OK, so this time officially, Edmonton Oilers prospect Olivier Roy is in goal. Hopefully he can impress tonight. It’s hard to out class a guy who got a shutout, but doing well against the Swiss and doing well against the Swedes are two different animals (sorry Switzerland… you guys can teach a thing or two about defense but have some learning to do offensively).

Curtis Hamilton played last night but to be honest, I didn’t hear his name much (although granted, I wasn’t watching this one too closely – but he is playing on the 4th line and as the 13th forward). I did hear him on the PK though, and he did get in almost alone on goal once, but I believe his linemates were on a change, so there wasn’t much to that chance.

FYI, we’re running two GDT’s tonight. The Oilers also play, but as luck would have it, the two games won’t overlap. The Canada game starts at 5:30 PM MST and the Oilers game is at 8:30 PM MST. The GDT thread for the Oilers will be up soon.

So, apparently I’m supposed to keep predicting losses for Canada, since my 2-1 Swiss victory prediction resulted in an 8-0 win for the Canadians. So I’ll predict a 5-4 Swedish victory tonight. Cross your fingers.
