Russia and Sweden: Top chalk to meet in semifinals
For the lack of a better term, the “A Side” quarterfinal playoff games feature Russia vs Finland and Sweden vs. Slovakia. Finland and Sweden both received a bye into the playoffs while Russia defeated Norway and Slovenia blanked Austria, both by 4-0 scores, in qualifying action yesterday. Of the four remaining teams, the Swedes and the Big Red Machine possess the superior talent and we see them meeting in the semifinals.
USA and Canada are favorites versus the Czechs and Latvia
Following “B Side” playoff qualifying games, that saw the Czech Republic hang on for a 5-3 win over Slovakia and Latvia stun Switzerland with a 3-1 victory, the USA clashes with the Czechs while Canada faces Latvia today. Canada has to like the fact that they won’t face the defensively minded Swiss squad while the USA will need to be at their best versus the Czech Republic. USA vs. Canada will be a hockey fans dream semifinal.
