gerber had an awesome game, he should have played. The coach chose Berra instead. Right choice ... when a SO is the result !!

But who will play in final ? tough guess.
prbably Berra ... to be seen.

And ... yes, Berra is now leading the %saves before Enroth (Sweden)

Berra making a strong case to be Calgary's starting goalie next year.

It certainly looks as though with Berra, Joey Mac, Ramo, Brassoit, and even Ortio, the Flames goaltending situation moving forward beyond Kipper may not be as bleak as some might think.

Yeah... Winning one international matchup with john Gibson as your counterpart doesn't exactly scream NHL starter to me. Its better than a kick in the teeth though and I'm glad that hes doing well.

Nope, Martin Gerber plays the final. It was the idea of the coach to have a fresh goalie for the medal game. And if you have 2 such great goalies on the team you can bring your #2 in the semis.

"Simpson would not reveal whether he would go with Berra in net again Sunday or return to former NHL goalie Martin Gerber. Gerber was in net for a 2-1 quarter-final win over the Czechs."

Have you come across anything more recent that confirms tomorrow's starter? Either way, first medal for the Swiss in this tournament in 60 years, be nice to see them win it all.

Sounds like SUI were in control for the first half of the 1st, and parts of the 2nd before SWE finally took over.. was probably more intense and entertaining of a game than the score would indicate. Congrats to the Swiss on nabbing the silver, exceeded expectations with a heck of a tourney - nothing to be ashamed of.. wonder if Simpson's kicking himself for not starting Yogi though lol
