This is the consolation Cup for those who got eliminated or didn't make it to playoffs.
So many big name stars in the US vs. Canada game ... better than any of the remaining NHL playoff games.

Kronner's goal was pretty sweet, especially from that angle along the goal line. Way to go Sweden, 4-1! And US!

not really. maybe from North American point of view it looks like this, but for European players this event, played almost always in Europe, is a big deal.
mind you... it's normal time for people here, we can watch the game without losing sleep, and for a big number of fans it's a chance to see home grown
talent. and for those players its a big chance to represent their country which at this side of the pond is still important.

in short: just because it is outside US/North America doesn't mean that it is worse...

Good job Jimmay.

Do teams have captains and assistant captains? If so I imagine Z must be one.

I don't recall seeing A's on players jerseys, but team captains... well... it's in the rules of the ice hockey ;)

Alfie is captain of Team Sweden. and he's been playing good

Z has looked great thus far. Pavel, not so much. He looks uninterested/injured ?

i know canadas goaltending is a little weak but as far as the rest of the team they are stacked, glad to see Jimmy doing work and leading the US forward

Pav definitely isn't 100%, hasn't been since his knee-surgery. Not sure why he even decided to play in this tournament instead of resting up.

Z on the other hand was expected to be Sweden's best player and he's more than living up to that.

I read that he was checked into the Norway goaler by Tollefson and a scrum insued, but don't know who was fighting or what.


That would be our (read: Norway) captain, Ole Kristian Tollefsen (former Blue Jackets, Flyers, and Red Wings). Big guy.. Guess he thought he had to pull something to get the team pumped when he started did what he did to Z.

Im not 100% sure. reffing was bad (not that bad as Finland - Slovakia, but nevertheless) but the goal scorer clearly had skate in the crease
and AFAIR this is still in the rulebook of international hockey. truth being said, there was clear interference from Russian D-man on this play...

Yep. Skrøder (Norway #19) is clearly pushed into the Russia-goalie. Body in crease - skate..barely. He gets on his feet, skates outside instantly - picks up loose puck, scores. I think its horrible..(cant find situation on YouTube yet..)

Not that I think Norway would have won the game..but 2-2 there could have done big things for us ... instead Russia scores on the following attack..

EDIT: Video available here LINK. The situation we are discussing happens around 00:32 into the clip.

Nice to see Pasha get a goal. I wish I could watch the games. Why did they block USA out of seeing the games?
