    Canada's game against Switzerland today at 11:00 am Pacific Time (2:00 eastern), is on Sportsnet. I don't get Sportsnet, only TSN and the Score. Does anyone know where I can watch the game on the web?? Thanks SSOO much in advance!

    This is the weirdest hockey game ever. Team Canada is getting beaten by Canadians - Nash, Thorton, and St. Louis. lol

    This is probably one of the best team canada ever to play the spengler cup. I have never seen them dominate teams as they have done in these first two games, with lost of scoring chances and great chemistry. Eventhough they are losing at the moment, I'm sure a lot of canadians are very impress with their game.

    As for thorton, nash and st.louis... you can definitely tell they are NHL players. Position wise and skill level. For example the puck goes into the corner of team canada and st.louis is flat footed while the canadians defensemen has speed. Instead of going after the puck st. louis leans into the canadian player and hits him before he goes after the puck to create time and space. Most non nhl players would go for the puck first. St. Louis thus recovers the puck and creates another scoring chance.

    2-0 davos so far....

    It's 2-0 Davos after the first period. Rizzi and Nash are the scorers.

    Rick Nash and Joe Thornton are very strong tonight...

    Jonas Hiller ? Dunno... he is a young goaltender... he's ok. Not great but ok and he's doing a good tournament so far.

    As for Thornton, no points but a very strong presence that's for sure.

    1-0 : Rizzi
    2-0 : Nash (Riesen)
     
  13. Very weird seeing Thornton, Nash, and St. Louis playing against Canada. :joker:

    He's good. You can see he has NHL future, that's for sure.

    The first goal was a breakaway (great play by Rizzi) and the second goal came from behind the goal and Nash maked it a one-timer. Auld couldn't do anything.

    I"d love to be there. The atmosphere is amazing and the game is decent to watch, except for the fact that Canada can't hit the net.

    It was the last seconds of the period, they were lucky but it was deserved as they worked hard to come back in the game.

    So.. 2-1 Davos after 2 periods.

    Yes.

    I'm impressed, this has been a very entertaining game, very wide-open and back-and-forth. 2-2 tie now with about 3:30 left.

    Man the way Auld is playing I would trade Cloutier without hesitating. He really has improved big time.

    Wow, I don't remember seeing so many missed shots on a shoot out. The ice must've been terrible.

    Regardless, Auld did a fantastic job in net for team Canada. He made some huge saves.
