If I bet on a 4 leg parlay of Finland, Sweden, Canada, and USA all winning; I would have to bet almost $3 just to make a profit of $1. All 4 teams are massive favorites.

/Just to bet on Canada winning, I'd have to bet $200 to make a $1 profit

Dreadnought Lead for Finland, 2-0!

_/Coastal defense ship was the closest Finland ever came to having a dreadnought.

Undreaded, Germany gets one back.  2-1 Finns.
 
2022-08-17 12:33:05 PM  
Finland PPG, back to dreaded
 
2022-08-17 12:33:47 PM  
Back to Dreaded, Finland is now 2-for-2 on the power play.  3-1 Suomi.

Finland not looking nearly as dominant in the 3rd.
 
2022-08-17 2:02:49 PM  
Back to Dreaded, 4-2 Finland.  Germany was looking like they might have a chance until they went back to the box, the Finnish power play is deadly.

Latvia had a good first period against Sweden, but a power play let Sweden take the lead.  1-0 in the second.
 
2022-08-17 4:57:05 PM  
Latvia ties it!
 
2022-08-17 4:57:34 PM  
Latvia ties it with 1:14 left in the 2nd, 1 all!

Sweden gets a 5 minute power play though I didn't see what Latvia did to get the major penalty
 
2022-08-17 5:25:00 PM  
5 minute major and a game for a check to the head, Sweden power play.
 
2022-08-17 5:39:47 PM  
Sweden takes a 2-1 lead.  Combination of a well screened goalie and tired Latvian skaters due to icing.
 
2022-08-17 5:58:21 PM  
Latvia enters the Danger Zone and comes within a hair of tying it, but the bounce at the Swedish crease doesn't go their way and Sweden hangs on to win.

Ugh, no woman around tonight and a late start time for USA may as well be an excuse to eat like shiat with the first pizza in at least six months. Wake up around eleven and hope a stream can be found as we take on those pricks standing in our way from the Czech Republic who maybe a few days before I die if I'm lucky I'll finally stop wanting to call Czechoslovakia.

I thought of you a few days ago.

"I'm flattered, but ewwwwwwwww..."

No, not like that.

I was out and about when I saw what I believe was a C-47. I made sure to get a few seconds of it on video so I could confirm it later but when I checked out the video it ended a few minutes prior to when I saw the plane due to the juice having given out.

The distance and the quality of the video probably wouldn't have been good enough to confirm it but I figured I'd toss it your way if I couldn't reasonably do so myself.

Sweden wins, but Latvia did very well considering they weren't in the original tournament and only played in this one because of Putin's folly

The potential semifinal matchups because they reseed are as follows:

Finland v Canada/USA/Czechia
Sweden v Switzerland/USA/CZE

Bit of a mismatch on the game stats. If I was the Swedish coach I'd be worried about the lack of production on the power play.
 
2022-08-17 6:12:10 PM  
Actually, let me fix that semifinal thing

If CAN and USA win, the matchups are FIN v CAN, SWE v USA

If a miracle happens and one of those two lose, SWE would be the 2nd highest seed remaining and get Finland in the semifinals (other semi would be USA/CZE winner v CAN/SUI winner)

If somehow both USA and CAN lose, the semis would be SWE v SUI, FIN v CZE

True, but as someone used to pulling for teams that are completely outmatched; Latvia did fine all things considered.

Agreed. Their goalie might have a good path to the NHL with a .923 SV%
 
2022-08-17 6:22:56 PM  
Haven't looked at the stats, but a country like Latvia might find that more goalies and defence make the NHL than do forwards.
 
2022-08-17 7:10:19 PM  
It starts.

CAN 1-0 just 67 seconds in
 
2022-08-17 7:12:26 PM

Canada chases the Swiss (cheese) goalie from the net in the first period with 4 goals. But they need to keep the pressure on and not get sloppy. They got lazy at the end of that frame.

Yeah, they need to lose the idea that they can score their way out of trouble and ignore defence.

I wanted to see if there was a thread going....

Because my friend just sent me a video of "Dr. Doom catching lightning"... 0.65sec. SORRY... .065(!!!)sec(!!!)

Dude. In 5 years, that guy's NHL.

/Latvia/Latveria (it joins Denmark and Germany in Marvel. Dr. Doom, canonically, is the last of the "true" Scandi, and in honorable combat, took the title Sorceror Supreme from Dr. Strange by, literally, catching lightning.. Now you know.)
//I want a jersey if he gets nicked that.

Well, this game has been closer than anyone thought it would be.
Dagger into the empty Swiss net makes it 6-3 Canada with a minute to go.

Canada was favored by 5.5 goals so the game being so close is a small upset by itself

And the Czechs take the lead.  Off the post and in, 2-1 homeland of Jagr.
