    I think the Russians will come as favorites against the Chechs to the Bronze Medal game. However, it could turn out to be much tighter than expected. Sure hope so. Giving the very best they've got,...

    The Swiss made an upset in QF and another upset in SF. Two in row, so were these upsets in the first place? Well, given the rosters of both Fin and Can, yes they were. But indeed, Swiss played...

    Correct, by roughly one meter.

    1840

    Quite a pity, given the difference it made to the game result. I think the NHL's coaches challenge rule would be welcome to IIHF as well.

    Pp for Fins, 3-2 now. Kamenev, C of Russians, totally lost it. Hit the official and got 10+20. What a shame, such a great team otherwise.

    7 minutes left in the 3rd period of the final, 2-2. Pp for Fin.
