Man - that's a bad call. These refs are ****ed up! That's a hip check plain and simple.

Are the officials from a non-hockey nation?

That Canadian Sopcast channel might work as well, I watched United's game yesterday via that. Yup, it's on.

Refs must get bonuses for however many penalties they call in a game. That was a bad call.

Well, that's kind of a knee. Right?

I can't remember the reffing being THIS bad earlier years.

Swiss are not getting "bad" penalties in this game. Only Russia. Why?

I would be extremely proud if I was born in Switzerland today though. They are playing an amazing game.
Canada has much more top end talent though...

I really don't think any team can compete with the Swiss' passing and team play. They attack as a unit really well, move the puck, skate well. I wouldn't call them a mini-Canada at all, IMO, because of that East-West game. Canada is more about the grinding game, cycle game. Just awesome to watch this Swiss team.

The officiating has been horrible all tournament. Just have to expect it in the WJC. You're better off not playing physical or lifting your stick from the ice, lol.

That's because in earlier years this tournament has always been in Canada.

I have it as tied for 1st with SUI/SWE, SUI/FIN, and SUI/CZE, it's too bad none of their games were televised, hope they're in Canada's pool next year so I can see them on TV.

This one might take it because it's a do or die for both teams

Estonian Ref?

Seriously Russia should not be in a position where the referees can determine this game, only themselves to blame.

I just wanted to say I understand why some people whine when russians dive. Its really annoying - but as seen, every nation dives. Some more, some less..
