Hattrick now for Frost. Good evening Mr. Frost!

Welp, turns out that Canada is a little better than Denmark.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

Holmberg ( 29 ) and Sandin ( 8 ) are both on Sweden's second line/pair, so they'll be working together quite a bit.

Hate to say it, cause of national pride and whatnot, but I found the diving and embellishment from Comtois in both games disgraceful.

In reference to your post, yes there are others who share that viewpoint on Comtois, mainly his diving more than even his embellishments.  So much so that it got the ire of Team Russia's Kim Kostin:
