Canada-Czech Republic game
It's the end of the first period in the Canada-Czech Republic tilt and it's 1-0 Canada. John Tavares scored a beauty on the powerplay with 3.3 seconds left in the period. It was getting climatic with all of Canada's scoring chances, and Tavares finally converted. Other than the breakdown there, it's basically an even game, though Canada's Stefan Delle Rovere threw a monster hit by the Czech bench. I can't wait to watch the rest of the game, because this has the makings of a classic, with solid goaltending on both sides, highlighted with an amazing Dustin Tokarski breakaway stop on Vladimir Ruzicka. Stay tuned for more.
