    could be an interesting game. i don't know what to expect from USA. they're pretty much a gamble.

    i say 5-3 czech, because of home advantage and a better performance so far.

    After seeing Canada get womped I don't know what to think about this match-up. I think the Czechs will pull it out, but it won't be a blowout. 5-3, with the 5th goal being an empty netter. If the U.S.'s defense stays tight, whoever's in goal is sharp, and there is timely scoring, the U.S. could surprise.

    Vokoun has been super sharp for the Czechs, we'll see if his old American NHL buddies can fare better against him that the rest of the world has.

    Well Czechs should win, they´ve been very impressive so far. Usa can win only if they can keep the home team away from the scoreboard = frustrate them. (And score at least once)

    Czech Republic - USA 4-1

    Looks fairly even so far. 15 shots apiece just starting the 2nd period. No score.

    I kind of expected the Czech to lose, it's the pressure of having to win at home!

    Does that Roach goal count on the stats sheet? What if every player ahead of him had scored on their penalty shots?

    That was easyly the best game of tournament. Jan Hlavac will always remember his own goal (2-2 for USA).

    Prague must be a quiet place tonight.

    USA vs Sweden. Interesting matchup, and two teams thata will work hard to get a win. Sweden was the best team last time, but NA teams usually gets better throughout a tournament. Will be a good game!
