Winner of each group advances straight to quarterfinals.

Best 2nd place team of the three second place teams goes straight to quarterfinals.

Remaining 8 teams play each other in an elimination game, with the four winners playing the four teams that got byes straight into the quarterfinals.

Ovechkin coming through in the clutch; Crosby can't do that

I'm sure crosby lovers are going to put up a thread on the main boards that says, "Crosby 1/2 - Ovy 1/3, obviously Crosby is way better." Or something like that.

So what you're saying is that Canada still has a chance to make it straight into the quarterfinals?

Ovy had a pretty horrible game from what I saw, maybe even worse than Crosby's tonight.

Why would they even put Ovechkin in the shootout? He has a really bad record.

Bykov has **** for brains - how can you not give Dats a second try. That man is a master with the puck.

yeah, no kidding. my only guess would be that the ice wasn't behaving for stick handlers... but then that's what Ovechkin did?!

i actually picked Slovakia to win this one, so I'm liking it.

May I ask why you have such an obvious inferiority complex regarding Crosby? The only thing I find more hilarious than the comparison of two amazing players is the fact that people actually hate one of them.

LMAO... yer funny. I dislike the disparity in how the NHL, the Media, and certain people treat Crosby's accomplishments compared to the way they treat the accomplishments of others. As an individual hockey player, I think he's a punk, and he snivels, for no good reason, more than most good players.

Damn, kinda sad I missed this one. Based on how the Swiss did today, the Slovaks did today, and the Germans looked yesterday these groups may be deeper in their competitiveness than I thought...

So you hate Crosby because he's a "punk?" Why is he a punk? Because he doesn't jump over the glass after scoring a meaningless goal?

I happen to like both players immensely; Ovechkin for his style of play, entertainment value, and personality and Crosby for his professionalism and dedication to winning. You seem to enter every thread by announcing Crosby with the name "Cindy." I find it strange as to why you have developed such a hatred for one of the two best players in the league, but to each his own, I guess.

No, because he hits players in the balls.

I don't hate Crosby, I think he very well may be the best player in the NHL. But I think he is also overrated by a lot of people. He is also a bit of a whiner, like NBSF said.

Yes. Their goal differential helps.

The whining was very early on in his career. Maturity comes over time. Ovechkin will stop jumping over the glass every time he scores too, it just hasn't happened yet. Crosby hasn't been a "whiner" or "diver" in several years. He has just been a "winner."

Nabby is the ultimate ********* for punching guys in the balls, crosschecking his own teammate and being greedy.

I was at the game on Nov 7, 2009. I remember him whining quite a bit to the referees.

I'm fairly sure Corey Perry has no balls in which to be hit. Both based on his character and complete lack of reaction to that incident.
