When you don't score goals, you don't win..

Remember the great Ronnie Sundin



only played 1 game in the NHL in 97-98 and then bolted back to Sweden. looked like a solid prospect during the 97-98 season in the AHL.. imagine if he stayed in North America.

Exactly, they are 14 hrs ahead but there is only a 10 hr diffrence.

But the starting times aren't that splendid admittedly. A 9pm start is a 7am start in NY and 11 am start in LA. A 11 am start is a 9 pm start in NY and 1 AM start in LA. A 6 PM start will be a 4 AM start in NY and a 8 AM start in LA.

Should just be a swollen hand, we'll probably know more when he comes back to NY.

I was impressed with Norway's strategy. They were severely outgunned from a talent standpoint, but they made the neutral zone a living hell for the Russians most of the game. Just not enough firepower to score goals.

Ive always been very unimpressed with the play from the career KHL'ers on the Russian team. I think its time to put to bed the notion that league competes with the NHL in any way, shape, or form.

It is where people go when they aren't good enough for the NHL, but want to get paid. Anyone who thinks they are even remotely comparable is kidding themselves.

Anze Kopitar speaks great English.

Never would have thought that Slovenia would get to the quarters. Big congrats to them.

Well deserved.

Was unimpressed with Vanek's game in this tournament.

First info I could find, after the Russia game

Quote:

New York Rangers-spilleren ble truffet av en puck i hånda under gruppespillskampen mot Østerrike, og sto over mandagens trening.

Tirsdag var hånden fortsatt ikke leget, og Zuccarello måtte dermed se Russland-kampen fra tribunen.

- Han har vondt i hånda. Men det første bildet viste ikke noe, sa en usikker Johansen.
Basicly it says zuke was hit with a puck in the hand area but the first xray didn't show anything.His hand hurts according to the national coach..

It's a swollen hand. This end of the world thing you've been going on throughout the Olympics needs to stop.

If the x-ray didn't show anything doesn't that mean it's not broken?

I remember cases where an initial X-Ray didn't show much but later it turned out the limb in question does have a small break.
