Olympic 2010 GDT - Slovakia vs. Canada
CAN Canada vs. SVK Slovakia
Semifinals

TV: CTV
Slovakia defeated Sweden in Quarterfinal 4-3.
Canada defeated Russia in Quarterfinal 7-3.

PRE-GAME RANT

Well Canada did the unthinkable in their last game… not just a win against a team they haven’t beaten at the Olympics in half a century, but a huge, 7-3 win. This team seams to finally have gotten it together, getting some secondary scoring. The goaltending is still a bit of a question mark, but I wouldn’t say Luongo let in anything particularly bad the last game. Slovakia, meanwhile, is getting some pretty spectacular goaltending from Jaroslav Halak. They also are coming off a big unexpected win of their own, vs. last Olympics’ winner Sweden. This could be another tough battle like the one vs. U.S.A., if Halak has his way.

I’m not even sure what to predict. I’m hoping that Canada’s offense is again firing on all cylinders and I’ll guess a 5-0 win for Canada.

TEAM CANADA ROSTER

Canada vs. Slovakia
Canada Record: 2-0-0
Slovakia Record: 1-1-0
Date: December 29 @ 6:00 PM MST
TV: TSN

Ok this lame ass attempt at a GDT is courtesy of me forgetting to do up a nice picture last night and being stuck at work with only Paint at my disposal.

Canada looks to improve their record to 3-0-0 tonight against Slovakia. After tonight, there is one more game to go in the preliminary round for the Canadians (vs. the United States on Thursday). If you haven’t been watching, you really should tune in and take a look at one of our young stars in action (Jordan Eberle). He’s played pretty phenomenally.
