Finally, a win!

The US finally got it all together and beat Slovakia, 3-1. Coach Ron Wilson decided to bench some of his "superstars" for some hungrier players, and it showed in their play.

We will have to wait for today's game between Russia and Slovakia to determine who we will play in the quarterfinal round. Depending on who wins and by how much, we might end up facing Canada again as the 4th seed -- or we might end up as high as second, just as I predicted.

The European pool turned out pretty much as I thought it would, except that Finland got the #1 seed based on goal differential. Look for Finland and Sweden to make it to the semifinals.
