FINLAND 5 - 1 BELARUS
I told you I was all over that Belarus.
Your favorite Red Wing and my closet-favorite Red Wing scored a goal in this one. Check out Fil going all Holmstrom to pick one up for the Fins. And also check out Olli Jokinen, who has apparently stolen Wendel Clark's mustache. NBC/The Olympics are tools in that I can't embed video, so I'm settling for the far less appealing link. It's Jay Leno's fault.
There was a ton of hockey action on last night. However, I'm getting old and somehow fell asleep at like 10 o'clock. I was so confused. I mean, hell, you all see the 4 a.m. timestamps on some of these posts; a 10 pm bedtime was enough to make me think I had been roofied.
So while I was sleeping I missed Peter Forsberg, Jaromir Jagr, and Uwe Krupp. Or the year 1996, in other words. Highly disappointing. The Swedes won a tough one with Germany 2-0 and the Czechs beat the Slovaks 3-1. My sources tell me that Marian Hossa has already signed a new deal to join the Czech Republic.
