Team Canada played Switzerland and this game was alot closer at the start,however Canada did score first.
Canada had a very effective cycle game in the offensive zone and that most likely wore the Swiss team down.
The goalie for Switzerland Benjamin Conz is a VERY good goaltender,he faces alot of shot each night and keeps his team in the game(as much as he can.) I am surprised that he is undrafted.
Nazem Kadri continued to have a battle going all game long with Nino Niederreitter. Speaking of the LEAFS Brian Burke was in the CUC for both games watching Nazem Kadri and Jerry D'Amigo and every time they showed Burke on the jumbotron he was booed. C'mon I know that MANY people HATE the Maple Leafs but at least show some class!!!!!!!! It is not easy being an NHL general manager.
Ok back to the game!!! Canada won the game 6-1. I think that Canada will play USA in the gold medal game.... someone please correct me if I am wrong.
In the second game USA VS Sweden. The game was close until the 3rd period when the Americans put the game out of reach by scoring an empty net goal, defeating the Swedish team by a count of 5-2. In fact the Swedish team held the US in check pretty much most of the game but in the final period it started to slip away for them. Leafs prospect Jerry D'Amigo looked good in this game and was named the player of the game for his team.
The Blades played Tri City in their 2nd last game against the US teams on their trip,Gaelan Patterson scored a hat trick as the Blades went on to beat the Americans (from Tri City ......well Kenniwick Washington, if you want to be 100% correct.) by a score of 6-4. The Blades will play out the remainder of the trip in Spokane on Tuesday and against Kootenay in Cranbrook on Wednesday.
