Postgame Recap Quaterfinals
Wow what a day of hockey and what a day for results. Im still stunned on how this day went with every game.I was surprised that Switz gave USA a run for there money, even though we came through with the Win. I still can't get over the Russia vs Canada game who would have thought Canada was going to make it a blowout. I don't think anyone could have predicted that. Nabakov really needs to know how to step it up in clutch games seriously! Like i said if you were going to beat Russia you had to stop that first line ,and Canada shut them down.The Finland/Czech game i predicted Finland and they actually won that was a good overall game to watch.Now Sweden/Slovak im still confused about Lundqvist's play 4 goals on 14 shots, Thats not the Hank i know. Gaborik played real well against his own goalie in the NHL.But i had Sweden to win that game, so that was a bit of a upset.
Semi Finals analysis
USA vs Finland
This will be a great game to watch of course(because USA is playing). No but seriously i believe USA might not be a powerhouse in this game. They are playing a real good offensive team with a lot of high skilled shooters and playmakers. But like the USA have been doing, to win they will just have to fight hard for the puck and stay physical throughout the whole game. They will have to dump the puck in on this team and run them into the boards on the back check, let them know your coming to hit. I think USA offense lacked a bit in the Switz game, but they will have to go back to the basics good passing, lots of shots,quality shots, and knowing who is open. I will pick Team USA to win this game because of there speed and strength.
Canada vs Slovakia
Also, this will be a fun game to watch (for Canada's fans). After watching that game vs Russia i don't see to much hope for the Slovaks. Not saying they aren't skilled offensively, but they aren't the strongest team and they are weak in terms of Goalie. I can see Canada being ready to play as hard as they did vs Russia against Slovakia. Especially since they really have the crowd backing them. There is a lot of Canada team spirit flying around Vancouver right now. I could be 100% wrong on this, But i predict a blow out Canada wins.
