August hockey may not be as good as December hockey.
But it's still hockey.
Go hockey.

I assume they ensured all the players were COVID vaccinated.

To get into Canada, they have to be.

I see that the Latvians are applying the "goalie stands on head; wait for an opportunity" strategy with success.

The original tournament was cancelled after 3 or 4 days due to Covid hitting multiple teams causing a health problem and a competitive balance problem. They rescheduled it for now.

/For all other changes, see the 2nd post from yesterday's thread.

Canada did eventually win that quarter-final at the 2014 Olympics, they just had to throw 57 shots at the Latvian net to do it.

They are playing their typical first-game-of-the-tournament wear-down-the-supposedly-inferior-opponent-with-physical-play game until they get tired and give up a bunch of goals.
Latvia is playing well for a team that is not supposed to be in the game (or the tournament). But Canada is clearly better and should get better as things go on.

According to the TSN website, the shot count is 30:9 after two periods.

The Latvian goalies save percentage was .940 when it was 1-1.
It's now .860

Canada's new strategy: take lots of penalties and let Latvia back into the game.

I get the feeling that this is going to be more like 1866 than 1938.
