Two Days Later…

It is amazing what can happen in two days time. 48 hours ago, Canada was coming off of a very disappointing loss to the Americans, and were looking ahead to must win games against Germany, Russia and Sweden. Their defense was shaky, their goaltender was being replaced and their offense could not find a rhythm. Today, Canada is now the odds on favorite to win this tournament. Coming in to the Games, the top three teams were thought to be Canada, Russia and Sweden; the latter two were eliminated yesterday. Now all that stands in Canada’s way are the surprising Slovakians, and one of two offensively challenged teams in the US or Finland. Canada is now rolling on all cylinders, and there is no chance that any of these players will be taking the Slovaks lightly tomorrow night. They have already faced their adversity. Now the are rolling on all cylinders and ready for the push that will win them the gold medal for the second time in eight years.
