Video – USA vs. Finland (fights), Canada vs. Slovakia (dives)

I’m very excited about the possibility of a CANADA vs. USA men’s hockey gold medal final in the 2010 Olympics. For this to happen USA will have to defeat Finland and Canada will have to defeat Slovakia.  I’m very surprised how many of the teams have performed, so rather than predicting who wins and what the score will be, I will predict this:

USA vs. Finland – Prediction: Fights

Canada vs. Slovakia – Prediction: Dives

Why? Because this is exactly what happened the last time these teams faced each other.

  2. People, must have to say that i watched at a couple of awesome games the last days. Although i have to comment that it isnt said the guys with the leaf will win easy from our team. Once again Canada had some good luck today from Slovakia. USA will win sunday with 6-2! Just a word: Hey Crosby! Get a laugh on your face you overprised player!

    Ice hockey is the life blood of Finland. It is much more popular than football (soccer). I look forward to next encounters with the United States and other rising countries in this sport!
