It will not get much publicity as Olympic victory obviously but we beat the Russians again last night to advance in World Cup semifinals.
To win the World Cup we will have to go through Canada and probably Finland- deja vue to 1980 Olympics.
Esche is turning into top flight goalie to the surprise of myself-did bot think he was this good.
Being a neutral observer I will root for Finland as I like the underdog. Canada will get all sort of abuse if they lose with home advantage so they have that extra motivation and Brodeur is supposed to start from what I read.
I do not mind at all seeing Canada win-knowing that hockey is there passion.
Owners and players are at a impasse with this salary cap-sadly for myself -not to watch any hockey I do not think we will see either side giving in for a couple of months
