The real deal kicks off one week from today, but a couple of exhibitions are in the books.
Sweden 2 (Naslund, D. Sedin)
Slovakia 0 (none)
Germany 3 (Goc 2, Erhoff)
Russia 3 (Samsonov, Avanasenkov, Frolov)
Finland 1 (Lehtinen)
Czech Republic 1 (Zidlicky)
USA 3 (Rolston, Guerin, Leopold)
Canada 1 (Heatley)
Nice start for the Americans, though Canada was playing this one without Lemieux, Richards & St. Louis.
The actual tournament will begin next Monday with the Czech Republic & Finland renewing acquaintances. The following day features the USA vs Canada and Sweden vs Germany.
All USA games are carried on either ESPN or ESPN2. Check this link for the complete schedule, times and TV.
Should be fun as this could be the last we see of the best hockey players in the world for some time.
