Well, being Canadian...

I hope Canada will win. I watched today's game. It was 3-2 after the second, with 2 late goals by the Czechs. The third period became a blowout with Canada winning 8-4. Burke (starting goalie) left the game. I havent read up on the extent of the injury, but Roberto Luongo will be just fine it net, if he has to start.

Canada was able to beat the Sweedes earlier in the tournament, and I hope they will do it again.

It will be a good game to see.

Being Swede, I must say that since our win against Finland in the quarter final, there's a lot of new spirit in us. Yes, I hope for a good game too, with lots of scoring.

What a stupid question. Canada!

Hopefully everyone has forgotten about our loss to the Russians at the World Juniors. I will now take this time to note that the World Juniors were hosted in Halifax, and I was at the gold medal game :)

I don't care really, but it was nice to see Denmark beat the US and draw with Canada in the first full "A" series we played in.

I was disappointed when they only tied Denmark. I didnt watch the game, but from the highlights I saw the goalie was spectacular.

Tournaments like this are always more important to European teams, since the NHL Playoffs are taking place in NA, but the Canadian's just like any other nation, have pride when they play for their country, and its great to see that.

An exciting game to watch, but at least it didnt go to a shootout. As I predicted Canada won the GOLD. GOOOOOOO CANADA.

What a performance by Luongo, and Carter. The sweedes played a great game, but Canada prevailed.
