Poor Russia. They won a hard fought game against the Czech Republic yesterday to win their Group B and advance straight to the quarter-finals. Their reward? A probable quarter-final game against Canada.
I'll bet the last team Russia wanted to face in the quarters is Canada. Tomorrow night, we'll get another tune-up against Germany, another chance to warm up Roberto Luongo and reset our lines and focus.
Then, it's Canada vs. Russia for a chance to play in the semi-finals. That's going to be awesome.
