Time for revenge, 2-1 for Switzerland!
Wake when the important games begin.
4-1 to Sweden
Will be a tough fight. 2:2
Another boring game, 4-1 Sweden.
Tough game ... 3:1 or 2:0 for SWE Magnus Johansson on the scoreboard
I hope for a point for SUI.
I don't expect SUI will suddenly start to score, especially against SWE.
On the other hand, I have great confidence in the SUI defence and goalie, so it's possible to keep the SWE scoring low.
Nice move by Zetterberg made Aebischer look like a tool.
International tournament and they can't make fscking ice?
Huge block of ice came off and the game is standing.
The coaches of both teams are standing around together and having a laugh.
The game is off. The players are leaving.
They are fixing the ice and hoping to start the game again still today.
Is that what they call ice cream?
What, are the kidding? They can't get some proper ice? Move the Worlds elsewhere!
Can someone explain exactly what happened to the ice?
It's amazing they can't make playable ice this day and age in pool A hockey.
I mean they had the div. 3 world championships in Mexico a few years ago without any ice-problems, for crying out loud.
The games should only be held in the top-8 hockey countries, then we wouldn't have to see this.
Sure, way to grow the sport...
The game will continue shortly.
The rink is converted from an exhibition hall. There is no concrete foundation but a sand bed and sheets of aluminum on top of that. Regular ice thickness can't be upheld due to Zamboni weight shifting the sheets. The ice is near triple thickness to counter that, and there fore is difficult to freeze properly. Finally, it's apparently summer heat in Riga right now.
Not the best conditions to play a hockey tournament under.
