    Russia will handle Denmark without drama, and Switzerland will beat Norway, despite the Norwegians having played very impressively throughout the tournament so far.

    Russia will win easily, Norway may be able to put up a fight though Switzerland will probably win.

    I dont see any surprises in group E which seems set with CZE, GER, FIN, RUS going to quarterfinals, group F seems a bit more open with Norway being able to steal a spot since they should win against France, so if they can get points against Switzerland you never know.

    I say Russia wins... and Switzerland. Could be tough and tight during both matches though... we never know.

    Will be interesting overall to see what happens. I mean I don't expect Slovakia to make it - but let's see... and can Germany go on like that? I doubt it, honestly - even if they go to QF.

    And what is about Canada, USA, Sweden... will they dominate... or will Norway, Switzerland make them skate and run for everything - interesting.

    Switzerland exchanged a Defence-Player...

    Goran Bezina is out for shoulder-injury. John Gobbi (HC Servette, like Bezina) replaces him.

    LOL..............this tournament just continues to surprise me and everyone else, which is actually great.

    It's awesome to see the "lower" teams be so competitive.

    I still doubt that Denmark can hold off the Russians for another 40 minutes though.

    Look at Norway - a 2-0 lead on the Swiss!

    Nabokov shouldn't play if Russia wants to get somewhere...

    exactly, they're just making it even more difficult on themselves, Nabokov looks shaky/rusty and it affects the whole team

    Nabokov notwithstanding, it appears Russia has finally grabbed control of this game.
    4-2 with less than 15 minutes to go and Russia holding a wide edge in SOG.

    Nabokov got injured, that's bad news for Czech team for the next match, hope he'll be ok.

    Good night for both Denmark and Norway.

    Denmark played a good game, but where is Russia? Where is Morozov and Kovalchuk? I am surprised by Russias lack of spirit, it's like going back in time five years or so.

    Morozov played today quite good game. I don't understand Bykov, which lonely keep on goal Nabokov, which hasn't looked good during this tourmant. Maybe today's injury eliminate him from next games and it would be good for Russia and bad for Czech Rep. and Finland.
    Bo gdyby, ach gdyby wszystko na tym świecie dało się rostrzygać na lodowiskach, w trzech tercjach, kijem i krążkiem, to nie tylko wszak kanadyjskim zawodowcom z NHL, nie tylko wiarołomnym antysocjalistycznym Czechom, ale całemu światu, ba, nawet duszmanom z Pandższiru, Heratu i Kandaharu spuściłaby tęgi a druzgocący wpierdol hokejowa reprezentacja ZSRR, a w jej składzie Ragulin, Fetisow, Kasatonow oraz, bladź, Kapustin, Golikow i Malcew.

    everybody saying that russa sucks, but how many games they are actually lost... ;) you expect them to win 10-0 every game, right? i know their roster is good ON PAPER, but give their opponents some credit, thanks.

    it was good night for norway, but it was bad for denmark, they are most likely out now, if we are thinking which teams advance to the QFs.

    Also, last year had the "Olympic effect", most top teams had even weaker teams than this year and I think most expected that those "crazy" results would not continue beyond 2010.
