    Should be a great game.
    I have the Czechs as the favorite to win the tournament actually.

    Prediction: 4-2 Czech Republic

    Although it was only one game (against Canada), I think it's evident the Finns will have some problems scoring in this tournament. I think the Czechs will pull out a 3-1 victory.

    I don't think the Finns will lose two games in a row in front of the home crowd. 5-2 Finland.

    If the Finns can get themselves together and generate some chances, they'll have a shot, but Schwartz is supposed to be a pretty good goalie!

    Czech Republic 2, Finland 0

    3-1 Czechs. Finland, goaltending aside, can't compete with the Czechs in almost any area. They'll make it interesting and make the Czechs think, but that's about it.

    Should be a close game. I think the Czechs will edge them 2-1. This would set up a huge game with Canada on the 31st to see who wins the group.

    I'm expecting a relatively thight game. Finns want to win this badly, and playing home and all they will presure Czechs hard early on.

    Good call, you even got the score right.

    The game broadcast ended in Finland about 10 minutes ago. Some notes:

    - both Czech goals were flukes, especially the first one. A bit like the one Russia scored last year, except Toivonen was also screened on the play.

    - Finns played much better than against Canada, you could say that we were on our normal level.

    - our powerplay sucked, we really could've used a right handed shot on the blueline. Atleast we got the tying goal (Lepistö slapper from the blue line)

    - Finland's first goal should've been awarded to Varakas, coz he was the last Finn to touch it (according to Töykkälä). All credit shoud still go to the Czech d-man who put it into his own net.

    - the gamewinner we can also thank a czech d-man for. Careless play behind his own net, Bergenheim poke checks the puck towards the goal, Filppula pokes it in before the goalie knows what's happening.

    Overall, a deserved win for the Little Lions. We were closer to a 4th goal inthe 3rd period than the Czechs were of an equaliser, though they did get a couple of good shots before the end.
