Canada vs Czechs Game #2

With the Fins upset of Team USA, this game takes on much more importance, they can get a bye without even beating USA if they beat Denmark (easy win) and the Czechs (not so easy) tonight. Nice to see the Wedger get the start tonight....I'm sure every Canadian (besides Visitins family...lol) want to see Wedger get a solid game behind him and not look back. I'm thinking to steal the job he has to be not only spectacular but mistake free....a tall order. Let's hope Stone Cold (apparently a new nickname from Canadians on Twitter...lol) has some more magic up his sleeves. Expect a better effort from Howden, Connolley and Scheiffle (sp...lol) who were not bad but a little quiet against the Fins.

Think it's very cool that Canada is wearing the retro jersey's tonight! It's in honour of the 1982 Team that won the Gold Medal. Don't know if anyone else remembers, but when Canada won that year, they could not find Oh Canada to play over the speaker system, so the team sang it loud and proud....touching off a tradition carried on to this day. Many think it was that touching rendition of the anthem that propelled this tournament into the extravaganza it is today. Ironically enough, that year was also the last time Canada had brothers on it....Mike and Randy Moller, believe Randy scored the winner in 82 also. Just a nice touch of class by Team Canada officials!!

Wedgewoods pass would have made Hextall proud, and really opened the game up for Canada after an incredible performance by the Czech 'tender. Nice to see the Colts combine for 2g 2a. The 2nd pass by Pearson had "linemate" written all over it. The only way it's at all a game against Denmark is if they're sleeping. Bring on the US on New Years!
