- Canada destroyed Germany, finding some chemistry and confidence along the way, setting up the Wednesday game everyone wanted to see: Canada vs. Russia!
- At the end of the Germany game the Canadian fans chanted "We want Russia!" Be careful what you wish for.
- Normally playing the extra game rather than having a bye is a negative, and it still might prove to be one for Canada. But it actually was very much a positive for Canada, allowing them to lessen the tension on the bench, creating a positive environment, and, perhaps most importantly of all, finding linemates for Sidney Crosby.
- Predictions for the game? I really don't know. I will never bet against Canada, but that being said I am very nervous of Russia. I will predict this much though - the game will be another classic, and for the only time during these Olympics there will be no one on Robson Street from 4:30 until the end of the game! Everyone will be watching this game, in Canada and in all 11 Russian time zones.
