    Pastrnak and Krejci show us a hockey from another galaxy. But in USA squad, Kane with Gaudreau can win a match themselves, also.

    I am really excited before this game. It will be probably best quarterfinale(Yes, better than Canada vs. Russia).

    I can't bring myself to be too optimistic here... We have inexperienced and not very skilled D, combined with some great offensive talent on team USA, this could end up in blowout defeat for us. If our D shows up and will give a flawless performance it should be a close game which could go either way, if the D won't show their best it might be painful to watch for Czech fans.

    On one side loyalty to my country and Charlie McAvoy

    On the other, the Bruins brightest young star in Pastrnak (love you too Krejci)

    How can I choose :help:

    The Czechs got a legit chance to win this; won vs Russia in OT, and has a deadly first line. Wouldn't count them out. 4-3 Czechs

    This one will go to USA, I think they are the biggest candidates to win the tournament. Group B is in another tier compared to the group A and I believe USA, Canada and Finland will medal in this tournament

    It'll probably be a 2-2 tie with US winning in the shootout.

    I say the Czechs take it 5-3. Pasternak and Krejci will probably be the main factor.

    I can totally see the Czechs winning this if not in regulation, then in a shootout.

    here is to a clean, exciting game with no injuries! proud of all the guys that gave a **** from all countries to be here, especially these Boston and Nashville cats who came after some pretty intense series while others couldn't be bothered with a month break before this started.

    I always liked the Czech teams, I think both teams will play a bit high octane which is only great for us fans!! US takes it 4-3 in regulation....HERE WE GO!!
