The junior team has a tall order in front of them, having to beat the Russians and then the winner of the Canada-CZE(Canada) game for the championship. Reading some of the forum commentary from Russian fans, they think our earlier win over the Russians(starring Peteski's greatest love-interest, after his doe-eyed reindeer, Comrade Ovechkin), was a fluke. Then, most people seem to agree that Canada is enjoying a decisive advantage in depth and skill, in this tournament.
We'll see, later on today. If the USA beats the Russkies, I'll have to jump 100% on the bandwagon, and predict a big win over the Canucks for the gold. Yep...we'll be doing the "Slo-Mo Team Saunter" with the boys, into the arena for the final game. After we win, there will be a slo-mo pileup over the goalie, Al Montoya. But first, after scoring the winning goal, Kessel will turn and look up into the capacity-filled stands, where he will instantly lock eyes with his estranged dad, who will nod his approval, freeing Kessel to join in the celebration.
