In Group C action,  Finland finds first place by beating Norway 4-2.  In the second game, Sweden found their game beating Germany soundly 5-1.  Here are the current Group C standings:

We've secretly replaced Russian athletes with Folgers Crystals. Let's see if anyone notices.

The short answer is, I didn't want to have to keep typing "Olympic Athletes From Russia" all the time so I kept it to "Russia."

Group A have completed their first round games and what a surprise!  Switzerland is the first to win all their games by edging the Czech Rep 1-0!  In the second game, Canada breezed past South Korea 6-1.  With that being said, Switzerland finished at the top of the Group A standings and have earned the top seed in the tournament:

Tomorrow Group B will finish out their games with USA and Russia most likely playing for first place...

1:0? in hockey? with a melon as puck.

 

i thought i can play hockey here, grmbl...

 

but ok, switzerland is leading...

 

it was it was a long time ago the last match wouldn't have been uncommon ch vs. cz.

only the result is very uncommon, 1:0.

 

olympic games differ from the pro's.

 

it was the days when hockey players had such a toothless smile (and downhillers weared a woolen cap).

Group B has finished up and was nothing short of chaotic!  Russia claims first place by blanking USA 2-0!  Then Slovenia upsets Slovakia in a tight contest 3-2!  Here is how the Group B standings ended up:

 

GB3

 

On to Group C next!

Group C finishes out the first round of play with Germany dominating Norway 4-1.  In the second game Sweden defeats Finland in OT 3-2, but it wasn't enough points to overtake the Fins who end up atop the Group C standings:

 

GC3

 

I will post the tournament brackets later today to highlight the second round match ups...

I love Slovenia's real life team colors: sky blue and bright green.  I first noticed them in the last Euro handball tourey.  Yellow-green should be used for them in the game.

Ya know, it's funny you did this, because I was thinking of doing a world baseball tournament.  The problem with that is so many teams are red and blue.  I'd use yellow-green and cyan for Slovenia, that would look awesome.

The second round is complete and none of the games were really that close.  Germany defeats Czech Rep 8-2.  USA beats South Korea 5-2.  Sweden skates past Slovenia 5-1.  Slovakia shuts out Norway 6-0.  The brackets are updated below for the quarterfinals:

It seems like since the US/Russia match up, their game hasn't been the same.  The fact that they gave up 2 goals to South Korea is a warning that their defense is struggling.  I was hoping to see USA, Canada, Finland, and Sweden in the semis.  Only two of those teams will remain after today and will probably be the favorite to play in the gold medal game.

 

Never understood the whole rioting thing in sports.  It brings more disrespect to a country than losing a gold medal, IMO.

The vast majority of us Canadians consider a riot being when we go to Tim Hortons and just drink coffee and eat donuts......yep thats pretty much it.

The quarterfinal round was very exciting as all games were decided by one goal!  Finland beat Sweden 4-3 and Slovakia upsets Russia 4-3, both games went to OT!  Switzerland squeaks by Germany 4-3, and in the big one, USA outscores Canada 3-2!  Here is a look at the current brackets...
