Last night, Team USA walloped Germany 6-0, while Team Russia pounded Switzerland 7-0.  A night of shutouts indeed. 

Speaking of the Russia/Switzerland tilt, Switzerland defenceman Phil Baltisberger (Guelph Storm) was sent flying after being hit by Russian forward Anatoly Golyshev.  Baltisberger was carried on a stretcher to hospital but was later deemed okay by team spokespeople.
Possible disciplinary action by the IIHF commitee may be meted out to Golyshev.

Attendance for the tournament is much better in Toronto than Montreal.

As of yesterdays games, the attendance in Toronto is ~13,300 and ~9,600 in Montreal and Montreal has the Team Canada games.

Team Canada defeated Team Finland 4-1 as the line of Sam Reinhart, Anthony Duclair and Max Domi led the way.

Reinhart with 2 goals, Duclair and Lazar with one apiece.

Canada's next and last opponent of the round-robin is against USA -- Connor McDavid versus Jack Eichel -- with first place at stake.
Game is Wednesday.

I'd be so tempted to offer up Kessel to Phoenix for Domi. First big step in a rebuild.

Ease up there. Jordin Tootoo looked awesome at the World Juniors too. If they're trading Kessel...they better get more.

Haven't watched much of this so far, but will tune in for US-CAN. Excited to see Eichel vs. McDavid. Last year I thought that Eichel had the advantage, but McDavid didn't get much playing time then.

Seriously. As much as I've been harping about Kessel's play think there would be a whole lot more heading our way.

Detroit's scouting and draft record has come under a bit of flack in recent years for not being as good as it's reputation would say it is, but they've made two pretty fantastic picks in Mantha and Larkin the past couple of drafts.

Very entertaining 1st period. A lot of scoring opportunities and some bad blood brewing between the two teams.

I always hate watching NHL right after because it seems so comparatively slow, even though it's not, or at least understandably so.

30 combined shots in the 1st period. Don't see that very often in the NHL.

Don't we watch that on a nightly basis?  23 shots for the opposition and 7 shots for the Leafs.
