A Scandinavian semifinal and a North American semifinal.

The Slavs are out of metal contention.

I don't know why these are spoilers. The game was played live on television.

The Canada-Latvia game was controversial. Canada scored the winning goal on a power play resulting from a non-existent penalty; earlier, Latvia's Sotnieks grabbed the puck and tucked it under the goalie, which should have resulted in a penalty shot for Canada.

Kristers Gudlevskis almost died of rubber poisoning in goal for Latvia. 57 shots for Canada.

That was a breeze. Now for the floppy heads.

Canada nearly lost to Latvia, so we should crush the Canucks.

Slovak Republic = official name
Slovakia = commonly refered to:)

The history of the region is full of wars over religious misunderstandings & misspellings:)

As much as I am pro-Team USA....do NOT count your chickens before they’re hatched. I am very serious. The Canadians can and have surprised people.

You’re right, it’s also Slovakia. Just wanted to point our that Slovaks have Slovak Republic just as Czechs have Czech Republic. I visited both before the split.

Gudlordskis!

Kudos to Sabres' coach Ted Nolan for his fine work behind the Latvian bench ...

Present-day Slavic people are classified into East Slavic (chiefly Belarusians, Russians and Ukrainians), West Slavic (chiefly Czechs, Poles, Slovaks and Wends, or Sorbs), and South Slavic (chiefly Bosniaks, Bulgarians, Croats, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs and Slovenes).

And None of them are winning a Men’s Hockey Medal at Sochi.
