Strive for Five Still Alive


    Quick question: Does anyone still have their fingernails? Wow. Only a few words can really sum this whole thing up: Exciting, Thrilling, and What the hell? Back and forth, topsy-turvy. If they were trying to sell a reason to watch the next game, they just did it. Unfortunately, sloppy defensive plays, slow reactions, and, at times, suspect goaltending led us into a shootout where Tokarski’s short stature did not affect his solid performance. He looked like a wall in the net; it’s why Kugryshev saw all posts and no net. Hopefully, Canada’s earlier performances in the tournament is the one that shows up on Monday, and not the sluggish-through-the-gate club we’ve witnessed in the last two matchups. My heart is still pounding. Go Canada Go!
