So I was wrong about Slovakia beating the Czechs. But by God I wasn't wrong about Slovakia surprising some folks. Unfortunately for the Russians, they were the victims. Jaroslav Halak has gotten used to being hung out to dry by a crappy Habs team, so facing off against two awesome Russian lines and two not so great lines was a piece of cake.
And in other Olympic news, Canada is nowhere near as good as they would like to think, and the Swiss are a very good team that folks still seem to underestimate.
