    This Canadian team has done nothing to impress me. They are going to be in tough with any of the top teams in the tourney. Czechs beat them handily and then were ousted by a decent but not a top echelon US squad(And a hot goalie).

    Prediction 3-2 Finland.

    i'm also inclined towards a low scoring game. 2-1, 3-1 come to mind but I dont see either team as being better than the other by a space of 2 goals. A lot depends on how well Luongo and Noronen play..

    2-1 to either side.

    When the CZE-CAN game was nearing its end, I was happy with the upcoming result in the sense that Canada seemed like a more suitable opponent for Finland, but just as soon as the game ended, the painful memories since 1993 flowed to my mind and I realized "No, wait... it's Canada!" I've been hammering the panic button for the last two days, still not over the defeat in Lillehammer.

    I hardly see Finland scoring three goals, only Noronen can save the day.

    I'm a Finnish Canadian so when these games come up i'm always torn, but whomever wins i'll be happy for, and hope they take gold.

    Great start by Finland. Now I only hope the Finnish players don't become too defensive :)
