    I say Canada got tired from today's game and won't be able to fix their defense in time.... 3-3

    Few d-mens at team Canada looked really unsure. We should hit on them. Shouray was one of them. He really can't find his game on big ice. How did he play in Sweden?

    Only problem is how to stop Thornton-Nash? Timonen, Nummelin, Niemi... anyone? We are in trouble.

    Canada win if Luongo play, I know he have been training with goalies guru Francois Allaire under the lockout. And I think it have pay off as Luongo was very good in the games he was in.

    So in with Luongo :bow: and out with Brodeur :deadhorse

    I'm undecided. Surely Finland needs to improve on their scring to take that one to a draw. With the problems that Canada has with their defence the chanceswill be there. I hope for a finnish win.

    No team from this planet could beat Canada today, they simply won´t play two sloppy matches in row. And when one thinks what kind of Finland they are going to face... :shakehead

    Actually, if team Finland´s leadership has any senses thay´ll throw this game to preserve energy for important Latvia-match.

    I have mixed feelings about this game. Team Sweden showed that Team Canada isn't "a superteam" and can be won. On the other hand, Team Canada surely took a lesson from that and won't play another bad game. Team Finland has had more time to rest but then again, the team haven't played well at all. The USA game was good but not great. So, I think Team Finland will lose this game unfortunately. I won't predict any number but I'll say Team Canada will win with a clear margin.

    I think this will be ugly, unless Olli and Ossi pick up their physical games...

    What kind of attitude is this?
    I believe that Finland has a big benefit to this game because Canada played yesterday tough game against Sweden.

    Canada - Finland 1-4

    Nice to play patriot, but let's face the fact that our team is on the paper alot weaker than Canada. And our performance on the ice has been far away from the best. If Finland wins then I belive in medal on this tournament.

    This is going to be absolute slaughter, I expect Canada to win with atleast 3 goals and 5-goal victory wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Oh come on, don't be so pessimistic :p:

    I think Bäcks will improve from the US-game's 3rd period, and take some amazing catches today!

    3-3 for Finland ;)

    Was the Nash "incident" really a big deal? I haven't seen any mention of it anywhere here in the Canadian media. Perhaps it is a case of censorship?
