Too many penalties for team Canada (Camara and Lipon both with game miscoundacts), down 2-0 after 1, but got back into the game, leading 6-3 in the third. Reilly very good on power-play. 3 points (1+2) so far (1+1 on PP). Team Canada is being outshot by Slovaks - quite unusual.

1 - Rielly and Oulette should be playing more
2- Subban has to stop shrugging his shoulders after goals
3- Looks like Yakupov was correct.

Camara's hit was clean. :-( they weren't even calling a penalty until the Slovak was obviously injured (cut by his own visor as later described) Lipon's was a headshot.

My Mark Scheifele was Canadian player of the game. Deservedly so, he was everywhere.

Lipon´s hit was a ugly one - elbow to the head of the player who was without puck.

Camara´s hit was in my opinion clean one, however totaly devastating.

IIHF new policy - no hit to the head (area) is a clean hit - is pretty strict

Review for Lipon.  No review for Camara.

I guess Lipon gets further suspension, such as 3 games or so

Agreed. At least on your first two points. Up until the 2nd period this morning, Rielly has been largely marginalized by his lack of ice time. Subban has looked too uncomfortable in goal, and guys like Camara should be given less ice time. Coach Spott, and his staff have been "spotty" up to this point on their decision making. Hopefully they make the right adjustments before its too late.

With Boone Jenner still serving his suspension, and a with game misconducts to both Lipon and Camara, Canada's forwards were reduced to 10, but according to coach Steve Spott, it served to galvanize the team against Slovakia...

 "In an event like this, you've got to find different ways to win and tonight was about dealing with adversity early and staying true to our tasks," Canadian coach Steve Spott said. "I give our kids a lot of credit. They had to be resilient and ultimately find a way to win and they were able to do that."

Good to see Rielly and Ouellette have success. Early going but they're the dmen scoring leaders thus far.

How has Hamilton looked?

Both Hamilton and Scheifele 'flopped' in a desperate bid to get some power play advantages for Team Canada...and it worked!  'Flopping' a.k.a. diving.

Just watching Russia/Germany. Man, I know they aren't a bad team but they really don't make good hockey decisions. They had 3 breakaways against on their power play. Why throw it in the middle again after it was picked off?

I think that Camara's hit was dangerous but clean, I wouldn't have complained if they would have suspended him. Because people are always whining at the player who takes the hit, but the player who is hitting have to take responsibility too, and I don't think that Camara was doing that. I think that there should be more debate about this. Because if you see that the player isn't expecting the hit and is keeping his head down, you know that it can cause a serious injury if you hit him hard, and I think that more players should get suspended for doing things like this. As for Camara's hit it certainly looked like a hit to the head. It's due to hits like these that people get serious injuries.

So Stebro would you be OK with a player that always skates with his head down never being allowed to be hit?  How does that make sense in a contact sport?

No, but it's not like all players skate with their heads down all the time, but it can happend for a second, and it's irresponsible to hit hard then, it will only lead to more concussions. And I doubt that very many players would use this as a strategy. But the feeling I get now is that all the players that hit constantly gets away while saying "well he kept his head down, it's his fault". Yes it's a contact sport, but it's also human beings that are being hit, I don't wanna see players have to retire early due to concussion. The players that hit needs to take more responsibility too. If someone gets a concussion it's went over the line, and I don't think it's ok to constantly blame the player with his head down, he didn't get hit because he had his head down, he got hit because the player who was hitting didn't care about it. And that could be seen as in intent to hurt, which is why these people should get suspended more often.

Btw, I've never seen any player that constantly skates with his head down.
