    I hadn't even checked who they were playing. With only 10 teams in the top pool, I figured they'd have at least another contender to play against, like at the U20's. Looks like they'll destroy them...

    It's hard to say without exactly knowing who will make the cut, but they should be able to at least get to the #8 spot and stay up, like they did in Ottawa. Even this team would have done better than...

    The Championship webshop is now open. Most of the lower ranked team have slight modifications to their jerseys. Once again it pisses me off that the merchandiser can't get Latvia's flag right. They...

    In Latvia's case they were playing with only two guys that are not on Dinamo Riga, who've just finished playing a game every two days for nearly a month. They're tired and need a rest instead of...

    I just don't see that point of this game. Both teams played with replacements on big ice. That's hardly going to help any of them once they get to Vancouver. At least it gave Latvia's back up goalies...

    Just noticed the shots on goal for the first 19-1 for Latvia. Masalskis better face more shots or he'll end up with an ugly save percentage.

    The score is, but I think that Hungarian goal was the only time I saw them in Latvia's zone. I'm sure it will open up a bit in the second. At least I hope it will.
