    I just got a look at the stats, and the Czechs outshot Canada 33-16.

    Now, I don't remember a game where Canada was held to 16 shots in a best on best tourney.

    Is that an all-time low if we look at all the Canada/World Cups and the Olympics since 1998?

    PS. It may sound like bashing, but it's not. I just want to know the stats. :help:

    Yet the 16 shots were all they needed. It is surprisingly low though. :eek:

    They don't want to run up the score and give HF posters fodder to bash Canada :D

    the win might be a very bad thing for canada. it may seem that they are back on track, but they were outplayed for most of the game. and a few pucks were very close to crossing canada's line. canada still isn't up to standards.

    w/o vokoun's 2 very soft goals, czechs win it. czechs played well i thought, other than a few bad turnovers. the 2nd-4th lines played well, much better than they had been.

    this was the best game of the tournament.

    Canada came out hard, but once they got the 3-0 lead they stopped playing aggressively and let the Czechs come. Sitting on a lead may work for a lot of European teams, but that is not Canadian hockey and is the reason the game was so uneven in the last 40 minutes. I think the win was good for Canada to build a little confidence, while still clearly highlighting a number of things on which they need to improve.

    If Vokoun doesn't have a terrible game Canada loses badly.

    Badly? Without the very weak Cajanek goal at the start of the 3rd the Czechs score 1 goal in the game. How is that losing badly?

    Huh? Cajanek's goal was weak, the first goal was a fortunate 5 on 3. But nevermind how they happened...losing 2-0 (at the worst) is losing "badly"?

    Hardly.

    Canada might be (usually) the very best forechecking team. Right now, they are DUMPING the damn puck without pursuing it... It's really mind boggling how this team is coach right now.

    Horrible by all accounts.

    Why aren't all these people making excuses for the Czechs being called whiners like we were for the last 3 days?

    The only way Canada loses badly if Brodeur played like Vokoun did.

    they were badly outplayed. how the team plays is much more important than a win, at this stage.
    canada has been mediocre for most of the tourney.

    The reason they had so little shots is because the only played in the 1st period. I belive they only had 1 or 2 shots in the 3rd. I am a little worried going into the QF tomorrow.

    Everyone's making excuses for them though, aren't they?

    And whoever said my post is whining, how is asking a question whining? I'm curious. Double standards piss me off.

    Winning is what's important.

    If they hadn't scored 3 goals in the first, they probably wouldn't have played the way they did in the 2nd and 3rd periods.

    They wanted to score, they wanted to score on the PP, and they wanted to win.

    Mission accomplished.

    And they even got a nice performance from Brodeur as well.

    Lots of good things to focus on.
