Russia, Canada to Play For Gold
Team Russia (a.k.a. Team Capitals) just crushed Finland, 4-0, to earn a spot in Sunday's gold medal game.
From CP's gamer:
Saku Koivu was unable to handle a pass at the Russian blue-line and Alexander Semin jumped on the puck to start a 3-on-1 with Washington teammates Alexander Ovechkin and Fedorov. Four pinpoint passes later, Fedorov shot Semin's pass into an open side behind a helpless Niklas Backstrom.
Unfortunately, I was still in the process of logging on and missed the goal. Lesson learned. I'll make sure to log in early on Sunday, when Russia faces the winner of today's other semifinal between Canada and Sweden. Russia will be seeking its first IIHF world championship since 1993.
Update:Russia will face Canada, 5-4 winners over Sweden. Mike Green's second period power play goal proved to be the game winner.
