Like gina said, you can get the free preview on espn broadband. The picture and quality is first-rate and comes in very well. Very impressed. The best part is during breaks, you get to hear what the 'casters are saying as they talk about what they want to say when they comeback live.

This has been a whale of a game. That was one of the most entertaining periods so far in the tournament. Finland came out strong getting a quick 2-0 lead. But Sweden cut it to 2-1 on a perfect PP setup for Modin. Finland came right back when Koivu potted a rebound on his backhand. But after a key cross-checking call on Tuomu Ruutu, the Finns took another careless penalty and gave Team Sweden a two-man advantage. They capitalized. Sundin setup Lidstrom for a perfect one-timer by Kiprusoff to make it 3-2. Then Johnsson made a brilliant feed to Modin on the doorstep for a tip-in. So, basically, all three Swedish goals took perfect plays on the man-advantage to beat Kipper. They have the best power play so far in the tournament.

Now they're interviewing Teppo Numminen. He talked about how they have to stay disciplined and not take those penalties. And how it's like a playoff game.

I guess neither of these teams wants to face the Czech Republic in the quarters. LOL

Of course, I'm still stuck with no broadband connection. It's good to hear that Finland's playing well, though.

In professional hockey, the Devils are that rara avis, the team that is largely unmarked by the self-adoration and individualism prevalent amongst other organizations; the team that shines radiantly in the otherwise somber corporate sphere. Through many personnel changes and tribulations their pervasive, unwavering character and desire for victory have reigned triumphant. Whereas other teams may be alluring, the Devils have the rarest of traits: they are exemplary by nature.

The second saw the Finns strike early when Jokinen took advantage of a sloppy turnover. He used Norstrom as a screen to beat a shaky Tellqvist. I don't know why Sweden insists on playing him. He's been inconsistent this whole game. They really should put Salo in. At least he has experience. Really, Henrik Lundqvist should be dressed. The 'casters were saying when they showed his pic on the board in Stockholm it got the loudest ovation :lol:. Doesn't say much for the other two goalies.

Finland killed off a short two-man Swedish advantage late in the period to hold onto the 4-3 lead. Kiprusoff made a few good saves too.

So, it's 4-3 heading to the third.


They interviewed Modin between periods and he said they move the puck well on the power play. That's why it clicks. They're 7-18 in the tournament.


A couple of cool notes about this year's world cup:


-The team that scores first is a perfect 9-0 thus far.

-There have been no lead changes.

Exactly what you said NJDevil. This was an awesome game. Sweden pulled their goalie with a power play and they setup Forsberg on the doorstep to tie it. So, all four goals they scored were on the power play. The Czechs might want to stay out of the box when they meet in what should be a great quarterfinal.

The best part was seeing Sweden pull Tellqvist in OT because of the goal differential. Great stuff.

I actually would have looked into the Sweden-Finland game (even with commentators that would put me to sleep normally, the game wouldn't have), I'm not sure if I get the free preview here in Jersey. I guess I'll have to look see if I see the other game on anywhere :P

It would actually be a (gasp!) good idea of ESPN to give out a free preview during these games.

EDIT: Eh, broadband means over the computer, doh :P Oh well my comp probably wouldn't be able to handle it anyway, and even if it did I couldn't stay on the line for three hours straight.

0-0 after 1. Canada outshot Russia 9-6, but Russia's 6 were of higher quality than Canada's 9.

Mario got a knee to the head and then a boot to the head (skate blade cut his cheek). He's okay.

Great game... I turned it on at the 18:00 mark, but I'm pretty sure that 5 minutes later the period was over. It's that quick. Very few whistles. And the play is so fast you can't stop to think about anything....

2-0. Both 2-1 plays. The latter was a broken 2-1, but Draper was the third man that collected the garbage.
