    I think USA will win this one quite comfortably despite Slovakia's great play in the game against Russia.

    Prediction:
    5-2 USA

    A much stiffer test than Austria, but I still think the U.S. will pull out a victory. I say 4-2.

    Watch Halak just stone the US.

    3-1 Slovaks.

    That's certainly a possibility. My main concern however isn't the U.S. scoring, but staying disciplined and not taking an excessive amount of penalities. If the U.S. can avoid that, and capitalize on what I believe will be an ample number of chances I think they will pull out a comfortable victory.

    3-1 US with the last goal being an empty netter. Halak will keep the Slovaks in it but the US will outplay them.

    4-3 USA. Lets hope this one doesn't end in a tie, and so that Russia has less of a chance of winning the pool. :D

    This is going to sound simply bananas, but Slovakia 5-2. I say they score first and they score last and both, as hinted at above, will be on the pp - the US has shown no signs of settling down, and it's going to cost them sooner or later. Why not tomorrow morning?
    Of course, I could be completely wrong.

    USAHockey on their radio link had this game at 9, luckily I checked at 8, and the game is just about to start. I'm recording the game (audio) and will upload it after the game if anyone misses it. I plan to do that for all the USA games. I did the Austria game, but the audio didn't come out well, and plus, it was 8-0 :)
