Team Canada, Woo?
In case, you didn't wake up at 7 a.m. this morning like me to watch Canada crush Italy, then I'm happy to tell you that Canada did beat the host team, 7-2.
I'm not so happy to tell you that Canada didn't play as well as they should have. The men's team wasn't as impressive as Canada's women's team, who beat Italy, 16-0.
But back to the good news. Canada wasn't a horrible mess and showed they can rack up the goals quickly.
Later this week, the women take on Finland in a semi-final. I hope they can keep up their mad goals-for and goals-against margin of 35.

Toronto Maple Leaf Tomas Kaberle, who's always criticized about not shooting the puck, scored two goals in under three minutes in the Czech Republic's 4-1 win against Germany (Canada's next opponent)...Sticking with the Czechs, Dominik Hasek went down with a hamstring/groin injury, which has put a massive smile on my face. I knew it was only a matter of time before Hasek, who also plays for the Ottawa Senators, would go down with an injury like this. I hope this is the end of his season, because I am not a fan...Mats Sundin scored a goal in Sweden's 7-2 beat down of Kazakhstan.
