    And that makes 3! Finland 3, Sweden 1 @ 16:37 in the 3rd ...

    These Swedish commentators get so excited I thought Sweden scored the last couple of times

    From the tournament back in 1995 that made a fan of the game for good (back when I wasn't stuck watching a poor quality but reasonably smooth stream ), Finland's first world title all the way down to tonight. #2 coming up .

    That will make it 3 out of 3 for the day .

    Tack storebror ! So it ended up 6-1 giving Finland it's 2nd ever worldtitle, far behind Sweden with 8 and all-time juggernut Russia with 25. For me Russia is alway my favourite of the big countries with Finland my pick of the outsiders. Other than that Europe > NA . So as part of the spread-the-wealth program , good to see Finland take the gold again.

    Of course, we're more caught up with the Stanley Cup Conference Finals here since the Canucks are still in it. This is a rare occasion for the city who has been a model for loser franchises. However this year's version of the Canucks have had only the Stanley Cup in their sights and they're looking good after beating San Jose 3-2 in the opener. From reading comments on various hockey sites, apparently all of Canada still hates us, haha

    Haha, yes just happened to read an apparently annual discussion that coincidentally rears it head every time Canada or the US of A is elmininated on how they really don't care because the SC is all that matters anyway. Which ofcourse is true, especially from a player's point of view (I'm pretty sure anyone would give up even an olympic gold to win the SC) but the likes of Ovechkin can't wait to get on the plane every year to join Team Russia at the worlds. And Heatley and Tavares were there as well, Canada easily had the best squad there (as always really). Strange in a way with so few Canadian NHL teams left and barely any real contenders how it's still all that. On a sidenote: apparently Russia has beaten Canada in every level down the U18's this season in championships.

    As for Vancouver, good to see them still in it but also still can't get used to their current uniforms even if it is back to the original . (which reminds me to still get a reproduction of the flying skate uniform in black red gold/yellow )

    Haha Oprah should buy a team and move it up north ... or back down to Atlanta again . Winnipeg back, Phoenix almost to Quebec I read. I guess that covers all Canadian cities (edit: I see there are even more without in Ontario, well not counting the gazillion minor leagues)

    Daniel Sedin had 8 shots, some high end chances. The Sedins were hardly invisible. It was more all about Tim Thomas

    Well, yes, but no, I expected them to get it done.

    No worries, I believe they will soon enough. If Thomas didn't play the way he did, the Canucks would have walked away with Game 1

    Let's just say I'm a Loungo fan. I'm more of a Flyers fan but how can I root for the Ducks or the Sharks, even the Kings when they aren't in there for the running. Geography man, geography (except for the FLYERS)...you know what I mean?

    Good luck with the Flyers. They should have taken out Boston .

    We nearly flew down to San Jose for game 3 of the Western Conference final until we found out how much they wanted for 4 seats in a row. Add the flight, hotel, etc, etc and we decided we'd go down for a regular season game next season instead.

    Ticket prices here in Van are insane. Better to watch on TV and save the $$ for beer and food instead, haha

    Prediction for G2: Canucks win comfortably
