USA vs Switzerland - USA advances to the semi-final with a 2-0 win
Jonas Hiller was amazing, like we expected.
But somehow, Ryan Miller was better.
Both USA goals were scored by Zach Parise, power play goal and empty net goal. Hey, it still counts.
And then Bobby Ryan was hit.
Hiller deserved a better fate. He had 44 shots on him which was ridiculous. We don't believe that Miller even had as many shots on him as they said he did.
Canada vs Russia - Canada advances to the semi-final with a 7-3 win
Um, talk about ridiculous. Canada just blew Russia out of the water in the first period. It was like Russia had no idea how to play hockey.
Shea Weber and Jonathan Toews were all over Alex Ovechkin. Just like they were told to do.
We felt bad for Evgeni Nabokov because we like him but just the fact that he made the stunned face after each Canada goal just told us that he wasn't prepared for the onslaught.
And of course Ryan Getzlaf had to take the beating too far by egging on Evgeni Malkin from the bench.
What a surprising and crazy game.
Finland vs Czech Republic - Finland advances with a 2-0 win
The game was hard-fought, literally. Scoring chances were far and few. It took almost three periods for someone to score.
Niklas Hagman opened the scoring with a deflection goal that was sweet.
We're sorry Czech Republic.
Slovakia vs Sweden - Slovakia advances with a 4-3 win
Um, who else is surprised about the outcome of this game? No one else but Noodles picked Slovakia to make it past the quarterfinals.
Any sane person would have picked Sweden.
Slovakia scored two goals in the second period in thirty-seven seconds. Then Sweden scored two goals in succession to tie it up.
Then Slovakia took the lead in the third. But that didn't last long as Sweden tied it up.
The last four minutes of the game was all Sweden. Jaroslav Halak had his work cut out for him. He was the man of the game, making save after save.
