Czechs were not ready, really sloppy. Got it together later on, but still didn't have much offense to finish it out. 

 

Go Sweden!

I liked the way they played in the second half of the game, but yeah, they were clearly the inferior team and not ready to go. I hate to agree with Pierre McGuire, but kind of some baffling omissions by the Czech front office. Hudler and Vrbata are both very capable offensive players and would have helped a lot.

 

Fun game, the Wings players played pretty well. Better get some coffee brewing for this USA game.

CBC. Too late?
Just to b perfectly clear, CBC refers to their coverage as a "webcast" and is partly being unwritten by funds that come out of my pocket, being a Canadian citizen and taxpayer.

It's only for Canadians.

You guys keep all the good stuff to yourself. Like this:

I just saw the replay of the 2nd goal Canada scored against the US women.  That is utter bull.  Whistle blows, play is over.  Period.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Probably our best overall d-man today actually. OEL and Karlsson were both quite bad defensively at times, and Oduya/Hjalmarsson had some disaster shifts and showed their lack of offensive talent.

Nyquist was great. I would not be surprised to see him moved up to Z's line eventually.

Overall Swedes had an okay first game. Glad they didn't get too much of a free ride, they needed a test to see what they need to work on.

I don't think the whistle affected the play, but by the rulebook it shouldn't have counted.  Which begs the question, does intent to blow exist in IIHF?

I don't know anything about the international rulebook, but by my ideal rules, the goal should not have counted. I do however think Canada played well enough to win, and I'm sure in the first two periods there were controversial calls both ways. Besides, it's only the round-robin. It's the gold medal game that counts, and that is still 0-0.

That second goal was a result of him running around all over the place. Bad pinching and getting lost in the defensive zone. Sweden thoroughly dominated most of the game so a defensive defensemen isn't going to have a lot of work to do. Looked a lot like he did for the red wings lately

I thought Karlsson looked pretty damn good tbh. All the swedes forwards were good

In every sport I've ever played where officials had whistles, a blown whistle means the play is dead. The US-Canada thing wasn't even the intent to blow argument, the whistle had been blown.

Lundqvist with 27 saves? Does anyone know where I can watch the highlights? Can't seem to find them anywhere, even on the nbcolympics site.

I know this is kindof stating the obvious but DAMN...what I wouldnt give for a Karlsson/Ekman-Larsson type guy on the Wings blue line...

Really missin ol Nick Lidstrom watching Swedens offensive d-men win that game.

I would love Ekman-Larsson on the Wings. He is a great player.
