    I am loving this Russian team, another very good win and they keep rolling. Lets see what facing Yashin shots does against Canada. :) Honestly, I just hope they put up a good fight.

    On the other hand, I am disappointed in this Swiss team, they cant build off the success they had last year. Should beat the Germans for 5th.

    I saw the Swiss play twice live, against Finland and Saturday against the Russians.
    I thought the score flattered them against the Finns as they were completely outplayed the final 40 minutes.
    Against Russia, though, I thought they had a legitimate chance as the Russians were not that dominant.
    It's too bad they won't be playing for a medal this year but they were competitive against what
    I think are the two best European teams here, Russia and Finland.
    The REAL disappointment is Sweden.
    Seven years ago, the Swedes shocked the hockey world by winning silver at the Turin Olympics,
    the only European country to interrupt the Canada-USA monopoly on gold and silver.
    That was sandwiched between Sweden's only two bronze medals in 2005 and 2007.
    The Swedes also have six 4th place finishes at the worlds, the last in 2009.
    However this year has been a catastrophe, as the Swedes find themselves in a struggle
    just to avoid relegation against the upstart Czech team, which I believe is making their WWHC debut
    Granted, they lost the backbone of the team, Kim Martin, before the tournament and the roster has
    turned over greatly with much of it comprised of players under 22 years of age.
    But it seems that Swedish women's hockey is regressing, which, after nearly a quarter century of
    international competition for women, is really discouraging.

    Or is it encouraging that the long-time Scandinavian stranglehold on bronze is ending? It is disappointing to see the Swedes struggle like this. Eleven years ago, the Swedish federation was going to end funding for the women's program due to lack of results so maybe they need to pick things up soon; not least of all because they host the WW in 2015!

    On the same side, it could be a worry that Russia is only doing well in the lead up to their home Olympics and that their progress will falter after 2014. The best of their roster aren't really spring chickens; Pashkevich is 40, Burina 33, Petrovskaya is almost 33, and Smolentseva is closing in on 32. The next tier of players aren't too young either given the typically short careers in women's hockey. Alexandrova, Kapustina, Gavrilova, and Vafina are all over 22.

    Congrats to Sweden, they sweep the relegation series with the Czechs sending the Czechs back to Division IA. Despite finishing with a record of 1-4, the Czechs never look terrible and they played well, just missing that extra something to help keep them afloat. They should be able to keep improving just is how long it will take them to get out of Division IA since the top half of that Group is full of countries who are coming along nicely.

    As for Sweden, I really hope this is just a one off event because they really shouldnt be competing in relegation especially considering where they have been in the past. Reading around (not sure how much truth there is) but this might start becoming the norm for them and one year will end up getting relegated due to more and more women choosing football or handball.

    Canada 8 Russia 1
    Oddly, Canada led only 1-0 after one period, despite being all over
    the Russians, out shooting them 20-4.
    The second period was a lot more even territorially, with Canada holding
    only a 17-12 SOG advantage, but the Russian goaltender, so steady and
    confident in the first period, was shaky at times letting in a few softies
    and Canada buried Russia 5-1 in the period.
    The third period was pretty quiet, as Canada didn't seem especially interested
    in running up the score and the Russians were looking a little tired trying
    to maintain pace with the Canadians.

    Funny that Germany's Best Three Players awards were scooped up by a forward, Franziska Busch, and both goaltenders, Viona Harrer and Jennifer Harss. I would wager that's not happened before.

    Happy to see Russia leave this tournament with a medal, watched all their matches and they were fun to watch, good to see their hard work earned them a medal. Not that Finland didnt deserve one, just wasnt cheering for them.

    Very excited for tonight though, should be amazing. See if the Americans can get revenge for last year.

    Congrats to the Americans on the gold medal, they reverse the story from last year and hand Canada their first even Silver medal on home ice.

    Was another great match between these two, the speed of the Americans tonight, wow and that goal from Kessel. Canada needed to be more disciplined, the penalties really killed them. I know people want to jump on Wickenheiser and I know so wasnt that impressive when she played but I will give her a break due to injuries. That ending was crazy though, really thought Canada was going to end up tying this match. Overall, this was a great year

    Wickenheiser probably should not have even played, but I was disappointed
    with her younger team mates.
    The Americans really took the play to Canada and the 16 SOG that Canada
    could only muster was telling.
    I didn't think Canada played with enough desperation and only in the last
    few minutes of the game did they take the play to the Americans.
    That's five out of the last seven for the States...the tide certainly seems to be turning.

    Record crowd for the Final, an average audience of 795,000 and overall, 3,6 million people watched some part of the match.

    http://www.tsn.ca/canadian_hockey/story/?id=420420

    I wonder if these stats include the people on fasthockey or just from the television. Either way, a bunch of people watched a great match.
