    Re: World Cup of Hockey 2016

    Meanwhile, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist shows that he's still got it with a 36-save shutout as Sweden blank rivals Finland 2-0.

    Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman and Vancouver Canucks forward Loui Eriksson scored the goals for the Swedes.

    Boston Bruin netminder Tuukka Rask had 28 saves in a losing effort.

    Re: World Cup of Hockey 2016

    Why wasn't Nick Leddy on Team USA. I'm not asking just because I am an Islanders fan and see him play all the time. He is a fantastic defenseman who should fit the style that they wanted to take on Canada. I don't understand why the Johnson's keep getting invited back to team USA when they aren't even that great in the NHL.

    Yandle and Shattenkirk should have been there over the Johnsons.

    I think L.A. Kings general manager Dean Lombardi laid a huge egg with this roster and I think John Tortorella and the coaching staff was atrocious.

    Team North America edged Sweden 4-3 in overtime.

    Team North America needs Finland to beat Russia in order to advance.

    Any win will do for Alex Ovechkin and Team Russia.

    It will be Canada vs. Russia on Saturday in one semifinal.

    Sweden will take on Team Europe in the other semifinal on Sunday.

    Yep... unfortunately that Finnish team was as bad as Team USA.

    I bet you wanted Sweden so that he returns to Isles camp sooner. I have to admit I did too but it's always fun to see Lundquist fail in a huge game like this.

    That's right. Always like to see the supposed "Greatest Goaltender" of all time fail to win the big game. Halak will be game ready whenever he returns to camp. Even know Tavares is on Team Canada I am rooting for Team Europe to win.

    Okay who has ever said that?


    On the flip side, there are plenty of Islander fans who legitimately believe that Halak is a better goalie

    No one on this site. But I have to hear it from Rangers fans all the time. I would agree he is better than Halak. Of course I am jaded by watching Billy Smith. One of the two best playoff goaltenders ever along with the Canadian's goaltender

    I wouldn't say something like that until he stays healthy for a long playoff run.

    Canada played its worst game of the tournament and still won 3-1. This is over tomorrow night.
